Overview
More
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.

Do this. It is the most amazing adventure you will have during your time in key west. The plane is very safe and the pilot points out various shipwreck, etc. And you get to see Key West from above.

The only way that can happen, (I know this for fact because it happen to us) is if the aircraft has mechanical problems. Trust me, skip the ferry. It's a long ride back and on that day, the sea was rough and we felt awful.
