We booked a roundtrip charter flight with Key West Seaplanes from Miami to Little Palm six weeks in advance. 2 days before our scheduled departure, they sent us a cancellation email due to legal problems and a "sorry for the inconvenience" message, without offering to help re-book us on another charter operator. Poor form. We went with Miami Seaplanes and... More

Husband and I were so excited to view the dry tortugas by air. We were told they would fly low to see Dolphins and ship wrecks. I saw 1 ship wreck and no sea life. My only view of the fort was because I turned around and looked out the window behind me as we were leaving. Way too expensive... More

Hi, You have posted your review to the wrong business. We did not fly you in any of our seaplanes. All of our flights are incredible, live-narrated, customized flights that are private charters. People that fly with us have the luxury of asking their pilot to circle their seaplane around any points that are interesting along the way. So, if... More

Hi, We believe you have posted to the wrong business listing since we do not offer snorkeling equipment or snorkeling. Our parking is totally free and very convenient to our departure point, so again we believe you have posted to the wrong business listing. We also have no idea about what you mean about "time saved on the boat". We... More

You have to do this before you die! Forget private jets. This is style. And we did our research. They keep the aircraft immaculately. Very good service. Everything went smoothly. Very professional. We will be back.

Absolutely loved it. We were a group of 7 that just did the morning portion. It was perfect. The plane was nice and clean, our pilot was very friendly, and the views were spectacular. Would recommend to all of my friends.

What a fantastic experience. Nick and Julie flew us from Naples to Key West for a couple of days in their beautiful Cessna seaplane. Prompt, courteous, very helpful and above all totally professional in the air - vital when travelling with youngsters not used to "real" flying.
