About Dry Tortugas National Park:
A cluster of seven islands called the Dry Tortugas exists seventy miles (112.9 km) west of Key West, Florida. Composed of coral reefs, shoals and sand, the site was named Las Islas deTortugas (the Island of Turtles) by Ponce de León in 1513. Due to the lack of fresh water there, the word "dry" was added to the name. The islands, surrounded by 100 square miles of water, comprise Dry Tortugas National Park. The area is known for its varied profusion of birds and marine life - and for its legends of pirates and sunken treasure. To learn more about the Dry Tortugas National Park visit the website at:

Interpretive Virtual Tour Testimonialss
"This is the most innovative interpretive tool that I have seen. Never before have visitors been able to stand in the midst of the nation's only important Sooty Tern colony, explore Fort Jefferson's darkest secrets, or climb two hundred steps to the top of an active lighthouse. Our visitors love it."
