Another National Park off our list and it was a great location. Took the Ferry to the island with very knowledgeable guides. Learned the fascinating history of the fort and explored. Would definitely visit again.

Took a day trip here recently while in Key West. Nice boat ride over. Nice tourist attraction. You can enjoy snorkeling or relaxing on the beach. Nice historical location. No electricity or running water on the island.

There is no words to express how beautiful this park is. The water is perfect, the fort is awesome to walk around and the view is breathtaking. The trip in the Yankee Freedom was fantastic. We had an amazing time

A must when going to key west! Best beach in Florida. Private, quiet and clean. Crystal clear water. Amazing snorkeling. And surrounded by a massive fort in the middle of no where.

A trip to Dry Tortugas National Park and Fort Jefferson will help you appreciate what life was like 150 years ago. The fort was built to protect shipping in the Gulf of Mexico. It is a great place snorkel, explore marine life, and learn about...More

There is a seaplane that offers 4-hour roundtrips to Dry Tortugas National Park, the flight itself is worth the extra cost. The 10 am or 12 pm departures would be options depending on your time in port. Reserving in advance... More

They should be since the park has re-opened. Whether they're sold out or not is something you'll have to find out by calling them directly.

It is $329.00 per person for a four hour tour (40 minutes narrated flight each way) vs. the entire day if you ride the Ferry.
