As the only air-service, we are by far the most exciting and convenient way to reach the Dry Tortugas, one of North America's most inaccessible National Parks. The Park lies in the blue-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico, 70 miles due west of Key West, FL. Low altitude sightseeing flight, great snorkeling, pristine beaches, tour Fort Jefferson & bird watching. Morning, Afternoon & full day tours.

There are some things you splurge on...This is one! The flight was fast and informative on the way over. Pilot described different sites along the way and we were so low we saw turtles and shark in the waters. Once on the island, the fort is one of the most complete we've seen. Snorkeling was easy and fun. Time was... More

After much research we decided to book the 2pm flight to dry tortugas for myself and my husband along with for 2 and 6 year old boys. I'm definitely not a high adventurer and once I saw how small the seaplane was I started to get nervous. The plane ride was loud and hot (no ac just a little hole... More

I have been dying to visit the Dry Tortugas and riding in a seaplane is on my traveling bucket list so I got to kill 2 birds with one stone for this one and it was amazing! The ride was great and I felt very safe in the plane and not claustrophobic at all. The views were amazing and we... More

After doing the research about Fort Jefferson and the Dry Tortugas National Park, we quickly realized how cool it would be to include that on our Key West itinerary. We booked our trip with Key West Sea Plane Adventures and enjoyed a great seaplane flight from Key West to Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas National Park. While making this... More

Pilot was fun and the ride great. Enjoyed Fort Jefferson. Fun place to snorkel and bird watch. Enjoyed the "bird's eye view" of the wreckage of ships and spotted a few sea turtles. Recommend the half day.

Full review with 30+ photos on my blog (link in profile). I have been to KW 10-12 times, and every trip I say to myself "I'm going to visit the Dry Tortugas this time." Well, last August I finally kept that promise to myself and booked the full-day seaplane trip. It is about twice as expensive as the half-day trip... More

I've always wanted to see the Dry Tortugas and since I was in Miami on business drove to Key West to experience this with KW Seaplane adventures. A few things to remember. 1. Book early. 2. It's much, much more fun to take the seaplane than the boat. 3. KW Seaplanes is the only tourist outfit permitted to do this... More

My wife & I did a half day trip to Dry Tortugas. Loved the float plane experience, toured the fort, beached and snorkeled for about an hour. The history behind and of the fort was fascinating. Would recommend this to everyone.

I had an amazing flight and snorkel adventure on The Dry Tortugas! I went by myself but buddied up with a man who was also solo. Never snorkel alone. We were only on the island for 1/2 day which was not enough time. The seaplane flight was amazing! Well worth the money. Lots to see from sea turtles, ship wrecks,... More
