 During the Month of August, You Can Beat the Heat, Get Great Rates at Ambrosia, and Enjoy Some Terrific Adventures

If you haven't been out to Fort Jefferson, it's a great addition to your bucket list.  It's a perfect day trip when you visit the Keys, not to mention some of the best snorkeling around.  So take advantage of Ambrosia's low summer rates and beat the heat at the only National Park completely surrounded by water.

The Dry Tortugas was once a thriving shipping corridor, and the nation's gateway to the Gulf of Mexico.

Named by Spanish explorer and conquistador Juan Ponce de Leon in 1513, Dry Tortugas went from a popular shipping corridor to the home of the Navy's anti-piracy fortress (Fort Jefferson), which aimed to protect the shipping channel and the nation's gateway to the Gulf of Mexico.

Although the fortress was never fully operational, it imprisoned many Civil War deserters and most notably a conspirator in Abraham Lincoln's assassination.

After the Navy abandoned the base in 1874, President Roosevelt registered the fortress as a national monument and the entire island as a national park (Dry Tortugas consists of seven keys; Garden, Loggerhead, Bush, Long, East, Hospital, and Middle).

Visitors can access the island by boat, ferry, or seaplane.  Please book with us early.  Trips sell out weeks in advance.


 Please call us directly at 305-296-9838 and ask one of our helpful and friendly Front Desk Ladies to book your stay.

    Meet Froggie the Third, August's Pet of the Month and "King of the Tank"

Froggie is an African Dwarf Frog that lives in our tank right here in the Ambrosia Office.  We adopted him from the Pet Supermarket in Key West in May along with a few fish buddies.  He's very entertaining because he needs to swim to the surface of the tank frequently to breathe (as seen in the rare photo above), so he's very active.  He'll spend time at the surface with his limbs completely outstretched, which is call "burbling". Then he'll swim straight to the bottom again to relax. 

So, the next time you stay with us, come say hello to Froggie and check out his moves.

Thank you, Froggie the Third, for being Ambrosia's Pet of the Month for August.
