Some of our favorite areas in the Florida Keys can be found roughly 60 miles west of Key West.

The Dry Tortugas National Park is a tropical group of small islands that make up the bottom part of the Florida Keys.

For anglers and boaters, these islands provide a wonderful escape into untouched natural beauty that’s within close proximity of Key West.

While fishing is prohibited within the National Park, surrounding fishable waters are plentiful with a variety of pelagic and reef dwelling fish species.

Recently, our team with Half Full sportfishing met guests in Key West for a Dry Tortugas Fishing excursion West of Key West in the Dry Tortugas.

After a day of exploring in and around Fort Jefferson and the surrounding islands, our team enjoyed some awesome fishing, diving, and freediving in the islands that make up the Tortugas and Marquesas island chains at the end of the Florida Keys.

After a few fun-filled days in the Tortugas, we dropped our guests back off in Key West and made it back home to Key Colony with a solid catch of Mahi.

Thinking about an adventure to the Dry Tortugas?

The Half Full loves to show discerning anglers an unforgettable experience on the waters off of Key West and the Florida Keys.

Give Captain James and his team a call today and let us help you plan a custom multi-day adventure in the fabulous Florida Keys!
