This was awesome. The plane ride itself and water landing was really smooth and they give great facts and play awesome music over the headsets. The Dry Tortugas National Park was beautiful although very hot. Glad we had the snorkeling gear so we could jump in the water and see loads of fish and get cooled off! The employees of... More

Beautiful.... When you don't want to spend hours on a boat, do this seaplane. John, our pilot, was very qualified and the ride there and back was super smooth. The half day was perfect. Snorkeled in shallow waters with amazing fish. Quiet and peaceful.....❤️

We have wanted to take a sea plane to the Dry Tortugas for the last 20 years. We finally did it this week and wow was it fantastic. Gary, the pilot, flew around 500 feet and kept us informed of all the things (sea life, sunken vessels, strange buildings, sand dunes, etc.) as we passed them. The take off and... More

I have been looking at this trip for years, but always put it off. Finally this year we did it and I can tell you it was worth every penny! The flight is the highlight......amazing views, friendly pilot, and a smooth ride. Then you have 2 hours to enjoy the beautiful island - crystal clear, turquoise water and a really... More

The seaplane ride to the Dry Tortugas was the best part of the day. Scheduling online was easy. It is located on the regional airport property. There was no parking so we had to park in the airport parking lot, but they gave us a tag for the window and we had no issues. The check in process was easy.... More

The flight out and back is unique and exciting. And then you have time to spend on Dry Tortugas. As we flew out our pilot called out sights along the way from sunken ships to many islands. When it was time to fly back a few of us chatted with the pilot waiting for the others. He gave us some... More

Our family of four just finished a trip with Seaplane Adventures to the Dry Tortuguas and it was incredible. We took the whole day tour and it was well worth it. On the plane ride over our pilot pointed out sharks, turtles, shipwrecks, and dolphins. The water was the most amazing shades of blue. After we landed we had the... More

This is the thing we loved the most while in Key West. Took off with the 2PM group for the half day and WOW!!! They provide you with free snorkel equipment and a cooler of water. They take you via a water landing to the Dry Tortugas National park with a 40 min flight over the bluest ocean and hundreds... More

I am SOOOOO glad I took this trip, and thrilled I chose to go via seaplane. The short ride over was gorgeous, and our pilot, Marcus, pointed out all the interesting sights as he gave us the history of the national park and Fort Jefferson. On a very hot day, the 1/2 day allowed us the perfect amount of time... More

Absolutely beautiful. The flight was informative, and our pilot Marcus was friendly and accommodating. Fort Jefferson is interesting, but be sure to leave time for snorkeling.
