This park is really worth the trip. We came by seaplane which was an adventure by itself! Lots to do here like explore the civil war fort snorkel swim birdwatch or relax on the beaches. Top marks!

Well worth a visit, if your finances can stretch to travelling via seaplane then I'd highly recommend. The views are breathtaking and the time spent at the Fort is adequate to explore and snorkel. The airline supply a cooler with drinks and snorkel equipment.

Enjoyed the trip on the Yankee Freedom in route to the Dry Tortuga's. We have even discussed coming back at another time and maybe looking into camping. I imagine the night sky would be incredible.

Certainly, there are better beaches and better coral for snorkeling in the world; however, I can tell you there is no experience so singular as enjoying the beaches and snorkeling in Dry Trotugas in the shadow of Fort Jefferson. And unfortunately, there's not really anything...More

We were there in December, so I cannot help you with the water temp in June. I’m sure it would be very warm though since it was fine in December. We brought our own mask and snorkel for my husband and myself. My daughter... More

Camping here is primitive. You may want to attempt camping closer to home first and see how you like it and give yourselves an idea of what to expect. There is nothing here. You can not purchase something you forgot.
