 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 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.

 It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of our beloved Amy.  Amy adopted Ambrosia over 10 years ago and had been a special part of the Ambrosia family ever since.  Many repeat guests would seek her out as soon as they arrived.  Even people who don't consider themselves "cat people" loved Amy.  She was definitely well taken care of during her time with us, as everyone on the staff and many of our guests always made sure she had everything she needed, including plenty of affection. Two of her biggest fans, Kate and Monika, were by her side to comfort her at the end.  We think Amy was about 19 years old.

                     R.I.P., Amy.  We will miss you.
