Not inexpensive but your paying for more than the shuttle over to the island. It is a unique perspective and the pilot provided a wealth of knowledge. He pointed out turtle, shark, dolphin and manta ray. We booked a full day trip which I highly...More

Great customer service from beginning to end. Pilots are friendly and knowledgeable. We took the afternoon half day trip which was more than enough time to snorkel and visit the fort. The best part is that there were only about 50 people on the island...More

If you’re debating about the ferry or the seaplane, think no more. Seaplane was an unbelievable experience. Kelly was great in the office answering our questions and we had the smoothest takeoff and landing ever with our pilot Johnny. We felt very safe with him....More

An absolute must for your Key West vacation. You will see so much flying over to Dry Tortugas. The pilot gives you a lot of history and points out some amazing sights. I enjoyed watching the sea turtles swim about, spotted some sharks, and loved...More

No. But our experience is that if you put those things in a bag or backpack they are safe. Crime is not a problem there.
