Key West Seaplane Adventures provided us with an exciting way to visit the historic Fort Jefferson. The staff and pilot were exceptional. The excursion started and ended exactly as promised. The pilot provided great commentary on the flight out and back as we viewed the breathtaking scenery below us. We enjoyed our time exploring Fort Jefferson as well as the opportunity to swim and snorkel. Thank you for such a memorable experience!

Kris was amazing! My sister in law and I had the best experience, he has away of taking fear out of it and talking about the history and sea life made the trip feel like 15min. I really recommend anyone who goes to Key West to go and experience too. Thank you very much for best time Diana Addison

We booked this seaplane months in advance for our honeymoon. We waited around all day for our 2pm time to board. We get on the plane and the brakes on the plane did not work so our flight was cancelled right as we were trying to take off. I understand mechanical issues happen but apparently they had to cancel 2 flights the day before for other mechanical issues. I can't believe they don't have a backup plane. Kind of scary that the plane has so many issues. Hard to believe it is safe. Very disappointing.

If you go to Key West you have to experience Dry Tortuga. And if you go to Dry Tortuga, this is the way to go. The total price is not cheap, but some things, you just have to do. We took the 8 a.m. half day tour and arrived well more than 2 hours before the ferry. Other than a handful of overnight campers, we had the sea and fort to ourselves. Great narration and you can see marine life while in flight. Water and cooler with ice along with snorkeling gear is provided. We are so glad we did this and hope you enjoy it too.

We are so glad we booked Seaplane Adventures to Dry Tortugas, it was fantastic. Kris, our pilot, was friendly and knowledgeable, giving history and other information during our flight, and he took photos for us with the plane :). We packed lunch to bring, explored he Fort, snorkeled. We have never been on a sea plane before, and it was a wonderful experience seeing the area while flying 500ft. Expensive but worth it. Highly recommend.
