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.

A bit costly, but how many seaplanes are you going to get to ride on in your lifetime? Plus you don't have that 2 1/4 hour ride back on the ferry from Ft Jefferson when you're done exploring/snorkeling/sweating. Fun plane ride out with some aquatic wildlife/points of interest to view. Average snorkeling off of the fort - probably would be... More

My only regret was that I didn't pack a picnic and do the day trip. The plane trip out was breath taking. I can get a bit of motion sickness on planes & boats, but I didn't have any issues. The staff was professional and friendly & the Dry Tortugas amazing. Be prepared to get a bit overheated walking around... More

Wonderful unique experience. Staff and pilot were very helpful and personable. Scenery over water was stunning. Take off and landings on water were exciting. Smoother than expected.

This was so worth the money! Definitely the greatest highlight of our Key West trip and a trip I'll remember forever! The beaches at Fort Jefferson are spectacular and the snorkeling is amazing. The plane ride was comfortable and the sights getting to and from the Fort were to die for. Definitely better than a 2+ hour ferry ride. And... More

We chose this option to visit the Dry Tortuga National Park because we did want to spend 5 hours on the boat. That was a good decision, because to be honest the destination itself we did not find that special. Fort Jefferson is somewhat interesting as an early example of military extravagance, but really of little historical significance. Yes, there... More

This was a great way to visit Dry Tortugas without spending all day getting there. While the views from the plane were very enjoyable, the website did exaggerate the ability to see sharks, turtles, etc. We could see the splash the sea turtles made when they dived under water, but could barely make out their shapes. We still really enjoyed... More

Gary was our pilot and he was great! Trip had breathtaking views, snorkeling was amazing, and exploring the fort was fun. Going by floatplane you had about 2 hours before the large boats showed up so I recommend that if you want to peacefully snorkel and explore. My son was able to copilot on the way back and he got...

Although I had initially wanted to take the first flight out in the morning, I waited to book the trip and they were sold out when I called two weeks before our vacation. We ended up booking the last flight of the day (which ended up being great since we have a 3 hour time difference from home and it... More

My wife booked us a half day trip to the Dry Tortugas. At first I though the price was a little high but afterwards looking at the experiences we got it was well worth it. The flight is on sea plane and everyone has a window seat. Beautiful views from the plane ride over. Much more that you would see... More
