Upon boarding at 7:30 am from Key West, you will enjoy a continental breakfast of fresh fruit, freshly baked bagels, hot and cold cereal, boiled eggs, cheese, yogurt, juice and coffee.
En route to Dry Tortugas National Park our onboard guide will give you an orientation about the area and the national park’s surroundings. During your voyage to one of America’s most remote National Parks, you will enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Marquesa Islands, Boca Grande, and frequent turtle and dolphin sightings.
You can travel inside one of our comfortable air-conditioned cabins or outside on one of the observation decks. The Yankee Freedom III also features comfortable cushioned seats, four restrooms, three fresh water rinse showers (with warm water,) a full galley serving snacks, soft drinks, beer, wine, mixed drinks (on return trip only), film, and souvenirs. You will reach the National Park boundaries within 2 hours 10 minutes after leaving Key West harbor.
Once at Dry Tortugas National Park, you will disembark at Fort Jefferson and have the option of joining a 45-minute guided tour. Based on the number of guests who sign up for the tour, it is often offered at two different times in order to accommodate other activities while at the fort. You will enjoy a complimentary lunch buffet either before or after your tour depending on what time you choose. The scrumptious buffet consists of fresh deli meats, cheeses, (we even have peanut butter and jelly for the little ones) different types of salads, fresh fruit, chips, cookies, and soft drinks aboard the Yankee Freedom III in our air-conditioned salons.
Visitors can take advantage of the swimming, snorkeling, beach walking, exploring, birding, and the flora and fauna of this pristine island.
After reboarding in mid-afternoon we will depart, arriving back in Key West at approximately 5:15 p.m.
