Dry Tortugas Fishing

Located just 70 miles to the West of Key West is the Dry Tortugas National Park also called Fort Jefferson. This area is Jurassic Park for many species of fish. Everything seems to be bigger in the Dry Tortugas.

The Dry Tortugas are a National Park with many rules and no take zones. I have one of 11 permits that allow me to legally fish in these zones with customers.

About the fishing

Grouper and snapper fishing is the best in the state of Florida. Tuna fishing in the spring for black fin tuna behind the shrimp boats is a blast. King fishing is outstanding with live bait and Huge fish up to 65 lbs. Permit and amberjack fishing on the loaded wrecks with huge barracudas we catch on super light tackle. Its not hard to catch a nice bag limit of quality fish in the Dry Tortugas National Park.

Dry Tortugas Charters I Offer

I offer two different charter experiences out to the Dry Tortugas trying to cater to the vast needs of my clients. The Rates are the same. I just need to know what you want. Below are the two options.

The boat I use is a 32ft Yellowfin Center Console. She cruises at 40 mph and gets to the Dry Tortugas in less than 2 hours. Fast safe and comfortable.

Extra Notes

Venturing out to the Dry Tortugas is a long day on a boat for many not used to it. I will not go if the weather is not nice. Do not book this trip if long boat trips bother you.

When fishing the Dry Tortugas there are certain areas that are self imposed catch and release only. Please respect that.

Bring a Hat, lots of sunscreen lotion, whatever you want to drink, sunglasses and towels. Cameras are a good idea too. Its pretty out there.
