        If you ever get the chance, cruising to the Dry Tortugas is a great adventure, especially if you like history and anchoring in unique locations. It is a full-day cruise from Key West so make sure you have a good weather window both ways. There are also no services so also make sure you have enough fuel, water and supplies. We found holding to be good in a sandy bottom. Depending on the day, the anchorage can get crowded. We have been there with probably 15+ boats and also all by ourselves a few days later once the weather improved. The history of Fort Jefferson is fascinating and well worth the trip out there – a few tidbits, it is considered the 'Manhatten Project' of the 1800s and all the brick came from New England. Here is a link to National Park Services website regarding anchoring and moorings:: https://www.nps.gov/drto/planyourvisit/drtoboatpermitsandmooringbuoys.htm
