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.

This was a SPECTACULAR trip. One of the recommendations on their website's list of "tips and tricks" said to book the first trip in the morning-- advantage there is you get the island mostly to yourself (you and the other seaplane adventures folks) before the ferry arrives with 100+ people. The ferry pulled in as we were getting ready to... More

Our hotel recommended this company because the fast ferry to the Dry Tortugas was fully booked during our five day stay in Key West. The cost was obviously significantly more than the ferry but ended up bring more than worth it. The office is located in a building at the far end of the airport. You pass the main parking... More

We loved this trip and will do again even though it was pricey! Just such a wonderful experience even compared to the fast boat. Definitely snorkel too!

At first we where held up by weather but they persisted and we made it after two trips which were awesome by themselves. The staff are real pros and very customer focused. We had an absolute blast and can't wait to visit again. It is a little pricey but worth it I promise.

Key West Seaplane Adventures was an amazing experience to see one of the most unique places in all of the U.S., Fort Jefferson in Dry Tortugas National Park. Besides shortening the ride to Fort Jefferson to 45 minutes each way versus 3+ hours each way by ferry, Key West Seaplane Adventures was an adventure by itself and a great way... More

My husband and I went on the Seaplane to the Dry Tortugas Park. It was a once in a lifetime experience. Our pilot, I believe Evan was his name, was friendly & informative. The flight was very smooth & the landing even smoother. We loved getting to see the crystal clear water. We saw sunken boats & sea turtles. My... More

As a teacher grading papers one always faces the issue of the "halo effect." This is where the grade doesn't match the work, but an adjustment is made, usually unconsciously, that the work would have been better, it is just that this otherwise outstanding student must have had a bad day, and the grade gets raised. I think the ratings... More

I have read the reviews of this tour and was very eager to try it. We wound up getting the opportunity to go and could not wait to experience the seaplane. My husband and I have been going to Key West since 2006 and never went to the Dry Tortugas. I always wanted to see it for myself, but the... More

This is an amazing trip and worth the cost. From flying in a Seaplane, to amazing views, to great snorkelling, you will have a fantastic time. If you have never flown in a seaplane it is great landing on the ocean. The guide/pilot is fab, gives you lots of information and the Dry Tortugas itself is great, looking round the... More
