On day one of our weeklong visit to Key West, we ventured onboard the Yankee American catamaran and sailed over to Fort Jefferson/Dry Tortugas National Park...and it was well worth visiting. Yes it takes 2-1/2 hours to get there (and back), but the ride is scenic and the visit to the island and the fort make it all worthwhile. We were caught up in the history of the fort, why it was out there all by its lonesome on a small sand dune of an island, and the folks who ran the trip were excellent sources of local knowledge.
