Dry Tortugas National Park

What Dry Tortugas National Park lacks in size, it makes up for in abundance of marine life. The park covers an area of just 160 sq km (100 sq m), but the seven small islands surrounded by aquamarine waters and coral reefs are home to colorful fish, spiny lobsters, large sea turtles, and nearly 300 species of tropical and migratory birds. Imposing Fort Jefferson--with its walls stretching around the perimeter of the island on which it sits--holds the park headquarters. The park's tropical-island setting makes it ideal for swimming, snorkeling, sea kayaking, saltwater fishing, and staring at the horizon from a sandy beach. The park sits just 113 km (70 mi) from Key West; access is limited to seaplane or boat. Customize your holiday with our United States trip planner to create an adventure that suits you.
