If you've already driven the Keys and don't want to do it again, this is a great alternative. It's a smooth pleasant trip and you arrive ready to start enjoying,not tired from driving. Plus you don't have a car to worry about parking, because there's no easy driving in Key West.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and great advice. A car can be cumbersome on Key West and the drive no fun. While it is pretty, one fender-bender or break down on the Overseas Highway can create lengthy gridlock. We appreciate your feedback and choosing to sail with us!!

This trip is a nice experience if you get good indoor seating. Do not ever seat yourself outdoors. Traveling at 40 MPH is too cold and breezy. Eventually you are standing inside. Come an hour early or get last choice on seating. Bring cards or games. Snack bar is great and so is the bar. Very well ran I thought. This ship is a motoring machine. It is awesome to see the power wake this Catamaran puts out at 40mph. Beware, If rough water. It might not be fun. Our trip was beautiful.

Well....Like they say, the early bird gets the worm. No different than seating at a popular restaurant, early arrival ensures a greater selection. It is a pleasure to know you enjoyed! Thank you for your very nice comments.... and advice on early arrival!

We took the Key West Express ferry from Fort Myers Beach to Key West and back. A very smooth trip in a comfortable setting. It was a much easier way to travel to Key West compared to driving. The ferry dock in Key West was extremely convenient to the harbor side area and Old Town and we were able to easily walk to our B&B accommodations.

Totally enjoyed the trip and convenience in Fort Myers. Docks within walking distance to all downtown attractions and conveniently sell Tour Train tickets. If you want to see the movie sit close to the TV's. Get there early for best choice of seats. We traveled on a good weather day both there and back so the ride was smooth and comfortable.

We really do dock at a great location. Just steps away are wonderful restaurants with tantalizing seafood, fun shops and galleries, Dante's enormous waterfront pool with restaurant and bar, beautiful boats and the salty smell of the sea.The Conch Train Tour is a quick way to explore the lay of the land and absorb some island history. Thank you for being our guests. It is rewarding to know you enjoyed!
