Dry Tortugas National Park, Key West Reviews - Write a Review

  • Camped at Fort Jefferson for two nights and three days, fishing for dinner and kayaking to submerged keys and shipwrecks. Made good friends among the small group of primitive campers. At night you can see the Milky Way and a trillion stars. Once the waters calm down after the 2017 hurricane season, snorkeling will get back to normal and the lighthouse repairs will be completed!

  • Love it here. Took the seaplane--worth it and SO quiet here! (Arrived after ferry left for the day. ) Saw turtles, sharks, and shipwreck from the air. Great snorkeling. So full of beauty and history.

  • Absolutely awesome park. This was on the top of my list to visit as far as national parks go. Not the best by any means but for it's remoteness and uniqueness. Lots to do here. Fort Jefferson is incredible. What a sight! Lots of history here and almost full access to the whole place. Then there is the picture perfect water around it. The best I've ever seen. Best snorkeling anywhere. Unfortunately was not able to do to much due to high winds reducing visibility. Took the ferry over. Down side is it takes 5 hrs round trip to get there. With only about 4 hrs of free time on the island it's hardly enough time to see and do it all. Plenty of reasons to go back. Defintiely would like to do the seaplane out but that is pricey. If ever in Key West, this is a must go! Enjoy!

  • Definitely worth the time and money to get out and see... My 14 year old daughter and I took a trip to it and we had a great time. I would go back again, but Camp, just so I can see what the Stars looked like out in the middle of the ocean at night.

  • Sorry I've Never been, but I got on line & read about it for hours. I will not miss it next year. I saw it live on line. The beautiful is the only one of it's kind in the world
