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.

They cancelled our trip due to high winds and gave a full refund. I know many people wouldn't leave a positive review, but as a pilot I appreciate them putting our safety before their profits. Throughout the booking and the day of the trip their communication was very timely and professional. I will happily book with them again the next... More

My sister had never done the trip to Dry Tortugas so I recommended the seaplane trip and she LOVED IT! Our pilot, Rob, was great, very friendly, shared fun quips and stories and kept everyone informed about special things along the way. He was a great 'narrator' during the flights both out and back, and really enhanced the trip. The... More

Dry Tortugas is a must when visiting Key West and I can honestly say that the seaplane is the best value out there! Yes it is double tie ferry cost however think about what you get! A 40 min beautiful ride with 8 other people your captain guides you through history and sights as you soar just under 600 feet... More

This is the BEST way to see Dry Tortuga. The company is professional and efficient. They give you a small cooler for you to use while on Dry tortuga, as well as snorkel gear. There isn't any fresh water on the island. Compostable toilets until the ferry gets there and then you use the restrooms on the ferry. The plane... More

We decided to spend some extra on the seaplane instead of the ferry, so glad we did! The seaplane was a part of the fun and adventure instead of just a mode of transportation to the island. Captain Rob was great. Got to sit in the co-pilot seat on the way back! Highly recommend taking the first flight of the... More

What a blast! We decide to take the Sea Plane rather than the Ferry because it was faster and a LOT more fun. How many people can say they landed and took off from the Water? We had my wife and I along with our kids 12 and 14. They LOVED putting on the headsets and looking out the windows.... More

A most excellent way to get to Dry Tortugas! Pilot Rob was great, pointing out sea turtles, sharks and rays! Trip lasts about 35 minutes and you then have about 2 1/2 hours to explore the Fort and snorkel. This may seem a bit hurried, but was ample time for us. Highly recommend!

These guys are the best. Laid back, easy going wonderful pilots and ground crew. Gary, our pilot was awesome! He pointed out all the sights to see in the water and some history of the area. If you don't want to spend all day there, fly with these guys. You will spend 1/2 day and still have time to visit... More
