so how many days are we allowed to anchor out in front of the fort.
If you're only going into a marina for a day or two, the (previously maligned) Galleon or Conch Harbor are both pretty nice and not unduly expensive. We've stayed at the Galleon a couple of times and like the facilities. The floating docks are easy to deal with, the harbor masters and their assistants are very accomodating, the laundry
, showers and heads are clean and well maintained, the bar is nice and no more costly than many others in KW and they do manage to keep the "Riff Raff" out so your family
and girls are less likely to be imposed upon by some misbegotten drunk at 0'dark 30 when/if they choose to go to the shoreside lavatory. Best, they have a great Cafe overlooking the marina with eggcellant ineggspensive breakfast's in the early morning and its a lovely spot to enjoy a cuppa French Roast and watch the sun come up andd ponder how fortunate one is to be there.
PS: There's no time limit in the Dry Tortugas. You can stay as long as you've got food
