Sail Over to Dry Tortugas National Park

Make sure to plan a visit to the Dry Tortugas National Park while traveling to Florida. Unlike any other national park in the state, you can only reach the park by boat, ferry, or plane. Set in the Gulf of Mexico, off the southern tip of the state near Key West, the site preserves the seven Dry Tortugas islands and historic Fort Jefferson that awaits your arrival.

With over 60,000 visitors each year, Dry Tortugas National Park is a great destination for exploring Florida’s best features – the sun, sand, and water. Spend the day picnicking, bird watching, snorkeling, scuba diving, saltwater fishing, and kayaking in the crystal blue tropical waters. Explore the park’s 67,000 acres of coral reef, any diver or snorkeler’s dream destination. Swim with the nurse sharks, parrotfish, angelfish, moray eels, and all sorts of tropical fauna and marvel at the natural wonders of the Tortugas. Take a ranger-led tour of the 19th century-built Fort Jefferson, which was built to protect its eastern border.
