Water levels can rise in the Backcountry Marina basin at any given time. If the water level becomes too high, we are unable to accommodate off-dock reservations as we need to pass under a bridge. Last-minute decisions could be made as late as the hours before arrival.

Embark on a relaxing journey through Whitewater Bay with your family and friends while enjoying the comfort of these aquatic accommodations. The 42-foot houseboats sleep a maximum of 6 guests (due to a cozy fit, we strongly recommend only 4 adults maximum at one time!) and are fully equipped with all the necessities as well as essential amenities. All houseboats are located in the backcountry marina at Flamingo, located 38 miles from the entrance to Everglades National Park.
