Cruise in spacious comfort to Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas National Park aboard the Yankee Freedom III, a high-speed ocean-going catamaran specifically designed for carrying passengers safely across the 70 miles of open water from Key West to the Park.
The Yankee Freedom III is 100’ long and 60’ wide, a broad and stable vessel certified to carry 250 passengers; however, to maximize the comfort of each guest, we limit each trip to 150 passengers. Our veteran captain and friendly crew will take you to one of the most unique and spectacular national parks in the United States: The Dry Tortugas National Park and Fort Jefferson, one of the top Key West attractions.
An all-inclusive day on a tropical paradise island! Almost 70 miles west of Key West, nestled among coral reefs and white sandy beaches, lie seven remote islands called the Dry Tortugas. Host to the enormous Ft. Jefferson, this once in a lifetime experience gives you the chance to see this historic relic located in what it is considered one of the best snorkeling locations in the world and admire a myriad of unusual birds, sea turtles and tropical fish. Breakfast & lunch included.
