Explore a 19th Century Fort and snorkel in the crystal clear waters filled with sea creatures.

Dry Tortugas National Park is located in the Gulf of Mexico, 70 miles west of Key West, Florida. This 100-square mile park is mostly open water and is accessible by seaplane or boat. It comprises 7 islands and protected coral reefs. Garden Key is home to white sand beaches, clear blue water, and the 19th-century Fort Jefferson. Loggerhead Key features a lighthouse and sea turtles. On nearby Loggerhead Reef, the Windjammer Wreck, the remains of an 1875 ship, is a popular dive site. Bush Key is a nesting site for seabirds like sooty terns.

Garden Key is the second-largest island in the park and has the best swimming areas for inexperienced swimmers and amateur snorkelers. On this island, you can also camp and explore the visitor center. Camping is a great way to spend your time at Dry Tortugas because you'll get to see some brilliant night skies. Fishing is another great activity. Please note that you must have a Florida saltwater fishing license to fish here and only circle hooks can be used, not traditional J hooks. Enjoy a trip to this coastal paradise in the Gulf of Mexico.
