Overview

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.

We took the ferry several years ago and it was OK, but it takes over two hours and you see nothing of sea life unless a fish or dolphin jumps. If you take the 8AM seaplane, you get out to the Key about 8:35 -...More

I took a sea plane to Fort Jefferson Mational Park on the Dry Tortugas about 70 Miles west of Key west FL. It was very much worth the time and money. Actually the fort itself might be. Bit boring for some as there is nothing...More

We were called the evening before our departure and informed they had to cancel. The reason they provided was the pilot reported mechanical problems with the plane. It was our one opportunity to see this amazing island during our trip to Key West, our signature...More

Zipping over the turquoise water and spotting turtles and sharks was just the beginning of our excursion to the Dry Tortugas. Friends said we were cheating since we got there in just 30 minutes instead of the 2.5 hours via boat! The fort was cool...More

Check the Key West seaplanes to the Dry Tortugas last month. It's the low altitude flight in an older seaplane. Our pilot was professional interesting and engaging. During the flight the pilot will speak to you through your headphones and point out to you schools...More

Yes, its expensive but really worth the price. The pilot was very nice and funny. The time on the island just flew by, I would have loved to stay another hour (maybe not for a full day though). Id recommend taking the 2pm flight if...More
