An adventure to the Dry Tortugas has never been more fun! Our Private Yacht to Dry Tortugas trip offers a chance for you to spend 3, 4 or 5 nights under the stars on a trip unlike any other. This beautiful yacht offers 1400 sq ft of living area, 2 large bedrooms with private bathrooms in each, a huge salon with projection screen for watching movies, a complete galley, super comfortable loungers on the bow and topside, and ice cold air conditioning throughout. This package also includes gourmet meals, bottled waters, coffee, tea, and assorted soft drinks. You may also bring aboard adult beverages of your choice.
Day 1 - We depart Key West no later than 9am. Our target destination for this day is to reach the Marquesas Keys where we will stay overnight during the first day. This area is widespread with abundant reefs and mangroves to explore. There will be plenty of time for fishing, snorkeling, and enjoying beaches before dinner, watching the stars come out, and then spending night one under the stars there.
Day 2 - Will be an early morning departure heading for our Dry Tortugas destination on Garden Key. You may wish to take the guided tour of Ft. Jefferson provided by the park ranger in the afternoon. By later in the afternoon the ferry traffic and seaplane visitors will have gone, leaving the island occupied by only a few campers, the park ranger, and possibly a few other anchored boaters. We are allowed to stay on the Fort until 30 minutes past sunset so that is absolutely glorious!
Day 3 - As we awaken from another starry night slumber, day 3 is a casual day at Garden Key as well as a visit over to Loggerhead Key which is special since there are particular permits needed to visit that island. Ferry and Seaplane guests are limited to just Garden Key and the fort. Get more tan, fish in the turquoise waters, snorkel the surrounding reef systems, or just relax and enjoy being on a deserted island oasis for the day!
Day 4 - This day will be spent on stops at other scenic islands such as Boca Grande or Woman Key within the Key West National Wildlife Refuge for one last day of fun, fishing, snorkeling, beach combing, and of course your final fantastic night under the stars.
Day 5 (or the last day of your tour arrangement) - We depart in the morning, heading back to Key West. ETA back into Key West is 3:00PM. This is an amazing opportunity to do what few people get a chance to do in their lifetimes! Come and spend almost a week on our gorgeous 50 ft motor yacht and enjoy paradise for days, literally!
The above is an example itinerary and can be altered by either personal request, if you'd like to do some things differently, or by weather conditions. 5 Night charters will include a 6th day for travel time heading back to Key West's Historic Seaport.
