We went back to Key West for a friends Birthday and Dry Tortugas was a highlight. This was something we missed our last trip because it does take a better part of the day. It's an awesome boat ride out with a huge Breakfast Buffet...More
We enjoyed the park, but we did not realize how long the trip would take to get there and get back. The rough seas did not help. However, the crew was great and they did a good job keeping the cabin and bathrooms clean. The...More
Me and my boyfriend did the snorkeling and walked all around this beautiful place! We had a blast and enjoyed every second. Everyone on the boat was so kind and the boat was clean and the food was very good!
This day trip was so worth it. The beauty of this place is amazing. No need to edit any of the photos at all. We did the boat excursion and loved every part of this day. This should be on everyone's bucket list for sure!!
One of the highlights of our trip to Key West. Not everyday that you get fly in a sea plane. The journey to the fort was part of the DryTortugas experience. Definitely spring for the Sea Plane. You wont be disappointed.
The seaplane trip to the Dry Tortugas National Park was great. The snorkeling gears was included. We had a great time snorkeling around the outside wall of the fort. My husband walked around the fort while we swam. He didn't see anything interesting. Definitely worth...More
Lots to do here. Tour the fort. Walk the grounds. Snorkel the beautiful waters.
We took the seaplane. The full day trip will give you more time. The morning trip is very quiet if you want to get here before the ferry.
There are no...More
This is a place that needs to be seen by everyone in the world. It is incredible how this Fort has held up to the elements for so many years. It is very beautiful. The snorkeling is amazing all the different types of fish you...More
I had a awesome day over there! Me, my wife and 2 others friends we went to this park to see the jails and sunset over the beach! I drank some “key West beer” and enjoy a lot! Is a good beach to swing 1/2...More

Try a Day Trip by Catamaran, it’s 5-star, (search the web - don’t quit for day trips by boat to Dry Tortugas - be persistent -call by cell every lead and you will connect) it’s a beautiful, fun, boating day, usually great people on board, guided tour at the fort, best option to the Seaplane out of The Key West Airport. The Cat is a 10-hour round trip, operating out of the Key West Marina. Trust us, you will always think back with a smile to your wonderful time in Key West, plus your decision to take the Cat to Fort Jefferson (Dry Tortugas). The idea of a fort being built where it’s at, back in the day, is outrageous. It’s called “Dry” Tortugas is because there was no water on the island (actually a key). Enjoy

The North Coaling Dock Ruins had thousands of Silver Side Fish being ran by a school of Tarpons, which we were swimming among. We also saw a sting ray and 2 juvenile Barracudas there. Both the North and South Coaling dock Ruins had beautiful coral and plant life as well. The best snorkeling we have ever done was at these two places.

Sounds like a good plan. Just be sure you allow plenty of time to get back to Fort Lauderdale for your flight, or consider spending a night in that area prior to the flight. April is a beautiful month to visit.
Dry Tortugas National Park? (4 Replies)
The last review I saw for this park was dated 2006. Any ideas why? It sounds very interesting. Anyone have feedback about going? I read that some book a sea plane and others a ferry ride. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Boy Scouts: restaurants and activities (10 Replies)
We have a group of boy scouts staying in Key West a day before heading to Sea Base. They arrive around 2pm and have until noon the next day. Would like to get recommendations of restaurants, maybe with seafood. Would need dinner and lunch the next day. Also, looking to sight see or do a water type of activity. Looking at one of these as possibilities: the Shipwreck Museum, Southern Most point, Rippley's believe or not odditorium and Dry Tortugas National park. Any suggestions? These...More

The dry Tortugas isn't a real option. Thats a whole day event. The sunset festival will provide them with enough to do in the evening. Southern most Point is about a 5 minute deal, depending upon the line waiting to have their pictures taken there. Ripleys - IMHO - is more of a tourist trap thing, but thats just me. Take them to the beach - Smathers Beach - and let them tire themselves out. Rent bikes and take a ride around the island. You can get into Mel Fishers Museum and get a...More
