When the Billboard-topping country group Zac Brown Band shot their video for “Jump Right In,” the Postcard Inn Beach Resort (PCI) at Holiday Isle in Islamorada was the perfect tropical location. In the video, the group coasts over the turquoise waters of the Florida Keys in a seaplane and disembarks right onto the white sandy beach at the 143-room resort. Now everyone can get the rock star treatment with PCI’s new partnership with Tropic Ocean Airways.

Postcard Inn's new vacation package includes exclusive seaplane transportation from Ft. Lauderdale International Airport or the Miami Seaplane Base to the beach at the resort--the longest private beach in Islamorada. They also offer packages through their sister property, La Siesta Resort and Marina, three miles away. Shuttle transportation is provided between PCI and La Siesta.

The seaplane is perfect for families and groups who are looking for an exciting alternative to the long drive from the mainland on U.S. Highway 1, where traffic can be heavy on holiday weekends. The package includes low-flying sightseeing views over North America’s only living barrier reef, and it's easy to spot the sea life in the clear water below.

Seaplane charter flights between Miami and Islamorada only take about 45 minutes, so you’ll be kicking back at Rum Runners Tiki Bar and sipping one of their famed frozen rumrunners in no time. Watch out for those Bacardi 151 floaters!
