Biscayne National Park Snorkeling and Scuba Diving
The only way to see Biscayne National Park is by boat, and the only way to scuba dive in Biscayne National Park is with Tropic Scuba. We are the only dive company with a permit to scuba dive in the park. Come enjoy a guided private half-day trip into the park where the entire trip is customized just for you and your group and the experience is all yours.
Half day Private Charters include your own boat, USCG licensed Captain, certified and insured Scuba Instructor in the water with you, cooler filled with ice and stocked with bottled water and Gatorade as well as fresh fruit.
- Snorkeling trips are at least 4 hours in length, and include high end snorkel gear and in water guide.
- Scuba Diving trips are 4-5 hours depending on site selection and include Nitrox Tanks. Note, our instructors are all nitrox instructors and as such we are able to guide you using nitrox even if your not nitrox certified. Nitrox is not mandatory but recommended.
Snorkeling trips in Biscayne National Park include exploring the Maritime Heritage Trail with sites such as the Mandalay which lies in shallow water and is teaming with Tropical Fish, resident Nurse Sharks, Eels, Octopus, and countless other species of aquatic life. If you prefer to explore the pristine reef, we can check out Bache Shoal also in very shallow water. If you want to free-dive a little deeper and challenge yourself a bit, we can take you to Fowey Canyon which boasts a football field-sized patch of gorgeous, healthy reef with great relief and dramatic outcroppings framing a white canyon of sand. Each private trip includes the use of high-end snorkeling gear and a vest, as well as an in-water guide. We can accommodate up to 6 passengers whether snorkelers or simply sunbathers.
