The Florida National Parks are wildlife sanctuaries and places of historical significance.
The Biscayne National Park Institute offers snorkeling at a shipwreck and along coral reefs, cruises to Boca Chita Key, sailing on Biscayne Bay and Jones Lagoon, and other tours.
Snorkeling is trendy as visitors explore the coral reefs and varied marine life. Fort Jefferson is open for self-guided tours where you can learn about the “Guardian of the Gulf".
One of the most common activities is wildlife viewing. To see alligators, visit Shark Valley, walk the Anhinga Trail, or go to Eco Pond.
Birding and wildlife viewing are popular outdoor activities. You’ll spend most of your time outdoors here, taking in the natural beauty of this vast Florida wilderness.
