The trip to Dry Tourgas National Park was great. The fort was interesting and beautiful. Also the swimming was so nice. The only problem was that there was not enough time on the island to fully explore the fort.

A two and a half hour boat journey on a high speed catamaran takes you to Fort Jefferson. An island half-way to Cuba. This National Park is home to a colony of frigate birds (present in February anyway), which for a UK resident like myself...More

We took the Yankee Freedom III to the island and had a wonderful day. Even though it was chilly, our son snorkeled. The history of the island is fascinating We would recommend this visit whole-heartedly.

I can't say enough about this place. A great experience all the way around. You can take the Yankee Freedom ferry for a day trip and overnight camping, or a seaplane which is much more expensive. From a history perspective this was tops for me....More

I went on the Yankee Freedom III to the Dry Tortugas on my birthday this week. We had an amazing time!!! The cost seems high but is well worth it. It includes breakfast and lunch and entrance to the island which is a state park....More

We were there in December, so I cannot help you with the water temp in June. I’m sure it would be very warm though since it was fine in December. We brought our own mask and snorkel for my husband and myself. My daughter... More

Camping here is primitive. You may want to attempt camping closer to home first and see how you like it and give yourselves an idea of what to expect. There is nothing here. You can not purchase something you forgot.
