The salty breezes. The stunning ocean views. The gridlocked holiday treks. The daiquiri-fueled antics of people with a proclivity for rooftop nudity.
Key West is mostly great.
Helping you to avoid any potential pitfalls this long weekend: Soaring Experiences Key West. It’s a package from Casa Marina that enlists the help of a seaplane to fly you directly to their pier, and they’re taking reservations now. Here’s the slideshow.
You’ll start by placing a call to Casa Marina and letting them know that you require the services of something that won’t get caught behind a six-axle trailer on US 1. That’s when they’ll ask you to head to your preferred Florida airport and await the cavalry.
Which will look a lot like a seaplane since it’s a seaplane. A private one where a healthy amount of champagne consumption will likely occur. You and a date will board the flight, toast the crowded roads below and find yourselves looking at Casa Marina’s pier before you know it.
You’ll be escorted to a private beach. People will be waiting with beverages. Someone will snap a photo. You’ll head back to your oceanfront room and find two pairs of aviator sunglasses, which you’ll put on before continuing to do things.
Like not sitting in traffic.
