We had a great time snorkeling, touring Fort Jefferson and just relaxing. The ride out and back was fine. The best part was having a sunny day when it rained much of the day in Key West.

A bit long of a boat ride and a bit pricey but a great way to kill a day with history and snorkeling around Fort Jefferson.

We rode the Yankee Freedom , a large ferry, for an all day experience. The crew provided breakfast & lunch in the price, as well as snorkeling equipment. It's a long day , so bring a change of clothes , hat & towels. several people on our boat had coolers & pop up tents to use on the beach . These were decent beaches around this civil war era fort, which is cool for history buffs, but the snorkeling was the highlight for me. Not sure we needed a full day out there, so I probably wouldn't recommend the all day trip on the ferry unless unless you are an avid snorkeler or beach bum. The fish around the fort's pilings were plentiful & varied & waters were calm .. Beautiful!

We took the seaplane, only way to go in my book. Very comfortable flight and landings. The view from the air adds so much to the experience. Fort Jefferson was a very interesting place to explore. The snorkeling around the fort is quite good, especially around the old pier pilings where we saw large tarpon, and Goliath Grouper! One of the highlights of our trip to the Keys.

The ocean was crystal clear. We loved snorkling and seeing Fort Jefferson. The FJ guides were very knowledgeable. I could have stayed there all day.
