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.

Excellent adventure...seaplane tour to Dry Tortugas National Park and Fort Jefferson was absolutely the highlight or our Key West trip. And Key West Seaplane Adventures (particularly pilot Gary) were excellent. Definitely worth the money and way more fun, efficient and scenic than the ferry. The...More

Reason I chose the seaplane over the ferry was the time you gain - the ferry takes a full day away and the plane gets you back in time for lunch. Highly recommend the plane despite the extra cost - the fort does not take...More

We enjoyed the trip and the pilot was nice and informative. We could have stayed the full day....it was not enough time to swim and walk around. My adult kids took the Ferry and enjoyed the extra time on the island.

If you are considering the dry tortugas, spend the extra money and do the sea plane. After all, it's probably a once in a life time experience. Go early before the ferry arrives and the island gets overcrowded. Keep an eye out for monster sized...More

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.
