After departing from Deering Estate, a Biscayne National Park Ranger guides you on a journey through Biscayne Bay to see the iconic Cape Florida, Fowey Rocks, and Boca Chita lighthouses and learn about the history that surrounds them. You cut though the alluring Stiltsville and go to Boca Chita Key to get up close to Biscayne National Park’s iconic Boca Chita Lighthouse. You may also have the opportunity to see wildlife, including dolphins, sea turtles, and many shore birds. The vessel complies with Coast Guard Regulations and is ADA accessible.
Please note that the Boca Chita lighthouse remains closed due to COVID-19 restrictions. We make every attempt to go as close as possible to Fowey Rocks Lighthouse, however weather and sea conditions determine how close the vessel can approach this lighthouse while still providing you with a safe and enjoyable experience.
