Recommend Sail Itinerary
Sailing to the Dry Tortugas is ideally a fantastic five day adventure, leisurely tripping along the unexploited groups of Keys to get there and back.
Day 1: Departure by no later than 9:00 AM for a leisurely day sail along the various islands with our target being the Marquesas Keys where we’ll overnight. This leg takes approximately six hours. There’ll be plenty of time to swim, snorkel, fish and maybe wander a beach or two before we settle in for the night under the stars.
Day 2: A very early morning departure to make the 50 mile open water jump to the Dry Tortugas, this will take approximately five hours depending on conditions. Our arrival time will dictate what we might be able to squeeze in before securing our anchorage for the night. Our goal is to arrive early enough to take a tour of Fort Jefferson given by the park rangers in the early afternoon. Once the ferry and sea plane depart there will be only a few campers and perhaps a few other boats for the night.
Day 3: A day of leisure to explore the Fort and surrounding areas, fish, snorkel & relax. We’ll make a visit to the isolated island of Loggerhead Key. This is a very special treat as the tourists arriving by ferry or sea plane cannot visit this area, only authorized park operators may get the special day permit which allow us to take you there.
Day 4: On a four day itinerary this day is a 12 hour sail back to the marina. On a five day itinerary we make a leisurely sail to beautiful Boca Grande or Woman Key to enjoy the afternoon snorkeling, fishing and beach combing and another magical night under the stars.
Day 5: Morning departure for Key West where we’ll sail around the harbor before heading back to our marina. Our estimated arrival at the dock is 3:00pm.
• Includes chef prepared gourmet meals, water, assorted soft drinks, coffee & tea. Adult beverages may be brought aboard.
Due to the isolated location it is recommended that participants have a history of completing multi-day sailing trips, sleeping on a moving boat and not susceptible to seasickness. The only opportunity to jump ship and get a quick return to Key West is aboard the once a day ferry from the Dry Tortugas. The Dry Tortuga itinerary is wholly subject to favorable weather and ocean conditions during the scheduled dates. We reserve the right to create an alternate itinerary if the weather or oceans conditions before or during the trip are unfavorable to comfortably sail this route or find safe anchorage.
