Had a wonderful time in Key West--boat ride, sites, food were great. Will return and stay overnight next time. Saw a beautiful sunset from the boat deck.

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.

We enjoyed this trip but you spend 6 hours round trip on the water. You have to be on the boat at least a half hour early so there is a lot of time on the boat. The boat is very nice but get there early and get a seat inside because it gets cold sitting outside. Take a sweatshirt if you plan to be outside. They do sell snacks on the boat but we took our own food. Also take something to read or do to pass the time because all you see is water. You get to spend about five hours in Key West which was enough for us. It's a cute town with lots of small stores, restaurants and bars. We ate lunch at Sloppy Joes which had good food(especially the sloppy joes) and good entertainment. If walking isn't for you, there is a trolley that will take you on a tour for $21. You can see the southernmost spot in the continental US and the sunset coming home is gorgeous. We were glad we went but once was enough.

We took the Key West Express for a day trip to Key West the day after a cold front came through. The ocean was still a little rough the day of our trip and the boat did sway left to right on both trips. People were visible ill. But this a high speed boat taking you on a 3 hour tour across the ocean so plan ahead people.

We went to Key West for the day aboard the Key West Express. Our trip was rescheduled due to weather, and Key West Express called us to notify us and discuss rebooking options. The boat to and from Key West to Marco Island was on time, clean, and had a great staff. There is a big screen TV in each cabin -- our complaint is that they showed an episode of CSI Special Victims Unit that featured a horrible sexually perverted rape discussed in exquisite detail -- and there was no escape. What were they thinking? Otherwise a great way to go to/from Key West -- please appreciate that the weather may be a factor!
