3rd snorkeling trip and the best snorkeling yet. The pilot, great. The plane ride, great. The scenery, great. The parking, not great. The time saved not on boat, great. The instructions, great. The snorkel, bad, wouldn't stay in mouth. Wife couldn't use. That is why we went. Get descent snorkels! Highly recommend, but bring your own snorkel, buy one if... More

We enjoyed your gorgeous flight from Harbour Island, Bahmas as much as you did! We thank you for all the wonderful photos you posted and sent to us. The weather was so beautiful that day (as it always seems to be here in the tropics) and we are so happy to know you loved the experience. We look forward to... More

Absolutely loved it. We were a group of 7 that just did the morning portion. It was perfect. The plane was nice and clean, our pilot was very friendly, and the views were spectacular. Would recommend to all of my friends.

What a fantastic experience. Nick and Julie flew us from Naples to Key West for a couple of days in their beautiful Cessna seaplane. Prompt, courteous, very helpful and above all totally professional in the air - vital when travelling with youngsters not used to "real" flying. We did some sightseeing and a couple of "splash n dash" landings for... More

A private charter flight in one of our custom seaplanes was the highlight of your holiday from Naples to Key West? Thanks! We appreciate your kind words! We also appreciate the enthusiasm your whole family had for the flight experience. Of course we thoroughly enjoy what we do- flying people all day, everyday in our beautiful seaplanes and it never...

This will be the second time I've chartered Keywest Seaplanes to get to and from Little Palm Island. Nick and Julie were prompt on our pick-up at Landmark Aviation at Miami International. We did a little site-seeing over Miami Beach then down the coast and Florida Keys to Little Palm Island. On our way down, we saw a pod of... More

It was one of those spur of the moment trips - My wife and I wanted to find a good way to waste a weekend. Julie and Nick pulled off the unimaginable - flew up to Miami just to get us down to Key West and gave us a huge surprise! Not only were they both there (completely unexpected) but... More

Took a 30 minute tour around Key West early in the morning. It was amazing! Key Wesr Seaplane folks give you a wonderful experience during the tour with sightseeing, island history, fish viewing, water splash and take offs as well as a water landing. Wonderful experience floating on the water and the water take off. A once in a life... More

It was a pleasure flying you on that gorgeous morning! It's really a special time to fly...the mornings when the air is so calm and no one else is up and about yet! Of course, it also gives great opportunities to see wildlife in the water. We are thrilled to know you enjoyed it so much- and yes, we agree,... More

Words simply can not summarize my gratefulness to Julie and Nick for the absolute perfection of their service.

Unbelievably great experience - traveling between Miami and Key West in less than an hour is awesome - and with Key West Seaplanes, we got amazing views and some fun commentary on the geography, too.

I MUST thank Julie - she was the best! The concept of planning a wedding, eloping in Key West, was not as easy as I thought it would be as I started a search to do a typical sunset beach wedding, but glad I somehow ended up finding Key West Seaplanes. I don't think a lot of people can say... More
