In addition, tour participants can enjoy snorkeling where all gear and equipment is provided. The 9.5 hour tour includes delicious breakfast and a buffet style lunch as well.
“The Yankee Freedom tour is a fun tour for tourists visiting the Key West because it is a whole day of fun exploring the Dry Tortugas National Park while also enjoying other fun activities like snorkeling. It is must do for any tourist that visits the region; no wonder it’s one of our most popular Featured Tours,” says Chris Gardner of Best on Key West.
The Key West region is particularly popular for its snorkeling and Key West fishing experiences. The Yankee Freedom tour is an excellent opportunity to enjoy snorkeling and get up close and personal with a variety of tropical sea wildlife unlikely to be seen anywhere else in the world. For those not keen on snorkeling or looking for more, the tour organizers encourage a swim from the beach to the reef. For tourists interested in experiencing the history of Dry Tortugas, experienced and knowledgeable guides conduct tours of Fort Jefferson and talk about the history of the Garden Key brick structure that once acted as a US military prison.
“The Key West really offers plenty of unique tourist activities and the Yankee Freedom Tour is one of the best. We definitely recommend it,” concludes Gardner.
The Yankee Freedom II is a giant catamaran designed to carry up to 250 passengers but carries only 120 for any trip to ensure maximum comfort.
