Overview

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.

This is the way to go. The trip is convenient and takes only 45 minutes. The flight is scenic and an adventure itself in a seaplane. You arrive hours before the ferry, so you get the island pretty much to yourself if you take 8AM...More

This was alot of fun!! It is a bit pricey but well worth it. Dry Tortugas was neat and we enjoyed that, but the small plane ride was great. Would highly recommend anyone to do this. Bad snorkeling today but really a great experience!!!

We’d been to the Dry Tortugas two years previously by boat and had spotted the seaplane arriving and leaving and thought what an awesome way to travel - so on this trip we decided we’d go for it and fly over. The seaplane is an...More

We did the 10am trip on a beautiful Thursday in December, 2017. The flight is awesome - the plane stays low so that you can see down into the water as you fly along. Some things to note: 1. There are no ranger-led tours of...More

Outstanding experience. Totally worth the money. Gary, our pilot, narrated and played great music. Extremely smooth flight. The ground personnel were awesome. The scenery, the historic site , and the entire trip was first class. Just go it!!!!

We took the sea plane to Fort Jefferson and it was a great decision! We took the first flight out which enabled us to have the island to ourselves( other than a few campers) prior to the Catamaran visitors arriving late morning! This is a...More

We took the ferry several years ago and it was OK, but it takes over two hours and you see nothing of sea life unless a fish or dolphin jumps. If you take the 8AM seaplane, you get out to the Key about 8:35 -...More

I took a sea plane to Fort Jefferson Mational Park on the Dry Tortugas about 70 Miles west of Key west FL. It was very much worth the time and money. Actually the fort itself might be. Bit boring for some as there is nothing...More
