Dry Tortugas National Park (video)

Last weekend we returned to the Florida Keys in order to visit the Dry Tortugas National Park. This has been a bucket list destination of ours for a while now. The Yankee Freedom ferry has been having a special price since they returned to operation after hurricane Irma of only $99. That includes entrance to the park, breakfast and lunch.

Key West

We made our usual three-and-a-half hour drive to the “Conch Republic”, and we were surprised to see how much rubble is still on the side of the road, particularly in the Lower Keys. Key West, however, is 99% back to normal. We did the usual: a little bit of eating, a little bit of partying. We also visited Fort Zachary Taylor, which we had not seen before, and the freshly repainted Southernmost Point. We stayed at Boyd’s Campground, located in Stock Island, just one mile from Key West, five miles from Duval Street.

Southernmost Point
Fort Jefferson

Fort Jefferson is the main thing to see in the Dry Tortugas. I also attempted to do some snorkeling but the weather conditions were not optimal. It is a beautiful archipelago, and the color of the water is unbelievable.

I made two versions of the video:

The long one which also documents the trip to Key West and out stay there

…and a short one just with the Dry Tortugas trip
