Marathon’s newest sightseeing venture, Overseas Aero Tours, provides a unique opportunity to see the Florida Keys from a vintage WWII biplane. During the company’s biplane rides for two, passengers can view the historic and contemporary bridges connecting the islands of the Florida Keys and spot marine life such as fish, sharks, rays and dolphins in the clear shallow waters below.
Highlights include a bird’s eye view of Marathon, Pigeon Key, Sombrero Lighthouse and the historic Seven Mile Bridge. Rides combine history and nature in a memorable, fascinating adventure for Keys visitors.
Overseas Aero Tours is a family-run endeavor. Pilots are Captain Brad Neat, who began Keys seaplane tours in 1993, and former Continental Airlines pilot Captain Evan Doumis. Both pilots are certified flight instructors and can provide flight training for those interested.
Excursion prices start at $110 for two people and range from eight-to-10-minute tours to 60-minute flights. Overseas Aero Tours’ biplane is located at the Florida Keys/Marathon International Airport, mile marker (MM) 52.2 gulfside.
