If you love history and the great outdoors, embark on an adventure like none other on board the Yankee Freedom.
Just 70 miles west of Key West, the Dry Tortugas is a collection of secluded islands that boast a military fort, a national park, camping grounds, sandy beaches, crystal waters, coral reefs, fishing, snorkeling and so much more. See the historic Fort Jefferson and the place where Dr. Samuel Mudd was held prisoner due to his involvement in the assassination of President Lincoln. Come face to face with colorful fish and marine species that live on the coral reef. Spend the afternoon exploring the island, bird watching, having a picnic on the beach or soaking in the sun, gather the family and spend the weekend camping. The Dry Tortugas offers extraordinary experiences for people of all ages.
There’s no better way to get to The Dry Tortugas than on board the Yankee Freedom which has been ferrying guests for more than 30 years.
