Return Details

Returns to original departure point
This 10-hour journey departs from Key West on board the Yankee Freedom III, a luxurious, state-of-the-art, high-speed catamaran that ferries passengers from Key West to Dry Tortugas and Fort Jefferson National Park. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and take in the scenic beauty while cruising 70 miles off the coast through the Gulf of Mexico, listening to the naturalist tour guide describe the surroundings and the history of the national park.

Dry Tortugas National Park is located inside Fort Jefferson, one of the largest coastal forts ever built. This seven-island cluster is comprised of coral reefs and sand — and famous for its bird and marine life, as well as legends of pirates and sunken gold. 

This tour includes a variety of exciting activities and amazing scenery while providing a sense of history. Begin with a 45-minute tour of the fort, then wander the beach looking for seashells and watching tropical birds swooping through the air. Try a bit of swimming or snorkeling around the coral reef, looking for dolphins and sea turtles in the warm, tropical water. Visitors agree, this is the best place for snorkeling in the Florida Keys.

Time for a break? Enjoy a delicious buffet lunch on board the boat or along the shore.

Spend any remaining time sightseeing or wandering the island, then reboard the boat mid-afternoon and enjoy the trip back to Key West. Relax on the deck with a refreshing beverage from one of the onboard bars (own expense) and soak up the remaining rays of the sun — a perfect ending to a perfect day of outdoor fun and adventure.

Experience of a life time

It’s considered a bucket list item for so many of us and let me tell you, it was worth it. The fort is magnificent and the island is just so beautiful so serene, it’s a beauty I had never seen before. The staff and crew at the Yankee freedom boat are the nicest people you will meet. This day trip was phenomenal. Food was great and so was the ride.

Great trip! The water was beautiful and the snorkeling was amazing! Seeing the fort was also really cool and learning about the history. DO bring bug spray! We got a lot of mesquite bites!

Incredible beauty and history all in one

Incredible beauty. This was the highlight of our trip to the Florida Keys. We took the ferry, which is 2.5 hours each way. We would have liked to spend more time on the island. The food provided wasn’t great. If you want something good, I suggest bringing your own food and drink. The fort is huge. Our tour guide was very interesting and did a great job. We snorkeled near the fort. We did see a few fish. It was cool to see the forts moat wall underwater. The water is beautiful!

The fort is huge. The water is amazing. It’s so beautiful out there. The ferry ride was really long. If I went again, I would think about taking the sea plane.

What a great day. Everything was perfect....except for the weather. "Hollywood" is a great tour guide and had so much knowledge about the fort and island. We just wish there was more time we could spend out there, without having to do a camping trip.
