Love it - Great Snorkeling

Great place to snorkel, but you are on your own. Guide service is focused on the fort which is amaxing, but when get in the water have a buddy. No one is looking out for you. Lots of artifacts, some fish.

Remote island campground with beautiful seas and skies

It will take some planning to get here, but it’s worth it. You’ll need a boat, your own or the ferry service, and as a result it will be one of the most expensive camping trips you’ll ever take. There’s even more expensive flight service to the island, but not for campers. If you’re camping, you’ll…

  • The campground is located in the treed area to the left of the fort in this photo. You can snorkel around much of the island, walking in from the beach
  • The 4 composting toilets are open unless the ferry is in port.

Location

Dry Tortugas National Park is located in Florida

Directions

The actual Tortugas islands are only accessible by boat or plane. The most common way to get out here is via the Yankee Freedom or sea plane. The flights aboard the seaplanes are slightly more expensive and have very limited availability. The ferry departs daily at 8AM from Key West and returns at 5PM.

About This Campground

The best way to truly experience the islands of the Dry Tortugas is by actually spending a night out in that island wilderness. Like most national parks, visitors to the Dry Tortugas have the option of spending a few nights out on their own. The islands feel like they are truly in the "middle of nowhere," as you are about 70 miles from civilization.

Dry Tortugas Camping is highly limited. There is not enough space out on the islands to hold an unlimited amount of campers. Because of this, the ferry that travels to the Dry Tortugas only transports ten campers per day. It is a good idea to plan well in advance due to the low number of available spaces. Furthermore, each camper can only transport a total of 60-70 pounds. This does not include the containers of water campers will need to bring.
