Dry Tortugas, fort has fascinating history and the Parks Rangers were glad to tell us about it. The snorkeling was just great near the old pier pilings, lots of wildlifte including fairly large and small fish, barracudas, gobies, angel fish, sgt majors and loads more. Some sponges, lots of gorgonias. Saw a live Conch, quite large. Corals not so great.
Kids that do the junior ranger booklet at the Dry Tortugas ranger office get free ice cream on the ship.
Ship comfortable (didn't feel crowded even though it was sold out), food fine, nice to have the mulitple bathrooms and fresh water showers. We used our own snorkle gear. Loading and unloading ship quick and efficient. Nice pointers on Key West surroundings leaving the dock and heading to the Tortugas including local lore and island names.
Captain very pleasant and helpful and our kids loved his dog too!
Great day, our kids #1 favorite "thing to do" for their Key West bucket list. We have teens and pre-teens. Beaches nice for younger kids too.
If you are using this as transportation to go camping, know you MUST already have camp reservations (only 6 campsites that fill up 10-11 months in advance).
