Great way to get to the fort quickly, and the views are awesome.

We took the first plane out in the morning, and it was fantastic! These are old DHC3 Otter planes... read more

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.

We took the first plane out in the morning, and it was fantastic! These are old DHC3 Otter planes, but they are well kept. They were made for function, not luxury, and I loved it. If you can, get the seat next to the pilot....More

A nice Beaver float plane trip from Key West to the Dry Tortugas, which takes a little more than 35 minutes. You fly at 500 feet or lower, so can view sea turtles, dolphin, sharks, reefs, ship wrecks on the way. The national park with...More
