Dry Tortugas

My husband and I and another couple are coming to KW in 4 weeks for 4 nights. We are thinking of taking a day and going to Dry Tortugas. My husband loves to snorkel and the beach and fort there look like they'd make for a nice day trip. Anyone that has traveled there by ferry/boat recommend a company to use for the trip? We are looking to book ahead.

You really only have one choice for a boat unless you use a private charter. www.yankeefreedom.com

There is also a seaplane that goes to Fort Jefferson. It's more expensive but faster, and the flight out and back is gorgeous.

Thank you KeyLimey, I had glanced at the Yankee Freedom a while back. Just wanted to make sure there weren't other options (boat-wise) for getting out there.

If you can swing the seaplane - DO IT! We did a little while back and it was an amazing trip. Take a lunch/bottle or two of wine and enjoy.
