One of the best park experiences we've ever had. The fort is small and so are the beach areas, but the snorkeling is amazing and the history behind this place is very interesting. We took the Yankee Freedom II out and back in but next time might opt for the sea plane (despite costing much more) to enjoy more time here.

The Yankee Freedom Ferry was a very nice Ferry to get us to Dry Tortuga. They provided transportation, Breakfast and Lunch and a 20 min mini tour and an hour long tour of the Fort. A great way to learn some history. However, if you are going to Dry Tortuga for the beautiful waters and snorkeling, realize you will only have a very short time for this activity. It is a 2 1/2 hour ride there and 2 1/2 hour ride back and the nice tour through the fort lasted an hour.

Great snorkeling around the walls of the fort! The views from the top are amazing and the park service keeps the area clean! A lot of history! Definitely come by plane on KW Airtours!

I have been there twice. I took my son this last time..he loved the boat ride there and back. He didn't enjoy the actual snorkeling because they didn't fit him right and the mask kept filling with water. We tried two different masks. I then gave him mine and low and behold it fit. They need to be a little more kid friendly.

Even more brutally hot than Key West, but the history is worth it. Take the day! It is a WONDERFUL time capsule into 19th century history, and the scenery (even for those who choose not to snorkel) is breathtaking.
