If youre seeking some a sky-high escapade while vacationing in Key West, Florida, join our professional pilot for a thrilling sight-seeing tour over the expansive living reef system in the marvelous crystalline waters of the Florida Keys. Participants appreciate the one-of-a-kind aerial vista of the magnificence of this teeming marine environment. The waters of this area are typically so transparent that passengers can view marine life in astonishing detail from the air.
This excursion starts with a narrated journey towards the Atlantic side of Key West to witness the white coastline of this island getaway, as well as Fort Taylor, the cruise ship docks, and other landmarks like Mallory Square. You will view other isles from the air, including Christmas Tree Island, Fleming Key, and Sunset Key. Remarkably, you can actually see the features of two shipwrecks through the transparent waters. These ships, once industrious seafaring vessels, now provide shelter for a thriving colony of aquatic species. You can even distinguish different animals like marine turtles, mantas, and even sharks.
This sightseeing flight on our open-cockpit aircraft will then venture to fly over a bustling coral garden where you can marvel at the marine activity at this thriving habitat. Well pass over Sand Key Lighthouse, a stalwart that has been protecting sailors and their craft since the Nineteenth Century. You will then have the opportunity to witness the back country, a wild expanse of saltwater flats and mangrove forests. This spectacular eco-excursion soars above federally-protected wilderness preserves, remote private isles, and the renowned beauty of the Marquesas Islands.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but 30 Minute Sunset Flight is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!
Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
The best way to discover nature! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
