On Jan. 29, at 7:30 am we were down on the waterfront for the trip to Dry Tortugas National Park.

 The park is fairly small but very interesting. The boat trip was fun and really quick as the distance is about 70 miles and we got there in just over two hours. The boat feeds breakfast and lunch and provides drinking water for the trip. They also give a guided tour of the island.
