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.

Completely enjoyed this 4 hour adventure to Fort Jefferson and Dry Tortugas NP. Free parking, beautiful scenery, an awesome water landing & takeoff, and 2.5 hours to snorkle and explore Fort Jefferson. The free water & sodas were a nice touch and very refreshing on...More

The bad first: Yes, it's expensive. The seaplane ride is loud(although headsets are provided to lessen engine noise). And the plane leaves from Key West airport. Everything else about this excursion is great, amazing even: Our pilot flew a de Havilland Otter ten seat propeller...More

What a fabulous way to spend an afternoon in Key West! John, our very skilled seaplane pilot narrated our flight over to Tortugas pointing out various ship wrecks, islands and marine life. The turtles were lazily swimming in abundance that day. Once we landed, we...More

Was a very smooth enjoyable experience. First time there and thought half day might be too short, it worked out great.

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.
