Full-day trip from Key West to the Dry Tortugas which includes breakfast, lunch, and snorkeling
Traveling to Ft. Jefferson by water is a full-day happening that begins with a 7:15 a.m. check-in at a conveniently located Old Town marina. Reservations are required and should be made well in advance and can only be made directly with the ferry company “Yankee Freedom”. We no longer handle reservations for them.
You will need to bring towels & sun protection and your sense of adventure. Otherwise, this large ocean-going vessel will supply all the amenities imaginable.
Included with Dry Tortugas ferry trip:
A simple continental breakfast is available at boarding and a bountiful picnic lunch is served at the fort. All snorkel gear is provided and you’ll also enjoy a fascinating guided tour led by a historian/naturalist. The boat has spacious observation/sundecks and comfortable restrooms that are easily accessed.
The trip over and back is a bit over two hours each way, giving you a leisurely 4 to 5 hours to explore the fort, relax on the sandy white beach, and snorkel the area.
