Dry Tortugas

The Dry Tortugas are a small group of islands, located in the Gulf of Mexico at the end of the Florida Keys, about 67 miles west of Key West.

“Tortugas” means turtles in Spanish, the name “Dry” was given to the island to indicate to other mariners that the land mass lacked fresh water,.
