Absolutely amazing day trip. Boat ride is great with a fantastic staff and the fort itself is full of history. Not sure if the panoramic photo of the whole fort will come out with this but its breathtaking from the top level.
Fort Jefferson is huge and the history is interesting but the main attraction is the snorkeling. It is the world's only under water national park. It does take a long ferry trip to get there. (2.5 hours)
Really cool fort in beautiful location. Recommend taking the seaplane to access it... super fun and scenic flight.
If you're in Key West, get out here and be a small percentage of humans to make it to this island. A ton of cool history, birds, and sea life. Seeing a massive, brick fort on a tiny sand island in the middle of the gulf (especially from a plane) was amazing. The ferry is cheaper, but takes about three times as long to get out there.
Phenomenal place. Water was pristine and beautiful. The fort was amazing and full of beauty.
