Best Adventure: Yankee Freedom to Dry Tortugas
Snorkel the clear waters away from it all as part of your day trip to Dry Tortugas National Park. In case you didn’t know, the national park made up of small islands is located some 70 miles west of Key West, accessible only by sea or air. The protected sanctuary makes for a lot of underwater activity and marine life to see, such as queen conchs, starfish, and tropical fish. You might even come across historic artifacts!
This is a popular day trip, so it’s crucial to book your place on the Dry Tortugas ferry ahead of time! Snorkeling gear and lunch is provided with the fare and it runs year-round (except for Christmas day). For more info on your day trip to Dry Tortugas and Fort Jefferson, check excursion details of the Dry Tortugas ferry.
