“What a great trip!”

Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We took the ferry ride out to Dry Tortugas, had a great time exploring Ft Jefferson, and snorkling around the shores of the national park. Well worth the cost and time (it is an all day event).

I would suggest the boat ride out to Fort Jefferson to anyone! From exploring the fort, to snorkeling the blue waters, and marveling at the wildlife there is something for everyone!

The snorkeling here is incredible. They offer you breakfast and lunch as part of the yankee freedom ferry ride over. We have been going to the Keys for years and finally made it to the Dry Tortugas. Beautiful. Stunning.

We traveled on the Yankee Freedom 70 miles out to the Fort Jefferson Park. Breakfast and Lunch are provided in the air conditioned catamaran. We took the 20 minute guided tour of the fort (but they did offer a longer tour for the history buffs) and then self toured the rest. The highlight of the trip was the snorkeling - if you go make SURE and snorkel around the dock ruins around the North or South beach - I saw more variety and larger numbers of fish than I ever had snorkeling in the Caribbean. On the trip back the crew had snacks/drinks for sale. It was a fantastic trip and I would definitely do it again!

Dry Tortugas was one of the highlights of our family trip to Florida. We enjoyed exploring the fort, climbing up on top, and walking around with great views. We especially enjoyed snorkeling. The south coaling dock and the moat wall were the best snorkel spots for us. We saw some nice coral on the old piers and along the moat wall along with parrotfish, sergeant majors, and other colorful fish. The boat ride was long but smooth. The time on the island was a lot of fun.
