Stow your everyday life and set sail for Dry Tortugas National Park! Located 70 miles west of Key West, this park is considered one of the most remote in the country. So remote in fact, the only way to get here is by boat or by seaplane. Come for a day or come to camp for the experience of a lifetime!
Dry Tortugas National Park in the Gulf of Mexico, a scant 100 miles north of Cuba, is at a confluence of ocean currents, maritime history, sea life, and birds. The shallow waters and seven small islands of this 100-square-mile park are a haven and nursery for an abundance of life. The park sits at the westernmost reach of the Florida Reef, the third largest reef in the world, and offers some of the most pristine marine environments in the United States.
The centerpiece of Dry Tortugas National Park is magnificent Fort Jefferson (pictured above). At 10 acres in size, this amazing engineering feat is the third-largest seacoast fortification the United States ever constructed. Its massive brown and red masonry walls rise in stark contrast to the calm turquoise seas and white sand it was built to defend.
