Welcome to Biscayne National Park
A bit shadowed by the Everglades, Biscayne requires a little extra planning, but you get a lot more reward 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.
