Everything was just perfect! From the check in at the airport, with complementary coolers for each party, to the waiting cabs at the end of the ride, worth every penny! Our pilot was great and we had the smoothest take offs and landings I've ever had in ANY plane! Can't beat hearing a Jimmy Buffett song as you are flying... More

Last week a girlfriend and I spent the week in the Keys and stumbled upon the Seaplane Adventures. I called and spoke with Fiona in the office who informed me they were sold out but there may be an opening if another party cancelled. Within two hours she phone me back and was able to accommodate us in the afternoon.... More

We flew out to Dry Tortuga. It was my first time in a seaplane and it was awesome! Gary was our pilot and he pointed out shipwrecks and interesting things along the 40 minute flight. You can see sea turtles, stingrays and dolphins as the water is so clear. You spend 2 hours on the island visiting the Fort and... More

Of the many adventures we have had, our seaplane flight to Dry Tourtougas was a once in a lifetime experience! It has magnificent snorkeling & just such a unique, breathtaking experience.

This was the best sightseeing trip we have ever taken! It was well worth the money. We got there quickly 35-40 min flight, had a little over 2-1/2 hours on the island and quick flight back. Our pilot, John, was great, you can tell he is a well seasoned pilot. His attention to detail and professionalism made us feel very... More

It was our first water plane experience and we enjoyed every minute of it! The view from the plane is just stunning! We arrived at 2:30 when the ferry was about to return and left the island only for us.

We had high expectations that this trip would be memorable. But we had no idea just HOW amazing it would be. Our time in the Keys was limited so we opted for the seaplane that wouldn't take up the entire day. Let me just say that taking off and landing on the water is cool as $hit! The views and... More

We took our 2 sons, ages 20 & 21. It was amazing. While flying to the island we saw lots of sharks, giant sea turtles as well as sunken boats. The flight was quick & once we arrived the walking tour of the fort began. We enjoyed the tour & were amazed the number of bricks that were transported in... More

The company was great to work with- from reservations to preflight briefing through the trip. The flight was great- much faster that by boat and great seeing the area between Key West and the Dry Tortugas as well as an aerial view of the Fort. The company provides snorkles, fins, and a vest if you want to try snorkling around... More

Excellent adventure...seaplane tour to Dry Tortugas National Park and Fort Jefferson was absolutely the highlight or our Key West trip. And Key West Seaplane Adventures (particularly pilot Gary) were excellent. Definitely worth the money and way more fun, efficient and scenic than the ferry. The ride takes about 35 minutes and the pilot does a great job of pointing out... More
