Accessibility at Dry Tortugas National Park
Dry Tortugas National Park strives to make the park as accessible as possible to everyone. For assistance in planning your trip and for information on accessibility at the park, see the helpful links and information below!
Fort Jefferson & Garden Key
The 19th century brick fort has three floors and wheelchairs are not able to get to the second and third tier. The fort is accessible only on the first tier on the grass surface or the brick walkway as well as the trail on the outside of the fort.
The park has charters like the Yankee Freedom, which has lifts at the dock to help people onto the boat in Key West. Visitors need to give advance notice to get it setup for passengers in need of accessibility. There is a ramp at the Fort Jefferson dock in which power chair/wheelchair can disembark from the boat. For additional information or to give advance notice, visitors can call 1 (800) 634-0939.
