Biscayne National Park Institute | Biscayne National Park, FL

The true beauty of Biscayne National Park is that it offers a different experience for each visitor and we can help you gain a deeper connection with the park, its history and habitats, or whatever interests you. Programs range from a few hours to a day in length, and highlight the park’s amazing wildlife, rich history, and awe-inspiring marine ecosystems. Join us for guided and exciting educational eco experiences that can include sailing, snorkeling, paddling, wildlife watching, and exploring the islands.

Located just 20 miles south of Miami, Biscayne National Park protects the northernmost group of living coral reefs in the United States and its ecosystem. Over 95% of the park is “underwater” and is accessible only by boat. It consists of a rare combination of aquamarine waters home to vibrant fish, sea turtles, dolphins, and manatees, beautiful islands with mangrove trees, and unique coral reefs. It also has over 10,000 years of human history, from pirates and shipwrecks to pineapple farmers and presidents.

Explore the mangrove estuaries or the shipwrecks in the bay and ocean or go under the waves to see the colorful coral reefs. Visit the uninhabited Florida Keys and walk the natural beaches and trails. There are also picnic areas and restrooms. Discover this Florida gem with the Biscayne National Park Institute, a non-profit where your purchase directly benefits the park!
