Backyards of Key West Podcast with Mark Baratto 72: Take a Trip to the Dry Tortugas with the Yankee Freedom III

In this episode, Mark Baratto sits down with Carol Hill, the owner of the Yankee Freedom III Ferry to the Dry Tortugas.

This episode was recorded at the beginning of 2020 and Carol has a little cold, but don’t worry, it wasn’t COVID-19 🙂

We talk about how Carol got into the business, all the hoops she needed to jump through to be the exclusive free to the Dry Tortugas, and how having a positive attitude always wins out.
