“Rough ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Ride from hell on March 18. They did warn us it would be rough.
OMG. Dramamine helped for about an hour. I had to keep my eyes closed the entire ride we were rocking so much.

The ride home was just great. Smooth and the sunset was lovely.
Staff on both legs of the trip were friendly and professional.

Under ordinary circumstances the ride is very smooth, as you experienced on the return portion of your journey. We regret that your trip to Key West was bumpy, but thank you for acknowledging our friendly and professional staff and crew. Most of the time we are blessed with year round good weather here in southwest Florida, however there are times when Mother Nature is unpredictable, therefore taking a precaution can be advisable. We appreciate you taking the time to review and hope that we have the opportunity to welcome you aboard again in the future.

“Excellent Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

The Key West express took us from Marco Island to Key West and back.Very professional and caring crew. The boat was very clean and immaculate. Fast boarding process and very timely. Nice Galley for snacks and big screen tvs to view for the 3 hour journey. Some motion from the sea but if you were thinking there would be none then rent a car. It is a boat ride which requires water and you will have wind, nobody got sick and it was truly a experience of a lifetime for our 30th anniversary. Thanks again ! Very Nice...

“Easy ride.”

Great way to travel. No car needed in Key West, but be prepared to stay incase weather changes. The ferry can cancel due to storms.
