Start your day with a pickup from your Miami or Miami Beach hotel, and relax as you travel south to Key West by bus. 

The scenic journey follows a route across more than 40 bridges including the Seven Mile Bridge, setting for many a movie scene including True Lies, License to Kill, 2 Fast 2 Furious and more. Hop between islands, and then arrive in Key West where a laid-back, Caribbean vibe awaits.

The time is your own here to do whatever you want. Enjoy roughly six hours of free time and check out attractions such as Hemingway House where Ernest Hemingway lived on the island. Or take a stroll through Mallory Square; it’s right on the waterfront in the historic Old Town of Key West.

If you want to maximize your time on the island, select one of these upgrade options and enjoy your activity when you arrive.

Key West and Conch Train:Ride an open-air conch train around Key West, and learn about the island as you go. Listen to narration about the sights as you meander through Key West’s Old Town.

Key West and Trolley Tour:Enjoy a hop-on hop-off tour by trolley, and see the sights of Key West. It’s a great way to explore and sightsee at your own pace.

Key West and Snorkel Cruise:Jump aboard a catamaran for a 3-hour snorkel expedition to a nearby coral reef. Equipment is provided as are non-alcoholic drinks.

Key West and Glass-Bottom Boat Cruise:Cruise out from land to see one of the world’s largest reefs, home to an abundant array of tropical fish and marine life.

Key West and Parasailing:Gaze down at Key West as you glide above the water from a modern parasail boat. Single and tandem rides are available, but participants must be older than six years of age.

Great trip. Even though it is a long day it is well worth it. I would recommend to young and old. Key West is a place to see and taking this tour saves you on having to rent a car. Once you are in KW it is very walkable.

Key West
LaToya_B

Key west was nice! Commute to and from was okay, the seats are small so it was a tight fit for some. My biggest complaint is the tour guide and driver did not drop us off back at our pick up spot. He stated due to traffic they could not drop us off at our hotel. I’m confused as to why they couldn’t but yet other your buses were dropping off their passengers in our area. The Guide said we were only one block away from our destination. He wasn’t completely honest, we were one block from our street but we were 10 blocks away from our hotel. After a long hot day full of activities, we had to walk 10 blocks to get back to our room; And they had the audacity to ask for a tip! The ride wasn’t bad, and pickup was on time. If you are interested just be aware that there is a possibility that would will not get dropped off close to your hotel.

This total experience was only spoiled by rain showers at the destination. Tamara the conductor/narrator and Marino the chauffeur were organized, efficient and punctual in their service on the bus. Tamara was great at narrating information in both English and Spanish languages, was very helpful in getting passengers all the assistance they needed to have an enjoyable visit to the destination. Since it rained for several hours, most tourist activities had to be discontinued or cancelled. Generally, this trip was well worth it and I would definitely recommend it to others.
