Dry Tortugas National Park, Key West Reviews

  • This is a can't miss opportunity! Please make this a priority when you come to Key West. What an incredible adventure. Great snorkeling. Incredible birds. Would love to camp here. The Fort itself could be a few hour adventure. I only wish we had more time. The ferry is phenomenal. Great service from the staff and warm showers to rinse off before boarding. You get a lot for your money, and it's a once in a lifetime adventure. So glad we came here. We saw dolphins and turtles on the boat ride back and sharks around the fort, too! Not while snorkeling :)

  • Had an amazing camping trip. The rangers are beyond helpful. Everyone should get the chance to see this park. It is truly one of a kind! If you go make sure to stay a few nights camping. There is way more to take in than the ferry's 4 hour time limit allows for.

  • Well worth the hassle and expense of getting there. Exploring the fort is amazing and the water is great for snorkeling. I have yet to camp there, but it is an option and would give more time to see the place. And imagine being 70 miles from the nearest city. Key west is great, but I suggest taking the time to go the Dry Tortugas is you are there.

  • This place has something for everyone, and I would highly recommend taking a boat transfer to spend a full day here. For the history buff, take a tour of the Fort and learn about its multi-colored bricks and explore the dark hallways of this aging structure. For the adventurer, snorkel out over the coral reefs and look for the tropical aquatic life below. For the ultimate vacationer (AKA beach bums like me), relax on the white sand beaches enjoying the calm, turquoise waters. The boat ride to/from Key West is something like two hours each way. Absolutely worth the trip, but bring sun screen! Permits can be arranged to camp overnight.

  • Serene . Amazing colors. Good history. Decent snorkeling, don't get me wrong, the snorkeling for the average person will be great, but if you are going just for that, Florida has a TON of other reefs to offer at much cheaper and easier places to reach.
