Went to Key West and back saving a lot of driving time in the process. Parking is good but there have been some issues. Lock your empty car. Boat is nice and pretty comfortable. Very dependent on the seas.

Let Key West Express get you to Key West from Fort Myers. Comfortable and scenic. Foods ok. Open top deck is beautiful at sunset. A little expensive but worth the trip.More
