We got a partial refund as all National Parks were free on the day of our trip. The boat is pretty crowded so arrive early if you want your choice of seats--inside or outside. My wife and I chose outside to enjoy the scenery. Even...More

Wow - where do I start. T\The fort is truly a must-see. Even though it is degrading the workmanship is so impressive. The beaches were beautiful. The trip to the Dry Tortugas was worth the money. The water was rather choppy on the ride to...More

Fills up fast, each plane carries 10 people, with only a few tours per day. Call as far ahead as you can.
