Took the 8:00 a.m. flight arriving at the Dry Tortugas 2 hours before the boat with approx. 150 on board. Plenty of time to explore while only a few visitors on the island. Flight took 30 minutes, pilot was experienced, knowledgeable, and obviously enjoyed his job. Make reservations as far as possible in advance. Complimentary coolers with water and soft... More

My husband and I have always wanted to fly on a seaplane and were excited to be able to do that with a trip to the Dry Tortugas/Fort Jefferson. Our pilot Gary flew and landed the plane beautifully. He flew very low and pointed out all sorts of interesting things to see during our flight. I felt very comfortable with... More

We had an absolutely f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s experience at Key West Seaplane Adventures. From our initial check in to the final farewell the day was organized, efficient, and enjoyable. We were impressed with the operation and especially with the staff. EVERYTHING was top notch and we will definitely be back again! A special shout-out to the best pilot in the known universe-...

My husband and I have wanted to visit the Dry Tortugas for many years, but never had the time to fit it in on our previous trips to Key West. This time we decided to make sure we were able to fit it in. We originally were going to take the ferry, but after reading various reviews of the ferry... More

I could describe as much as possible, but nothing could explain the feeling of arriving at an island in the middle of USA and Cuba in a seaplane. So, I will stick to the excellent and friendly service of the company and pilot who operate this half/full day trip. They are amazing. So if you are going to Dry Tortugas,... More

Top notch operation, ask to fly right seat, and get ready to see some turtles, sharks and ship wrecks.

This trip was easily the highlight of our vacation. My boyfriend and I did the half day trip on a Friday at 12pm, which wasn't our first choice. We were staying in Marathon, so we didn't want to have to get up super early to do the 8am flight, and the 2pm was booked. However, it didn't feel overly crowded... More

We looked at traveling by boat but decided against it because it was windy in the Keys….boy were we happy we took the seaplane! The staff was the best and oh so helpful. Both pilots were fun, courteous and knowledgeable (not to mention pretty good pilots!) Seeing the fort from the air at low altitude was spectacular! A trip will... More

we took the first plane out so when we arrived at Dry Tortugas we were virtually the only people there and enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the fort, the beaches, snorkelling and the wild life. The flight is unique - starting with an exceptionally polite, organised and welcoming staff including pilot John who gave an enjoyable commentary and music... More

We had tried on 2 previous occasions last summer to get over to Dry Tortuga but the weather wasn't kind to us. Seaplane Adventures were though as they gave us a rain check and then a refund because we had to return to the UK. This year we tried again for the full day trip. I was a little worried... More
