Taking the seaplane to Dry Tortugas is one of the coolest experiences I have ever had. My husband and I did a 1/2-day trip and thoroughly enjoyed every single minute. The check-in process was very easy, and the staff was welcoming. We each got two bottles of water (they also had soda available) in a little cooler to have with... More

What a special outing this is!! Our group of two parents and six young adults (18-21) took the half day tour and it was a highlight of our recent trip. The operation was pricey but very professional. Snorkeling gear was the best we've "borrowed", everything ran smoothly and on time. My husband and I had visited Fort Jefferson in 1990... More

I'd previously used this company and had a wonderful time. So much so that I ended up talking 3 others into going with me this time. Unfortunately, they called and cancelled on us stating they needed to order plane parts and had to cancel all flights. This was after simply leaving us a voicemail asking for us to call back....

GREAT Trip! We traveled with a five month-old to Dry Tortugas. Loved the friendly staff and historic site Evan (pilot) was awesome and had great music selection!

We took the Key West Seaplane over to Dry Tortugas and did a half day trip. We were supposed to go on Monday but a storm moved in and they had to cancel -- this happens a lot so make sure you don't book the trip on your last available day--it is south Florida and storms can pop up without... More

Key West Seaplane Adventure was the highlight of my trip to Key West. It was worth the $299 price, so do not let that stop you from going. The staff at the airport is polite, professional and patient. They must answer the same questions 9000 times each week, and yet they greet you with a smile, and treat you as... More

We took the day trip to the Dry Tortugas for the experience of flying in a seaplane and maximising our time on the island. This is a professional outfit, even if the pilot wears t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops to work. The snorkelling gear is just fine. They are generous with the cooler and drinks - pick your size cooler; for... More

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
