A must if you go to the Keys. We took the Freedom III Ferry and booked online. The staff and tour guide were amazing. The snorkeling for a novice like me was unbelievable. We saw coral and all kinds of fish and a sea urchin....More
It's a bit of a long ride out to the park and on a bad weather day I can see it being dicey. They called the seas moderate but we had no ill effects either out or in, nor did we see anyone on board...More
Dry Tortugas National Park is a national treasure and wonderful place to visit with friends and family. The Yankee Freedom ferry is well organized and clean with a friendly crew. Hollywood was a wonderful host.
The park is situated on a small island with a...More
By all means, if you are going to Key West, try to allow an entire day to visit this park. It is fairly expensive, but you are going on a large National Park boat 70 miles offshore and the price also includes a nice breakfast...More
We visited via the Key West Seaplane adventures company so got amazing views from the air. The waters are crystal clear allowing you to see sharks and sea turtles. At fort Jefferson you are free to explore in your own time and do see the...More
... pretty sure that paradise looks very much like this...! The ride over there is very enjoyable... the time spent there is enough to snorkel, swim and visit the fort... (the island is small!!)... and you are back in town right for the sunset! Can't...More
The Park itself is beautiful. Even with the all boats and planes visiting you can find a spot and be by yourself.
It is not worth the 2.5 hour boat ride out and back. It is a loooooong ride. If you chose to go,...More
This was a beautiful place to visit and would be ideal for camping. For a day trip though, it was a bit too short of a time onshore. the ride out to the park is about 1.5 hours (same with ride back) so be prepared...More
Our family is trying to visit all of the national parks, so off we went to Dry Tortugas. This was an amazing trip in every way -- the fort has great historic value, the water is amazingly beautiful, and the day was so much fun!...More
Very interesting fort ( Fort Jefferson) that you can explore at your own pace. A lot of history and artifacts in this National Park. Great snorkeling off the shore. $10 park admission. Bathrooms are available.
You can get here by ferry (4 hr round trip)...More

There are 2 options; seaplane round trip from Key West Intl Airport morning and afternoon flights or commercial cruise boat round trip daily from the Key West FL Marina, end of Duval Street, towards cruise ship docks. A pleasant and beautiful trip to the fort. Do a web search to get info for contacts and reservations. Contact the PIO at Key West Intl Airport and they can direct you to an tenant flying the trips daily. Enjoy.
The North Coaling Dock Ruins had thousands of Silver Side Fish being ran by a school of Tarpons, which we were swimming among. We also saw a sting ray and 2 juvenile Barracudas there. Both the North and South Coaling dock... More
The North Coaling Dock Ruins had thousands of Silver Side Fish being ran by a school of Tarpons, which we were swimming among. We also saw a sting ray and 2 juvenile Barracudas there. Both the North and South Coaling dock Ruins had beautiful coral and plant life as well. The best snorkeling we have ever done was at these two places.
