This was an amazing sight. I enjoyed this US National Park immensely. The boat ride out there provides breakfast and lunch ( all you can eat). They open the cash bar on the ride back to Key West

After a long boat ride we disembarked at Fort Jefferson for a very interesting visit to the fort on the Dry Tortugas. The back story was quite interesting especially learning that the fort never shot a canon ball in defense of the fort.

Just a beautiful place, wonderful historic fort to tour... the beaches are fantastic. Snorkeling was actually disappointing in terms of fish to sea. It seems most of the really good sea life areas are out of reach to the ferry riding public. Still, the Yankee...More

This was our second visit to the park. We traveled out on the catamaran (2h 15 to 2h 30 each way). The trip out was a bit bumpy but the trip back was just delightful. The fort is beautiful. The two hours on shore allows...More

Definitely the best beach near Key West. The fort is full of history and the beach is sandy with beautiful snorkeling, even on a rough day. Apparently summer is the best time to go, as the water is smooth on the boat ride in and...More

We took a flight first thing to the park and enjoyed snorkeling and touring the fort. We were there in March so recommend at least a wet suit top. Pretty clear water and lots of fish to see. Be sure to listen to information about...More

This is really a review of the service and staff on the boat that takes you to the park. They do a great job and provide excellent service. On the way over they mostly provide breakfast. But at the Park they support snorkeling, touring, lunch...More

The boat trip was over two hours. The "Cruise Director" named Hollywood (who may have actually been Kato Kaelin), spoke so much about getting seasick that most people were nauseous before getting on the boat. Waves were minimal- check the forecast yourself. The crew was...More

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

I absolutely think it is worth it, but I would splurge for the half day sea plane trip rather than the ferry. It's only a half day, and it was a great way to spend the day. Yes, it is a little pricy, but I think it was well... More
