The Dry Tortugas National Park is a great place to go with kids that allows them to explore, learn about nature, and history all at the same time! There are many things to do on the island and in the water. You can snorkel the majestic and colorful reefs off the shores of the island, observe the park’s unique birds and wildlife, explore Fort Jefferson and the moat surrounding it, and much more. Your adventure begins as you cruise to Fort Jefferson Dry Tortugas National Park aboard the Yankee Freedom III, the fastest, largest, and newest high-speed Ferry in Key West. The boat’s galley serves snacks and soft drinks, and also sells souvenirs. As you enjoy the ride, keep an eye out for turtles and dolphins while you listen to one of our naturalists tell fun and fact filled legends of Fort Jefferson. You may even hear a tale or two about the pirates that sailed the very waters you will be sailing on your way to the Dry Tortugas…Arggh!!
