A trip that will bring us back to the Keys all by itself

Fort Jefferson and Garden Key are beautiful. Without snorkeling, we felt like we didn't have enough time though you are on site for about 4 1/4 hours. You get a breakfast as you... read more

Fort Jefferson and Garden Key are beautiful. Without snorkeling, we felt like we didn't have enough time though you are on site for about 4 1/4 hours. You get a breakfast as you board, which was bagels, ham, eggs-more than expected. Boat is comfortable as it seats 250, but only allowed a max of 175 for trips. Ryan does a... More

This is a MUST DO activity in Key West. The Yankee Freedom Crew is awesome. They are nice, knowledgeable and hard working. Be sure to take the tour and snorkel. Plan your day to allow both. Also bring cards, games or a book for the boat. Take a seat on the deck for the arrival to Dry Tortugas. It is... More

The fort is amazing with multiple beaches for great snorkeling. The boat was comfortable and the crew was great. Especially our tour guide "Hollywood". He gave and especially information lecture about Fort Jefferson and the Dry Tortugas.

Whenever you book a day trip by sea to a remote island there is always a little hesitation as to what is to come. On this trip I too had some concerns partly based on possible weather and some other reviews here on Trip Advisor, thankfully all of those doubts were completely shattered with our day with the crew of...

We booked our trip about 9 months in advance, as we planned to go out camping on the Dry Tortugas for 3 nights. Our booking experience was smooth, when we got to the dock with our camping gear we were met by a professional crew who loaded our gear on board. Our boat ride out was smooth and narrated by...

Worst time we ever had in Key West (and this is our 10th visit). We finally booked the Yankee Freedom to the Dry Tortugas. It is probably a great thing to do on a calm day. We have roughly 20 - 25 mph winds, and 3 to 6 feet waves. We hit a real rough area for about 30 -... More

Be ready for a long day, but it's well worth it. The staff is excellent. If you have Hollywood for a tour guide you won't be disappointed. Take the long tour with him and you will learn a lot of history and reason as to why this fort is in the middle of nowhere. The boat ride is about 2.5... More

We had a Amazing time at Ft. Jefferson . You won't be disappointed. The trip on the ferry was a little over two hours but if you don't care about being in the ocean for that long you'll enjoy it. We snorkel around the fort and they have sandwiches and fruit for lunch. It's beautiful!!!!! The water is crystal clear... More

The crew was very efficient. The food offered on the breakfast and lunch buffet was all very fresh and satisfying. The boat was clean and we would definitely come back next year and take it again to the Dry Tortugas.
