Sea Turtle, the Keys are great to do. However, you will find windy conditions much of the time. Be prepared to wait out some weather. It will make you appreciate the cruising area of Pine Island Sound and Charlotte Harbor.

Yeah I know its blasphemy........I'd likely opt for the fast cat excursion out there. Depending on the water temp and your personal comfort temp for snorkeling. I would likely skip it altogether,unless its on your "list" to go to the Tortugas. Other than being Mudd's exile it was a pretty historically bland fort.

Probably the biggest historical significance of Ft. Jefferson is that it was obsolete before being completed. Rifling in cannon barrels made forts of its kind obsolete. When Fort Pulaski was breached by the new cannons, there was no use to complete Fort Jefferson. Any fort could be defeated.
