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.

We have wanted to visit the Dry Tortugas for years but the weather and availability have always gotten in the way. This time we booked far in advance with the Key West Seaplane Adventures and the weather cooperated! It was a dream! The 45 minute plane ride went by in a blink - the views were just fabulous. I highly... More

We took the afternoon flight which meant we had the fort and beaches almost to our selves! Great views while on the flight and the captain was friendly and informative. The fort was interesting to explore and the snorkeling was great. Well worth the visit and beat taking a very long ferry ride!

Our trip to the Dry Tortugas—our first time going—was the highlight of our visit to the Key West area. Did the half day trip, leaving at 10/returning by 2. The snorkeling was good—we saw lots of colorful fish and corals—and the beaches were nice and water was warm and clear (went in mid-November). We spent a little time self-touring the... More

I decided to book this adventure for my husband's birthday. This trip was well planned for it was a surprise, from the ladies who answered the phones to the pilots were just amazing! Very professional and fun. We have crossed this item off our bucket list.

Ok, so after our last family off-shore fiasco (seasick family) we opted for the way more expensive way to get to the Dry Tortuga's. BUT! Worth every penny! This is the only way to make the trip. Gary was great and very informative. Pack a beach bag and enjoy the snorkeling. They give you a small cooler with waters however... More

All I can say is WOW! The experience of being on a sea plane, while over these gorgeous waters was one we'll never forget! Plane ride was so smooth and the pilot was very informative, telling us what cool boat wreck or island we were flying over. Dry Tortugas itself was cool, but the plane ride was the best part!...

We have taken this trip a couple times before with the same group and they haven't rested on their laurels. Still a first class organization and one of the best ways to get to the Dry Tortugas. Pilots are very safety conscience yet are very approachable and friendly. They point out some of the more interesting details along the way... More

It has been said before, but... this trip is amazing and well worth the expense! The Dry Tortugas is a game changer and by seaplane it is the icing on the cake! Try to get the first or the last trip of the day to avoid some of the ferry traffic - Being on the island with only a handful... More

As almost all the reviews mention, the experience is amazing. It is expensive for most people for sure but if you are going to splurge this is the time to do it. I have not taken the ferry in the past, but a couple passengers who I met at the fort were desperately trying to buy my seat from me... More

Visiting my parents who live here. Went out today and Marcus was an amazing pilot and guide. The beach was amazing that they took us to at Fort Jefferson. Saw some turtles, chuggs, and shipwrecks along the way.
