Wow! This was an experience of a lifetime!! My family of 4 all participated ... Including my 6 & 7 year olds. Brad was an excellent pilot and tour guide. He was so sweet to the kids. Although very expensive, it truly is worth it!!! I only wish the length of rides was a little longer...we did the 10 minute ride...total of $240 for all 4 of us.

Thank Sherrie-mom-of-2

Having been to the Keys many times over the years, I've often been intrigued by the " biplane rides" sign at Marathon airport. Down for Memorial Day weekend we decided to go for it. Me and my 70+ mother who has 2 knee replacements reserved a flight. The Overseas Aero Tours team assisted getting Mom in and out of that small cockpit, carefully and patiently. We had a great flight-It's amazing how different things look at that altitude. If you are visiting the Keys-you must do this!!! It is truly awesome!

I did the 30 minute flight and it was a great experience. Very friendly staff. Great views of the island. You can even see sharks in the water!

We took a 20 minute ride on 5/14/2014. It was one of the best flights we have taken and our first in a biplane Evan was our pilot. He made the trip fun and he was very knowledgeable of the area. We liked it so much we may take another ride before we leave. Definitely worth the money. Will recommend to all our friends.

What a great experience. Overseas Aero Tours is located at the Marathon Airport. Capt. Brad and his wife were very welcoming and the 1940's era bi-plane looked very well maintained with a newly reconditioned engine. Prices are reasonable and they can accommodate 2 passengers. The open cockpit and the views are outstanding. Capt. Brad does a good job of showing you the sights of the Marathon area and pointing out sea life in the water below. A very different perspective of the middle keys than you can see by either highway or boat. Capt. Brad is a very experienced pilot and maintains his equipment well, so it was not at all intimidating. I've lived in the Keys for years and always wanted to try this. Now I've got to do it again!
