Information on renting a boat to visit Egmont Key State Park

Quick Details

A favorite destination of locals and tourists alike, no matter your adventure. History meets splendor with lots of wildlife to spot along the trails and shoreline including gopher tortoises, Florida box turtles, dolphins, and manatee. Viewable only by boat, a bird sanctuary at the southern tip is home to hummingbirds, a variety of shorebirds, and provides a migration stop for many more. Hum your favorite island tune while you turn over shells, snorkel in the fort ruins, swim, and soak up the rays. Visitors can also view the Egmont Key lighthouse and ruins from Fort Dade.
