“Amazing place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Would highly recommend a trip to the Dry Tourtugas if you're planning a visit to Key West! Was the highlight of our two week vacation to the keys...Four hours isn't enough time to fully enjoy this place! Plan an overnight camping trip if at all possible!

“Wonderful day trip, long boat rides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

You should know at the outset that you will spend five or so hours commuting to and from the island. Once there, the tour of the fort is really cool, great photo opportunities and something I had never seen before. The beaches were fine and the snorkeling was pretty good. Very expensive, but the highlight of our trip so far.

“Awesome trip with breath taking views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Great trip! Snorkeling wasn't that great but the walk through the fort and its historical significance was well worth it. The view from the third level of the fort by the cannons was breathtaking.

“great day adventure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

great day trip, learned a lot about the history of fort jefferson that i never knew before. thoroughly enjoyed walking around the fort and seeing the beautiful architecture. able to go up to the top and see the beautiful scenery surrounding the island. spent a few hours snorkeling on the beach. would have loved to see more colorful reefs but it is still beautiful and seeing all the fish swimming around is awesome. spoke to one of the volunteers and it is amazing that they actually stay on the island for days/weeks at a time.
