What a THRILLING experience this was for us! I planned a huge Surprise / Bucket List excursion for my husband's Big 50 Birthday! We are from NC and we have a bungalow (No bananas bungalow) in Key Colony and I wanted to plan a Seaplane excursion to Little Palm Island for lunch as a surprise for my husband's birthday. We have always wanted to fly in a Seaplane, although the destination was exciting, getting there was a real THRILL as well! Shannon at Tropic Ocean Airways and the folks at Little Palm Isand were fantastic as our schedule unfortunately changed several times due to a change in my husband's work plans (since this was a surprise- we had to go with the flow) and they were fantastic and accommodating every step of the way. All was set to go until a little storm by the name of Isaac blew in and again our plans had to change on the fly. Everyone handled it like a pro, since Little Palm Island evacuated and all airports were closed. Days later we were back on track! Shannon arranged for the seaplane to pick us up at Marathon Airport only minutes from our bungalow. I was able to reveal the surprise to my husband as the Tropic Ocean Seaplane landed at Marathon. The view is obviously incredible over the beautiful Florida Keys! Little Palm Island was as wonderful as ever... they have a real talent for making you feel like you are the only one on the island. They personalized my husband's menu with a Happy Birthday wish and a custom slice of Key Lime Pie! Absolutely nothing matches a lunch date at Little Palm Island! We absolutely will do this again one day! It was an experience of a lifetime and I earned major points for planning the whole surprise for my husband! Tropic Ocean Airways and Little Palm Island, you made me look so good! And you made it so easy! Thank you for making such a huge SPLASH in our lives! We will never forget it!
