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

This is a must see if you are visiting Key West. If you take the morning sea plane you will arrive before the ferry (and all the people on it). The fort is fun to explorer and the water is breathtaking.

We took a seaplane out to the park and snorkeled and toured Fort Jefferson. Amazing trip and the most desolate military post I've ever seen firsthand. Snorkel close to the fort moat walls for the best sea life.

We were there in early May, and saw no jellyfish through the entire trip, in the Keys or at the Dry Tortugas.
