Stiltsville Guided Bay Cruises (April) CANCELLED
With the safety of our community as our top priority as the community deals with COVID-19, this program has been cancelled.
Journey through the northern most parts of Biscayne National Park to the alluring historic Stiltsville Houses. And learn about the rich history of this area of Miami and Biscayne National Park.
Departing from the Deering Estate on the Pelican Skipper, a comfortable riding 45 foot Corinthian catamaran, Stiltsville tours will take you for an up-close look at the village in the bay. Stiltsville is a reminder of the time when this area was known to be the playground for the wealthy. On this 3-hour boat “ed-venture,” you too can experience what draws people to these legendary waters. This is an experience that the whole family will enjoy. The vessel complies with Coast Guard Regulations and is ADA accessible.
April 2020 cruise dates:
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.
