About Key West Seaplane Adventures
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.

The whole trip was amazing! Our pilot John was fantastic. We were traveling with 4 kids under 11 and everyone of them loved it all! Can’t wait to do it again and stay longer next time!

We operate two DeHavilland Turbine Otter seaplanes. Each aircraft holds 10 passengers plus the pilot, giving us a capacity of 20 passengers for any time slot. All are window seats. Best, Key West Seaplane Adventures
