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

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
