Fort Jefferson

When the question below was asked I emailed Seaplanes of Key West to see what was going on. This is their happy reply...

Hi Peter,

We resumed our flights to Dry Tortugas today. Damage from the hurricane is minimal and Key West is back to normal (as 'normal' as Key West gets!). Reservations are needed, we are selling out 1 to 2 days ahead.

I'm assuming that if the seaplanes are getting to the fort, then the two boats are, too . Hopefully things are looking up. What is the saying? "God willing and the creek (ocean) don't rise.

1. Re: Fort Jefferson

I would say the boats are operating also......there was very little damage to the fort or island. Saw lots of the boats out for the sunset cruise tonight and a cruise ship was in port also today.
