January 2017: Round Trip from Lauderdale to Bimini onTropic Ocean Air sea plane. Fantastic experience from start to finish. Customer service, booking, information/communication - awesome. The sea planes and pilots are top notch. Fun to do water landing to destination, then take off on the return from the water. Great views from the air.

Absolutely the BEST way to travel to Bimini! Amazing staff and pilots and just an all around great experience. Just make sure to read the luggage rules and pack light, but you are going to Bimini - need I say more???

Our family of 7 flew on TOA to Bimini over the holiday week and had a great, fun experience. Flew to Bimini on a caravan and landed at the small Bimini airport and flew back on a sea plane that landed right in front of our resort. Great crews and customer service was awesome! Would recommend to anyone....so much better... More

Tropic has a fleet of all new Caravans, two of them are amphibious planes. Ideal to go from Fort Lauderdale to the Bahamas. Friendly professional crew, good service, safe, and efficient to get to remote places.

This was a very unexpected trip for me as I had just come back from a very long trip overseas on the Air Bus 380 and I didn't know what to expect from such a small plane. The staff were very friendly and Captain Ricardo and his co-pilot were excellent. I already recommended to many people and I hope to... More

Booked on line, because it is difficult to get someone to answer the phone or answer any questions. But, the overall experience was great. They offer free Valet Parking, which we did not know, but found out when we got there. They called to confirm my departure and review my passport information over the phone, which was nice. They offer... More

We had the pleasure of flying with Tropic Ocean from Ft. Lauderdale to Great Harbour Cay. Although we have flown there with multiple charters, this was scheduled service, and we didn't know what to expect. The Sheltair terminal is where Tropic Ocean flies out of, and it is a great facility. We had a little bit of an issue finding... More

Travelling between Ft Lauderdale and Abaco, Tropic Ocean is the perfect airline. Ground staff and pilots are friendly, helpful and motivated to serve their their guests; absolutely no false pretenses with fancy uniforms or attitudes - they know their guests, they understand their destination, and their equipment is A-1.
