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.

We did the half day tour starting at 2pm.... it was great because the ferry trip had just ended and we basically had the park to ourselves. The seaplane ride is spectacular and the snorkeling around the fort is the best! If you don't snorkel, you can walk the perimeter and still see plenty of fish. Keep an eye out... More

I've taken this trip three times. The flight at low altitude is super fun. You fly over wrecks and can see tons of sharks, rays, and turtles on the way out and on the way back. Once out at the fort make sure you walk around the top for awesome ocean views. Snorkel the moat wall, coral heads straight off... More

Our first trip to Key West was highlighted by our flight in a seaplane to the Dry Tortugas. Our pilot, Gary, handled his aircraft in a fine manner, kept us well informed and did not drown us in endless chatter. Nice Job - Gary !! We chose a half day trip and it was perfect for our needs. Everything the... More

If you're in KW, I recommend seeing Dry Tortugas - a great adventure. The best way to get there is with these guys - 45 minute trip, flying low over wrecks, sea turtles and sharks. Easy flight, and Evan, our pilot filled us in on what we were seeing and some of the history of the area. Best part, we... More

A great experience as we had never flown on a sea plane before. They supply a cooler with 2 drinks per person and snorkel equipment. You fly quite low on the way out and back and are able to see numerous sea turtles as well as rays and sharks. The pilot explained the various areas and sights we were flying... More

What an awesome day we had! We did the half day adventure and enjoyed every minute. The seaplane ride was so cool- you could actually see turtles and sharks in the water. And the water was so blue! Dry Tortugas was a very unique experience- and the snorkeling was great- we saw lobster, coral, fish, sea fans, etc. We would... More

We took the half-day trip with 4 people. 2 adults and 2 children 14 and 10. Overall, it was a great experience and we really enjoyed it. Our pilot, Evan, was very knowledgeable and commentated along the way pointing out different landmarks. The trip out to the Dry Tortugas was uneventful and very smooth. No delays from Air Traffic Control.... More

We were lucky to take the half day flight out to the Dry Tortugas National Park. Dry Tortugas is fascinating...old fort built on a spit of land 70 miles west of Key West. But the real draw to this excursion is the flight out and back and snorkeling around Dry Tortugas. Snorkeling is definitely good (swim around the old pilings... More

My wife and I loved this excursion to the Dry Tortugas! The flight is worth every cent. If you love aviation and nature you will love this adventure. The turbo otter seaplane is the best way to travel to the Tortugas. The pilot was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. The island is amazing to say the least! If you are... More

We had an amazing time from take off to our return landing. The flight was so informational and we were able to see so many things. Wrecked ships, dolphins, LOTS of sea turtles and yes SHARKS, chomp chomp. Our pilot had the best music as well! We recommend this opportunity for everyone. Small children who could not see out the...
