Our tour guides were Castle and Michelle. They were very nice and knowledgeable. The ride out to Boca Chita was stunning. Once we got there, the island was even more beautiful. Great price/value for the level of the overall experience!

Beautiful location. Plenty of room to sit & enjoy. There's bathrooms located on the key. Beautiful little beach with shallow water. There is a lighthouse you can visit climb to the top. Camping is also allowed.

If you come to National Parks for nature, peace and quite, stay away from Boca Chita Key on a weekend. It is mobbed with board, campers and picnickers. A lot of the boats have generators up on shore, adding to the noise. There is a...More

Took the 3 hr tour from Biscayne National Park. Saw a manatee in the marina so that was a good start. You get about a 1 hr ride out, 1 hr on Boca Chita and 1 hr back in. The guide was very entertaining and...More

We selected the Boca Chita Key boat tour only because it was the most affordable option at Biscayne National Park, but it was an incredibly pleasant surprise. The boat ride itself was fun with beautiful views of the ocean, keys, and Miami. Boca Chita is...More

We took the Boca Chita boat tour with the national park. We learned a lot of history of the area on the trip and enjoyed a half hour walk around the island.

I highly recommend the boat ride from the visitor's center to Boca Chita. The tour guides were great, very informative about the park itself, the history of the Boca Chita Island and the keys in general. The lighthouse was cool to see and the island...More
