Loved the boat ride, the Forts history was interesting and the view from the top was outstanding. The best part of the boat was the Snorkeling! Fantastic. We thought 4+ hours there could be long but it flew by so fast.

The Dry Tortugas National Park is perhaps one of the most quiet places you can go to. Take the ferry and head to the key and you will understand why all the birds still stop here on their travels. The park rangers are extremely helpful....More

Book a trip to the Dry Tortugas! This place is nothing short of amazing. White sandy beaches, calm, clear, aqua water, tropical fish - and a fort! What more could a person ask for?!

Dense with history, Fort Jefferson is a stunning architectural feat surrounded by some of the best snorkeling the Keys have to offer, due to its protected status. Enormous grouper and recovering staghorn coral are within safe swimming distance. You don’t have to be an engineer...More

Not really a beautiful place, just an old fort, but lots of history there. And you can snorkel right off the little beach there and get great views of varied sealife around the pilings of what used to be an old pier.

We luckily got tickets here the DAY before we wanted to go (that’s super rare, apparently, but we go extremely lucky)! I was SPEECHLESS once we got there. It’s nothing like you’ve ever seen before. The water is such an amazing color! The snorkeling is...More

Our epic 3 night/4 day camping experience at the Dry Tortugas National Park is one that will always bring back beautiful memories. We rode the ferry "Yankee Freedom III" 70 miles out of Key West to Garden Key the home of Fort Jefferson. The trip...More

Highly recommend the visit. Tour the fort, snorkel, or just lay on the beach. Only way in is by boat or sea plane. Yankee Freedom provides day trip. Sea planes are only there for a couple hours.

This is a bucket list trip and must do! Our family focused more on the snorkeling and beach area but we hear the Ft. Jefferson tour is neat as well. The snorkeling on the day we went was spectacular with great visibility and calm waters....More

The ferry books well in advance so be sure to book well before you get to Key West. It is a bit pricey but it is a 2.5 hour boat ride with breakfast, booze and lunch. The catamaran is very stable, has inside/outside seating, food...More

Fills up fast, each plane carries 10 people, with only a few tours per day. Call as far ahead as you can.

I absolutely think it is worth it, but I would splurge for the half day sea plane trip rather than the ferry. It's only a half day, and it was a great way to spend the day. Yes, it is a little pricy, but I think it was well... More

I think they fill up quickly in advance. The campsites book out a year! The office staff is very friendly, give them a call and see what the booking tally is well in advance and see when you need to book your trip by... More
