We chose the 10am trip which was perfect in July as we were worried about afternoon storms which are frequent and the trip could not have been more perfect. The flight was amazing and both my husband and I with our 12 year old son loved the views, we saw turtles, shipwrecks and sharks! John our pilot was brill, calm... More

I have recommended this trip to everyone that sakes me about visiting Key West. We finally go our chance to fly, on a Thursday afternoon for the late 1/2 day trip after being weathered out on Tuesday. We were also rained out last year. We arrived on Tuesday afternoon excited and ready to go, but about 15 minutes before departure... More

Visited the Keys on a couples trip with my wife. The Seaplane trip was a highlight of the whole trip. We flew to the Dry Tortugas, opting to skip the boat ride for the 'experience' of the plane flight. I do have to say that finding the airport was a bit challenging, and it was an early morning, so we... More

This is a must-do. What an amazing time! Check-in was smooth, the narration on the flight is very helpful, and you get to see some amazing sights along the way. Try to grab the co-pilot seat on the in or out legs. It's really something.

Definitely pay the extra and do the sea plane. You get amazing views of the keys and learn a lot of history. My 16 and 18 year old loved it. We did the 2 pm trip and we were on the Dry Tortugas with only a few people. The boat tour had just left. Snorkeling was great. Very clear water.

WOW. This was awesome. Our pilot was great. Really enjoyed the history lessons of all the pointed out ship wrecks and different islands on the to and from flights. I was really stoked that I got to ride shotgun/ co-pilot seat on the way back. The snorkeling while on the island was really good lots of sea life and great... More

Could not imagine getting to the Dry Tortugas any other way. First class company, from registration and communication to flight. Thank you Evan for an awesome adventure and letting me fly "co-pilot" what a spectacular view from the cockpit. Smooth flight with lots of information and history. Loved taking the early flight and enjoying the isolated quiet island. Very much... More

Take a seaplane to the Dry Tortugas and Fort Jefferson with Key West Seaplane Adventures. They give you a cooler with water and soft drinks, snorkeling gear, and a great history lesson as you fly to the islands. Johnny was a great pilot!

We took the early flight out and got to Dry Tortugas several hours before the ferry arrived so we had the whole park to ourselves. Our pilot was super informative, and the whole operation was really well organized. This was an amazing adventure for our family.
