Actions and Precautions We are Taking to Reduce the Risk of COVID-19 Transmission

The safety of our visitors and crew is our highest priority. We have worked closely with Biscayne National Park management to create operating procedures that will reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

We are all in this together, we appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we implement these new operating procedures. Please read your confirmation and reminder emails carefully for information on our procedures. Signs will be posted to help direct you once you arrive for your activity.

For the safety of all our visitors and staff, if you are sick or have flu-like symptoms please do not book a Biscayne National Park Institute activity until you are certain you are no longer contagious. If you are sick and have flu like symptoms and already have reservations, please call (786) 465-4058 or email us at [email protected] to cancel and we will provide you with a complete refund.

Prior to your activity review the following questions:

  • Do you have a fever, or have you felt feverish in the past 14-21 days?
  • Are you having shortness of breath or other difficulties with breathing?
  • Do you have a cough?
  • Any other flu-like symptoms such as gastrointestinal upset, headache, or fatigue?
  • Have you experience recent loss of taste or smell?
  • Have you been in contact with any confirmed COVID-19 positive patients?

If your answer is “yes” to any of the above questions you will not be permitted to participate in a Biscayne National Park Institute activity. You will receive a complete refund. If prior to your visit you know that you will answer “yes,” please call (786) 465-4058 or email us at [email protected] and we will cancel your reservation and provide you with a complete refund.
