About Our Boat...
Cruise in spacious comfort aboard The Fort Jefferson Ferry, the fastest, largest and most state-of-the-art vessel ferrying passengers to Fort Jefferson Dry Tortugas National Park. The Fort Jefferson Ferry is a high-speed boat certified to carry 250 passengers; however, to maximize the comfort of each guest, we limit each trip to 100 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. Almost 70 miles west of Key West, nestled among coral reefs, and white sandy beaches, lie seven remote islands called the Dry Tortugas. Unforgettable adventures await you on this most memorable trip. En route to Dry Tortugas National Park our onboard naturalist will give you an orientation about the area and the national park's surroundings. During your voyage, you will enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Marquesa Islands, Boca Grande, have an opportunity to see turtles and dolphins, and listen to pirate legends. You can travel inside the main cabin in air-conditioned comfort or outside on one of the observation decks. The Fort Jefferson Ferry also features comfortable cushioned seats, three restrooms, fresh water rinse shower, full galley serving snacks, soft drinks, beer, wine, mixed drinks (on return trip only), film, and souvenirs. Rest assured, our crew will be there to make your adventure fun, comfortable and safe. Come experience the difference... and have a great time on the water.
