Sunday morning & moonlight canoe tours at the Deering Estate

MIAMI (October 27, 2015)

Take a Sunday Morning or Moonlight Canoe Tour across Biscayne Bay! These tours will depart from Charles Deering’s boat basin and stop at Chicken Key, a seven-acre mangrove island and bird rookery approximately one mile off-shore. Chicken Key contains sand dunes and mangrove forests and is surrounded by sand bars, tidal flats, seagrass beds and rocky debris.  A Deering Education and Interpretive Staff Member will accompany these tours, sharing ecological facts about the bay. Morning canoers can observe marine wildlife such as manatees, sea turtles and numerous bird species. Moonlight canoers will enjoy a campfire and s’mores on Chicken Key.
