Egmont Key is one of Florida's beautiful historic landmarks that is only accessible by boat. It once served as a camp for captured Seminole Indians after the Third Seminole War and later Fort Dade was built on the island as the Spanish American War was encroaching. It now serves primarily as a wildlife refuge and escape for those looking not only to experience history but also to escape to its pristine beaches.
During this tour you will be able to go snorkeling near a sunken fort, take a guided tour around the island, go shelling, and walk the beautiful beach which has far fewer people than our land-access beaches. The tour will visit the light house (standing since 1858), provide a chance to see some of Egmont's many Gopher Tortoises, visit several historic forts with breathtaking panoramic views and see the many building ruins that were once the foundations of Fort Dade.
