Overview
More
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.

Much better option than ferry--under 45 mins to get to Dry Tortugas via floatplane with 8 the people, vs. 2.5 hours on the ferry with dozens of people. Plus you see sea turtles and shipwrecks as you fly over the ocean! Take the 8am flight...More

This trip was beyond expectations. It's a quick trip to/from Dry Tortugas. The biggest question I had (and I'm sure why you are perusing reviews) is: half day or full? Well.... I wish there was a compromise. We did the half day and felt rushed....More

This is the way to go. The trip is convenient and takes only 45 minutes. The flight is scenic and an adventure itself in a seaplane. You arrive hours before the ferry, so you get the island pretty much to yourself if you take 8AM...More

This was alot of fun!! It is a bit pricey but well worth it. Dry Tortugas was neat and we enjoyed that, but the small plane ride was great. Would highly recommend anyone to do this. Bad snorkeling today but really a great experience!!!
