Dry Tortugas Seaplane from Key West – Full Day Tour

Dry Tortugas Seaplanes: The Fastest Way to Dry Tortugas National Park

The Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León was the first to discover this chain of seven coral islands 70 miles west of the Florida Keys. And now you can discover the same natural beauty of this spectacular destination from your personal Dry Tortugas Seaplane Charter! Seaplanes are the fastest way to get to the Dry Tortugas, named for the giant sea turtles (“tortugas”) that Ponce de León’s 1513 expedition found there.

The sea plane flight to the Dry Tortugas is so spectacular, it’s an attraction all its own. As you fly west to Dry Tortugas, you will cross over 70 miles of beautiful islands and ocean at an altitude so low that you may see dolphins, sharks, birds, sea turtles, coral atolls, and even historic shipwrecks.
