Welcome to Biscayne National Park
A bit shadowed by the Everglades, Biscayne requires a little extra planning, but you'll be rewarded for your effort. The offshore keys, accessible only by boat, offer pristine opportunities for camping. Generally summer and fall are the best times to visit the park; you’ll want to snorkel when the water is calm. This is some of the best reef-viewing and snorkeling you’ll find in the USA, outside Hawaii and nearby Key Largo.
Fortunately this unique 300-sq-mile park is easy to explore independently with a canoe, or via a boat tour.
