Fort Duvernette is easily accessible from the mainland by boat. However, my pro-tip is to take the free ferry to Young Island, walk to the back of the island with some snorkeling gear, and from there it is only about 50 meters of beautiful snorkeling over to the jetty.

The climb up is not too arduous and the views are excellent. However, it is not worth a special trip; visit only if you are it the area, and in a boat!
