Dry Tortugas

What are the
Dry Tortugas?

The Dry Tortugas National Park is one of the most amazing places on earth. Situated 70 miles from Key West, it is secluded from most of the pressures of human development. The water is crystal clear and the coral reefs are pristine. Some of the coral structures rise 50ft from the bottom straight up. Fish life is everywhere and there are species you will only find inside the park. Finz has one of the few permits to be able to legally dive inside the National Park, and will safely take you and your dive buddies to dive sites you could never forget.

A trip to the Dry Tortugas National Park with Finz starts early at the shop. Outfitted with Snorkel or Dive equipment we depart on our 2 hour boat ride. You can watch the many mangrove islands and spot wildlife such as dolphins and turtles from the comfort of our bean bag chairs. We typically arrive to Garden Key over an hour before the National Park Ferry. This gives us time on the island without 200 tourists. 

After the tour we depart Garden Key and head for amazing snorkel or dive sites in the park. Since the trip is private we customize the itinerary and sites to match your groups preferences. We can visit Loggerhead Key and its lighthouse and have lunch on the beach, head out to Texas Rock for a scuba dive, or go back in time and explore a ship wreck from the early 1900’s. On the way home our captain will be on the lookout for more wildlife and will get you back to shore safely around 5pm. Just in time for Happy Hour at the restaurant near our shop.

Our Dry Tortugas National Park trip equally lends itself to both scuba diving and snorkeling. The shallow waters around Garden Key and Loggerhead Key are perfect for those that are both beginner or advanced snorkelers. Finz Dry Tortugas trip is the only day trip that will visit Loggerhead Key and its lighthouse.
The windjammer wreck is possibly the most beautiful shipwreck in the U.S. and is only accessible from a private boat or Finz Tortugas trip. Why limit yourself to only the 1 percent of the National Park that is above the water. With Finz you can explore more!

Finz Dry Tortugas charters are always private and can accommodate up to 6 guests on our boats. This charter typically lasts 10 hours and is an all day adventure. Lunch is provided as well as snacks and water. It is an unforgettable experience that you will cherish for a lifetime.

The Dry Tortugas National Park Ferry is often sold out. Call us today to reserve a spot on our private tour.

Places to Go

Bush Key

Visiting Dry Tortugas National Park during the late fall and early winter season affords a special opportunity to explore a rare undeveloped, subtropical island known as “Bush Key”. During the breeding season, this small island, only 16 acres in size, is home to birds not found elsewhere in the continental United States.

Garden Key

Garden Key is the second largest island in the Dry Tortugas, about 14 acres in size, and has had the most human impact. Located on Garden Key is historic Fort Jefferson, one of the nation’s largest 19th century forts and a central cultural feature of Dry Tortugas National Park.

Loggerhead Key

The largest island in the Dry Tortugas, Loggerhead Key is a site of shipwrecks, a significant lighthouse installation, and where the historic Carnegie Laboratory for Marine Ecology once stood. Named for its abundance of loggerhead sea turtles, Loggerhead Key has long been a haven for wildlife.

Swimming Beaches

Dry Tortugas National Park is situated at the southwest corner of the Florida Keys reef system, the third largest in the world. Due to the remote location, and easterly flowing gulf current just south of the park, you are sure to discover a much greater abundance of marine life and often much larger versions than anywhere else in the Florida Keys.
