This was the greatest experience my wife and I had. Loops, roles and anything else you can thank of. See fish, turtles and wrecks. I cannot tell you how much fun it is. If you would like a little excitement do it.

Visiting Fort Jefferson is worthwhile, especially if you don't have to spend 2 1/2 hours getting there by ferry. The seaplane is an adventure in itself. Getting an aerial perspective of the keys and the water is incredible. That said, I thought this company was not quite as well-organized as I thought it could be. First, they could have a... More

Dry Tortugas NP is unique, amazing all on it's own. Arriving there by seaplane, that makes it several notches more fabulous. OK, it was SO awesome! I would go again just to take the flight back and forth!! What made the biggest impact on us was the quality of the people that make it all happen. There were two people... More

We had such an amazing and fabulous experience with Key West Seaplane Adventures . The staff at the airport, as well as our pilot (Evan) for the flight, were very friendly and professional. The charge is a little pricey ($300 per person). But worth it in my opinion. The views from the plane out to Dry Tortugas National Park are... More

By far the coolest thing that we did down in Key West! Never been in a seaplane and my daughter was very nervous about doing it. It was such smooth take offs and landings. John, the pilot, explained areas we were flying over as well as the historic information about Dry Tortuga. We spotted a shark from the air as... More

We had an amazing trip with KW Seaplane Adventures to Dry Tortugas NP. We took the early trip, leaving at 8 am from KW airport (free customer parking). All passengers got 2 drinks in a small cooler and snorkling gear for use on the island. After a short instruction video, the pilot gave a clear instruction how to board and... More

From the minute we walked into the Seaplane Adventures' office til we walked back out the gate, the crew was professional and covered every base. My husband & I had a wonderful time. You will too, especially if Evan is your pilot/docent. Evan watched all 10 of us carefully as we boarded and got situated, then he jumped into the... More

I can't say enough good things about this tour. Extremely well organized. They provided snorkel gear, cooler with drinks. The pilot was easy-going and very competent. First ride in a seaplane - really neat to land and take off from the water. Half day tour was the perfect amount of time to explore the fort. Early morning (8am) is best... More

We flew to Dry Tortugas via Key West Seaplane Adventures. Great way to get there and our pilot pointed out places of interest along the way. We took earlier recommendations and took the first flight which gave us time to explore before the ferry arrived. Highly recommended!

What a rare treat! Booked this flight to the Dry Tortuga island location of Fort Jefferson almost as soon as we learned we would be in Key West for several days. Chose the 8 AM flight on January 29 and were not disappointed with either the weather or the "adventure". Evan piloted the Otter seaplane effortlessly, East/West, and was running... More
