We had the pleasure of flying with Tropic Ocean from Ft. Lauderdale to Great Harbour Cay. Although we have flown there with multiple charters, this was scheduled service, and we didn't know what to expect. The Sheltair terminal is where Tropic Ocean flies out of, and it is a great facility. We had a little bit of an issue finding... More

Travelling between Ft Lauderdale and Abaco, Tropic Ocean is the perfect airline. Ground staff and pilots are friendly, helpful and motivated to serve their their guests; absolutely no false pretenses with fancy uniforms or attitudes - they know their guests, they understand their destination, and their equipment is A-1.

Absolutely fabulous service from the entire staff! The personel at the desk handled everything from valet parking to our customs forms. The flight was amazing with the Pilot and Co-pilot making sure we were comfortable. We made the decision to fly Tropic Ocean Airways and will continue to do so. ~Tina~

About 2 weeks in advance, I made a reservation on a flight over the busy July 4th weekend from Ft. Lauderdale to Treasure Cay. I paid about $100 more than Silver Airways, which has never done anything special for me anyway; however, I received at least $1000 worth of satisfaction! Tropic Ocean Airways gets 5 starts in all categories: free... More

My husband and I traveled from Fort Lauderdale to Marsh Harbour a few days ago and could not have been more pleased! The experience was first class all the way.

Amazing service, professional, communicative, safe, clean, quick, etc. etc. Just a few of the reasons I would highly recommend this aviation company: Called on a Sunday morning needing the itinerary - I had it within three minutes Personalized service, no matter who I spoke to, they knew the flight and passengers like we were old friends. The Pilots were extremely... More

Tropic Ocean Airways gets it. Creating a pleasant traveling experience with little hassle. Emails alerting you to arrive 30 mins before your flight, that's right, only 30 mins, want to bring champagne on board...no problem, and immigration is a breeze. Cannot wait for them to expand service out of St. Pete, just hoping they don't grow too much and outgrow... More

I travelled as one of a group of 10 scuba divers who had come from Australia to dive in Bimini in the Bahamas. Because we each carry scuba gear and underwater photography equipment our luggage is both bulky and heavy. We had initially looked for commercial flights to take us either from Miami or Fort Lauderdale to Bimini. However, the... More
