Biscayne National Park, located off the east coast of Florida south of Miami is mostly underwater. Actually, 95% of the park is off shore. To truly appreciate the beauty of this park you need to be in the water. It is a subtropical place where a mainland mangrove shoreline, a warm shallow bay, and small islands or keys, living coral reefs intermingle.
We took a ranger led snorkeling tour. It was unusually cold that day and the water temperature was brisk. Nevertheless, we went into the aquatic environment and saw an array of vibrant fish and a stingray.
We went back to Biscayne in December of 2012 and the temperature was much warmer. We were able to enjoy snorkeling better, but the waves were rough. However, we had a fantastic time.
