By far the best way to get to and from the park is by sea plane. The company provides coolers, ice, water, and soft drinks; as well as fins, mask and snorkel. Great pilot that gives commentary on the flight. Views are spectacular. Great snorkeling....More

We took the first flight out on the sea plane. The pilot was very informative and pointed out all the sites from the sky. Flying on the sea plane was super fun!

My husband and I saw a photo of Dry Tortugas a few years ago and immediately put it on our bucket list. It did not disappoint! The boat ride out was relaxing, the tour of the fort our guide, Hollywood, gave was so informative and...More

Who can afford this? $175 per person! Omg. Great place to visit, if you've got lots of money. And, there's no alternative way to visit we could find besides the ferry.

We took a day trip to Fort Jefferson, principally to snorkel. The trip was good, the crew excellent, the food they served good as well. It's just that a day is too little time. We spent our day snorkeling around the outside of the fort,...More

The fort is an amazing piece of history and worth going to see on its own. But in addition, the snorkeling is fantastic, and we saw lobster, rays and barracuda in addition to a few thousand smaller fish. Finally, the views from the plane showed...More

Camping here is primitive. You may want to attempt camping closer to home first and see how you like it and give yourselves an idea of what to expect. There is nothing here. You can not purchase something you forgot.
