Dry Tortugas National Park Ferry
The Yankee Freedom II takes visitors from Key West to Dry Tortugas National Park. The 70-mile excursion aboard this high-speed-catamaran takes a little more than two hours, and guests have about four hours to enjoy Fort Jefferson and the Dry Tortugas beaches. Some visitors decide to spend the night, but only a visitor center and bookshop exist, so camping supplies are necessary. Dry Tortugas has been categorized as having some of the best offshore snorkeling in North America. Snorkeling gear is provided upon arrival.
