One of the greatest touring experiences that I have ever had. From start to finish this was truly an amazing visit to Dry Tortugas. The Yankee Freedom III made the day a memorable experience. Well worth the money.

We had an exceptional day. Well worth the trip. The early morning ferry departure was well organized. After boarding the ferry the breakfast and information keeps you busy for the ride out to the park. We were required to take our belongings off the ferry...More

Wow wow wow. Worth every minute of the bumpy passage. Beautiful park, with classic turquoise water. Due to the wind, the water was pretty hazy but we still had a ball. Four and a half hours is not enough time to explore this tiny park....More

We thoroughly enjoy making trips to National Parks and this was one off the beaten trail. It was thoroughly worth the long ferry ride, as the island is so pristine and beautiful! The crew of the Yankee Freedom III were great, especially Rhzee and Jordy,...More

We didn’t get back until 530P. There were people on our ferry that were switching to the other ferry. I don’t know how close they were cutting it. You should be able to call and ask if it is ever an issue.
