To get here, need a boat or plane. I guess you can kayak out over 2 days from Key West. The Dry Tortugas have no water. Fort Jefferson is an interesting civil war era fort. Can view most of it and walk around the whole...More

The most remote of our National Parks. We arrived via the Yankee Freedom boat. The history of the fort is interesting but very limited. The island is very scenic and there's excellent bird watching and snorkeling. The beaches are clean and the water it crystal...More
