A trip to Key West is not complete without a trip to the Dry Tortugas. For most fun, grab your bathing suit and some friends and make it a full day of sailing to and touring this Civil War Fort...Fort Jefferson. The boat trip, on...More

Totally worth it but bring lot's of sun screen, snacks and drinks. The best snorkelling is on the old coal docks. We snorkeled around the fort but didn't see much until we got to the coal docks - and were exhausted/out of time by then.

We had been at the Park before and took the catamaran. This time we took the seaplane. I would definitely recommend going on the plane. It gives you more time to enjoy the history. The water is full of sea life for you to enjoy.

Book this trip! So worth the price and time. What makes this place so special is it's remoteness and history. The fort is huge and as soon as you get off the boat, everyone spreads out. It was quite peaceful and relaxing. Snorkeling was good,...More

This is a must do if visiting KeyWest! The boat trip out and back is long, but the fort is worth it. Definitely remember to take your Dramamine. Such a beautiful day! Snorkeling equipment is provided, as well as breakfast and lunch.

My son and I are seeing 20 National Parks this year so we took the ferry to Dry Tortugas. The crew was fabulous!!! Thank you :-)

Took the sea plane out in the afternoon, got there after the ferry had left, so there were a total of about 30 people on the island, including the park rangers. Great scenery, and the fort is huge and takes about an hour to explore....More

The Dry Tortugas is definitely worth visiting. We only did the day trip, which now I wish we would have camped there! The water is so blue and clear! Snorkeling is spectacular there! So much more colorful and more fish than Key West!
