Flamingo Marina Rentals & Boat Tours

Boating in Southern Everglades Highway

The most isolated portion of the park is a squat marina where you can go on a backcountry boat tour or rent boats. Due to its isolation, this area is subject to closure during bad weather. You can rent kayaks and canoes here; if you do, you’re largely left to explore the channels and islands of Florida Bay on your own.

During rough weather be cautious, even when on land, as storm surges can turn an attractive spread of beach into a watery stretch of danger fairly quickly.
