Key West Dry Tortugas

Jump to last reply

Hi, I topped an old thread, but then was afraid if someone saw it was from 2008 they would not go to the last reply, so I started a new thread.

We have rented a house on Cudjoe key for a month with another couple. We have been to the keys many times, starting in the late 70s. We love Bahia Honda, Looe Key, the beach at Fort Zachary Taylor and the easy laid back feeling of the Keys.

One thing we have not done is a trip to the Dry Tortugas. We had one booked, but it was canceled because of the rough weather. We have looked into taking the seaplane, but are really annoyed at the price. $295. per person for 1/2 day, but $515.00 per person for a whole day. I don't understand the difference in price. It should be the same amount in fuel for a round trip whether you stay 2 1/2 hours or 6 hours.

Since there are four maybe five adults going, I think we could rent a boat for $1000.00 for a day and go there ourselves. Does anyone know if that is possible, or does the park service not allow private boats to dock there.

Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.
