arriving at airport you are looked after from arrival to the very end of your trip. You are even given a little cold box with drinks for your trip. John was our pilot & he was great, he is full of information and you feel very safe and relaxed. You will see fantastic colours and might even spot a turtle... More

One of the best ways to see the lower Keys and its pristine turquoise shallow waters. Beginning with a short flight from Key West enroute to Dry Turtogas, you will be able to see . boats, sea turtles, sharks and learn some of the history of this region. This is, by far, the best way to view Fort Jefferson and... More

Took the late day half day trip to the Dry Tortugas -- it was perfect. A beautiful 35 minute flight out to Garden Key with interesting information from our pilot Gary. The ferry left as we got there, so it was like having the whole island to ourselves. Toured the fort, took a ton of pictures, snorkeled, and saw lots... More

Going to the Dry Tortugas was a must on our USA holiday but do we catch the ferry or go by plane, after researching the options we decided on the seaplanes. We chose the plane as it was quick (~1hr) compared to the many hours on a ferry, the views during the journey (as the plane flies pretty low) and... More

This may be a bit more expensive than the Ferry, but so worth it! 50 minute flight - fly low to see everything in the ocean, turtles, sharks, sandbars, shipwrecks. Magnificent views. Landing and taking off in the water was so smooth. We took the 2pm flight. as we were landing the ferry was departing. There were ten of us... More

This was a great call to take the Sea Plane to the Dry Tourtugas!! Very Smooth, awesome, 45 minute flight to the Island with a lot to see on the way. You get there way before the ferry, so you have the island pretty much to yourself. Our pilot, Gary, was great!! I highly recommend taking the Sea Plane to... More

We booked this seaplane fairly expensive flight to the Dry Tortugas as the catamaran trip was fully booked. We were given drinks in an ice box prior to the flight and snorkelling gear was also available. The flight took approximately 45 minutes and were given plenty of facts on the way out to the small islands. We were supposed to... More

My wife and I flew with nine others and John, our pilot. We flew on December 24. My wife told me that this was my Xmas present since I love to fly different types of aircraft. The flight was great and John was an outstanding pilot , narrator, and educator. Yes, it is costly but it is an experience to... More

we drove down from Miami wondering what to expect,and we were not disappointed,a wonderful professional service was provided made all the more special by the pilot allowing me to sit up front on the way back from our Island experience.A highly recommended day trip for individuals and families alike.
