Dry Tortugas - Remote Island Camping in the Keys

Few visitors to Key West take the ferry 70 miles to the Dry Tortugas National Park. Even fewer camp under the stars next to historic Fort Jefferson. Those who do are rewarded with world-class snorkeling, kayaking, wildlife watching and an island almost all to themselves.

Things To Do

The Natural Keys

If you've had enough of an overcrowded and weary world, the islands of the Lower Keys are the place for you. Here, you can snorkel or dive over the Looe Key coral reef, ride a bicycle through Key Deer country, or take a fishing adventure in the back country or troll the deep blue waters beyond the reef. At the end of the day, you can trade stories with family and friends at one of this area's tiki bars, RV parks, campgrounds, quaint resorts or licensed vacation homes. The Earthy fragrance of mangrove forests and wetlands is never far away. The Lower Keys begin where the Florida Keys island chain takes a graceful westerly turn toward the sunset, shortly after the famous Seven Mile Bridge. It is a quiet region of small resorts, down-home restaurants, single-family homes, untrammeled wildernesses and rich history.

Fishing

Want to hunt the skittish gray ghost of the flats, the bonefish? Come to the Keys. Feel like battling a reel-emptying blue marlin? Come to the Keys. Want to sit in a beach chair, sipping a cold cocktail while watching your bobber dance in the current? Come to the Keys. The tropical weather, nearby Gulf Stream and 120-mile-long arc of islands that make up the Florida Keys create one of the world’s best fishing environments. Off the Keys’ “outer” curve lies the Atlantic Ocean. Warm and shallow near shore, the ocean reaches depths of more than 600 feet just 11 miles offshore in the Upper Keys. Near Key West, 600-foot depths are just over five miles from shore. Travel another 12 to 15 miles south, and depths begin to approach 2,000 feet. Keys deep-sea fishing — ideally with a first-class local charter captain — means targeting some of the world’s greatest sportfish: sailfish, swordfish and marlin.

Underwater Music Festival

Explore part of the continental United States’ only living coral barrier reef Saturday, July 7, off the Florida Keys -- while rocking to a unique sub-sea concert dedicated to reef protection. It’s the annual Lower Keys Underwater Music Festival, and it’s unlike any other dive or snorkel experience on the planet. The “Only in the Keys” adventure takes place each year at Looe Key Reef, an area of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary about 6 miles south of Big Pine Key. Broadcast underwater by a Keys radio station, the music enhances the underwater experience for divers discovering the Keys’ fantastic realm of tropical fish, coral formations and other marine life. Some participants wear costumes, portraying everything from mermaids to rock stars, and a few even pretend to play underwater instruments sculpted by a Florida Keys artist. It’s all designed to encourage preservation of the Keys’ rich coral reef ecosystem.
