Absolutely incredible experience! The crew was wonderful. The ride over was great and the info provided was great. We loved exploring the fort, so much history to take in. I personally had a rough ride back, but not due to anything but my weak belly!...More

The crew is amazing, and they supply everything you need and more. Breakfast, lunch, snorkeling gear. All you need is a good pair of shoes to hike around Fort Jefferson.

It was a lovely trip over to the Dry Tortugas. Boat was clean but would have liked to have more indoor, air conditioned seating on the way back- way too many people sleeping across seats or holding seats inside but sitting outside. A more attentive...More

My husband and I had a great day trip to the Dry Tortugas. Breakfast and lunch on the boat were very nice. We thought the two hour trip would drag, but it flew by. Once at the dock, we thoroughly enjoyed the history talk. And...More

Unbelievable trip with a great staff. They went above and beyond to accommodate all the seasick travelers on the way to Dry Tortugas. Read the warnings and take necessary measures if you get seasick. Very rough trip down and the decks had to be closed...More

Campers also get the snorkeling gear. Also, don’t forget they sale ice cream on the boat. A must when it comes and your camping. Enjoy your trip. I’m headed back in May of 2019
