Sailing Eco Tours in Biscayne National Park

Explore one of America’s treasures under sail on an private multi-day live aboard sailing trip. You will explore a rare combination of aquamarine waters, emerald islands, and fish-bejeweled coral reefs. You can sail the clear calm waters of the bay, kayak remote mangrove trails, explore ashore at islands only accessible by boat, fish, learn about sailing, snorkel in John Pennakamp Coral Reef Park or just relax with your family or friends. We  enjoy sharing our knowledge of the Keys and park ecology and history. Learn about fishing under sail.  Relax with a drink at sunset,  read a book, or help sail the boat. It will be a vacation you won’t forget. Families of 6 and groups of up to 4 adults are welcome.

Eco tour in the Bay

Stay in remote anchorages seldom visited, watch the sun go down and the stars appear as you enjoy nature. Add in things like corals, butterflies, birds, and manatees, and Biscayne is a great place for wildlife watching, including birding. Boca Chita is the park’s most popular island stop for a day visit or overnight.  A half-mile hiking trail starts just east of the restrooms. The trail continues to the south end of the island curving back north and emerging near the pavilion and picnic area. The island’s crowning glory, and Biscayne National Park’s de facto symbol, is the 65-foot ornamental lighthouse built by Mark Honeywell, one of the island’s former owners, in the 1930s. The observation deck provides a fantastic view of the islands, bay, ocean, and the Miami, Key Biscayne, and Miami Beach skylines.

Bring your Family! We understand the need for kids to be active and try to pace our trip to keep them interested. Margie and I have spent the last five years working with the Boy Scouts of America at their High Adventure Seabase taking youth groups on 6-day liveaboard charters. We understand and enjoy working with all age groups.
