All day taste of the park with 6 people max, suitable for all ages.
Join us as we explore Biscayne National Park under sail. Full day trips will sail east across the bay for several hours before stopping ashore at Boca Chita or Adams Key. After a lunch break ashore we will anchor in a protected area where you can swim, use our paddle watercraft, or snorkel. Please note: We do not go to the reefs on the Atlantic side for snorkeling, instead we will snorkel in the calm waters within the bay and alongside the fringes of the mangroves.
A library of relevant books are on board including fish, birds and invertebrate identification books. Our boats are rigged with shade, but there are also additional areas where you can relax in the sun. We have drinking water on board along with full marine bathrooms and a fresh water hose.
Full Day sails start at 10:00 AM and finish at 4:00 PM. The cost is $149 per person with a minimum of 2 people, or $690 for the boat with a maximum of 6 people. Please arrive 30 minutes prior to program start time in order to check in.
Included in the trip price we supply kayaks, paddleboards and snorkeling equipment. Snorkeling gear is available in a limited supply, for the best fit you are welcome to bring your own gear. Life jackets are required and supplied for optional paddling or snorkeling. Please do not bring scuba diving or fishing equipment.
This program is designed for all ages. If the participant is under 8, life jackets are required and supplied when underway.
