Dry Tortugas Visit

29 March 2012 | Marathon

Day 1 & 2
After spending a long time on a mooring buoy in Marathon harbor, we finally headed out to visit the Dry Tortugas, about 100 nautical miles west of Marathon. The only way to visit the park is to take your own boat, get a ride on a small float plane, or take a ferry which runs every day. There is limited camping but otherwise all visitors come and go the same day. The ferry makes the trip from Key West in about 2 hours but for us to get there from Marathon it takes two days with a stop over night. We chose to anchor near Boca Grande Key.
On our second day the wind was light and we motor-sailed. We saw large, green sea turtles, dolphins, many sooty terns and several frigate birds. We also caught one fish, a king mackerel about 30 inches long. We cooked up some filets for dinner when we arrived at the anchorage at the park. While anchoring we noticed two very massive fish which we were told were jewfish under our boat. Thousands of sooty terns were nesting at the island nearby and kept up a constant cry, day and night. We understand that there are many, many other species that nest here, and we did see several during our visit.
