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.

Received hotel pickup on time in a coach bus. Next we made approx 10 more stops to pick up other people that would be joining on on the day trip to key west. The drive is long which is expected. I suggest maybe 3 meeting locations along Miami because picking each person up at their respective hotel took about an hour and half. Then when you return after a long day you have to drop them off. After getting to key west at approx 11:30 I paid for the snorkeling, as a result of the time we arrived and me doing this tour there is literally no other time to explore key west. It was a windy day the tour crew for the snorkeling was very accommodating offered a refund if we changed our mind. I still did it. The offered drinks on the Catamaran I wouldn’t of mind food since it was such a long day. After that was finished at approximately 4. Had to head back to the bus which leaves at 5:30. Guide on the bus was nice also Knowledge. My biggest set back was all the pickups

Bus ride was long but the 5 hours in Key West was worth it. Only things that bothered us was the air conditioning not being on the trip back, and the pick up process was longer than it needed to be. It would be easier to get picked up all at one location and get on the road.

I just bought a ride both ways, it was on time. I was lucky to get a sit by the window but it was a lottery. Very difficult to hear and understand what was being said by the guide if You were sitting at the back.

Key West with a hiccup

Really enjoyed the day trip to Key West. The bus was relatively comfortable and the guide was very knowledgeable. My only complaint is that we were not picked up at our hotel (The Alexander). Had to be picked up at a location 4 blocks south of the hotel even though the bus route went right by our hotel. Thoroughly enjoyed the time spent at Key West.
