A wide expanse of open water and mangrove-fringed shorelines, these waters are perfect for kayakers. Too shallow for motor boats, you’ll never have to worry about wakes!
Many return visitors to Biscayne National Park use the small islands in Adams Key as a base camp. From here, you’ll have access to the creeks, channels, and lagoons at the southern edge of the park.
Jones Lagoon never fails to give paddlers a number of face to face encounters with rays, upside-down jellyfish, schools of fish, and many wading birds!
If you kayak through Hurricane Creeks, bring some snorkeling equipment. Underneath your kayak, you can find a hidden world of sea squirts, crabs, anemones beneath the mangrove roots.
While canoe/kayak rentals are not currently offered, launching from a designated area in the park is free of charge. Biscayne National Park requires no pass or fee to enter.
