Deering Estate 16701 SW 72nd Avenue
Miami, FL 33157 United States

Departing from the Deering Estate on the Pelican Skipper, a comfortable riding 45 foot Corinthian catamaran, this three hour tour will allow you to experience Biscayne National Park in a new light! Guided by a Biscayne National Park Ranger, guests will journey through Biscayne Bay to see Boca Chita Island and learn about the history that surrounds them. The vessel complies with Coast Guard Regulations and is ADA accessible.

Each guided tour lasts approximately three hours and includes opportunities to explore and learn about popular and scenic Boca Chita Key and Biscayne Bay. Climb the lighthouse (must be at least 42″ tall), explore the island, and hike the trail (mosquitoes are prevalent on the trails in the summer). Staff engage you with the history of the park and why mangroves, seagrasses, and hardwood hammock habitats are all vital to the health of the local ecosystems.

Cost: $56 plus tax and processing fees.  Advance reservations are required. For times & tickets click HERE.  Check-in is at the Main Gate.

The tour departing from Deering Estate is possible thanks to a partnership between Biscayne National Park, the Florida National Parks Association, Deering Estate and the Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department.
