The park is only accessible by boat or seaplane, but there is a daily ferry that runs between Dry Tortugas National Park and Key West.
There are plenty of great reasons to visit Dry Tortugas National Park, including white sand beaches, crystal clear water, and beautiful coral reefs. Plus the largest island is home to the historic Fort Jefferson, a massive fortress built during the 19th century to protect the shipping channel between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico.
And spending a night on the remote Dry Tortugas is a dream come true for those that love adventure. Imagine sleeping under the starry skies on a remote desert island in the Caribbean! There are only 8 campsites in the National Park so to secure one you’ll need to begin planning months in advance.
