Dry Tortugas

Located about 70 miles from Key West, The Dry Tortugas are a cluster or islands made of sand and coral. This area is one of the premier marine sanctuaries in the world. Tropical fish, living coral and the whitest sand beaches. The islands and coral reefs make up the aquatic ecosystem of the Dry Tortugas National Park, the most remote of the U.S. national parks. Activities include scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, bird watching, walking the beaches and battlements of historic Fort Jefferson, swimming with giant loggerhead sea turtles, cruising the clear island waters, snorkeling rich patch reefs and coral gardens and observing the crew capture and tag a specimens of the docile nurse shark.

Discovered by the Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon in 1513, who called them Las Tortugas, which means The Turtles, due to the large number of sea turtles found there. The name Dry Tortugas later used to warn sailors that the islands contain no fresh water. Legends abound about pirate gold and sunken treasure. The area is known for its dangerous reefs and shoals and is the location of hundreds of shipwrecks.

Birdwatching is exceptional because the Dry Tortugas are a designated bird sanctuary. Noddy and Sooty Terns, Frigate birds, Boobies, Brown Pelicans, Double-Crested Cormorants and many more tropical species make this area their home.
