There are two main activities on Dry Tortugas. Touring Fort Jefferson and snorkeling. Walking the fort gives insight into life in an area with little fresh water, hot temperatures, and prisoner and soldiers in close quarters. The snorkeling ranges from beginner to advance, with plenty...More

It does include a vest but most brought their own equipment or didn't snorkel as the line is long for equipment and your time there is at a premium. There are also warnings about crocodiles in the water but we didn't see... More

We thought about the seaplane, but cost was high. The ferry was great. Nice ride over and plenty of time to snorkel, sit on the beach and tour the fort. A plus with the ferry was food was provided, so no need to drag a... More
