South Florida seaplane service to expand

ADVERTISEMENT

Tropic Ocean Airways is expanding its service from the Miami Seaplane Base on Watson Island between downtown Miami and Miami Beach. The seaplane airline now has FAA commuter airline operating authority, which allows it to offer an unlimited number of scheduled flights, according to a company news release. The airline says it will also continue to develop its private charter and sightseeing tour operations.

To date, most of Tropic Ocean Airways’ business has focused on the private charter market. With its upgraded operating authority, Tropic Ocean Airways plans to expand its scheduled service offerings from Fort Lauderdale and the Miami Seaplane Base to Key West, Bimini, Marsh Harbour, Nassau, and other destinations to be announced later this year, the company said.

Tropic Ocean Airways, founded by U.S. Navy fighter pilot Rob Ceravolo in 2009, offers weekly service from South Florida to Bimini, Great Harbour Cay, and Marsh Harbour with its fleet of 11 aircraft. All Tropic Ocean Airways’ flights are operated by two pilot cockpit crews, and feature air-conditioned cabins with club seating for eight passengers with up to 30 pounds of baggage each, according to the company.
