One of the most remote National Parks with an amazing story to discover

We took the NPS-endorsed ferry for $170 pp and thought it was worth every penny. It takes 2.5 hours of travel and the ferry crew feeds you breakfast and lunch aboard the boat. I... read more

We took the NPS-endorsed ferry for $170 pp and thought it was worth every penny. It takes 2.5 hours of travel and the ferry crew feeds you breakfast and lunch aboard the boat. I recommend signing up for the fort tour when you arrive, grab lunch after that's over, and then spend the rest of the time snorkeling. The sea... More

Key West is a beautiful place, but Dry Tortugas was the highlight of my trip. Took the Yankee Freedom, where the staff was fantastic, and did not feel overcrowded. Could walk the fort without running into other people. The fort is a beautiful ruin, but the snorkeling and waters surrounding the island are perfection. White sand beaches, turquoise waters, and...

Breathtaking views mixed with great american history. Amazing craftsmanship, marine life, friends and family. may I suggest going with Adventure Water sports Charter. Captain Jack & Captain Kelly give a wonderful experience on this multi-day trip.

Distant, beautiful, and peaceful. We took the Yankee Freedom III, the boat and crew were excellent. The water was choppy. If you are prone to motion sickness, please take the crews advise and take some dramamine. One there, you may take a guided tour of Fort Jefferson, or spend your time on your own. We opted for snorkeling and thought... More

We took the seaplane out to the Dry Tortugas. Missed touring the fort because we couldn't stop snorkeling. A great adventure. Swimming with tarpon, tropical fish, viewing corals. The pilot was great. Book early because the flights book quickly and you don't want to miss this.

Spent the day a took the Yankee Freedom out to Dry Tourtugas. Boat ride was long but nice. Tour guide was awesome. Snorkeling was scary. Got caught in a current and was scared. Water was rough and hard to see thru the googles they gave us. But the fort was interesting and the fish along the wall was beautiful. I... More

We took the jet ferry out in the morning in beautiful weather it was a great ride. The fort is everything it's toute to be. The guide was extremely knowageable. And the history is fascinating. Be sure and go up on top of the fort. The trip home was as good or better than the trip out.
