We went on one day and went back another. It was a fantastic experience. On the way back, the rode was very rough due to a small craft advisory and rough sea. However the crew immediately set expectations & assisted those who needed it. I will travel the KWE again!

Our trip to Key West was on a fairly windy day. The uppermost deck was closed and the middle outside deck got a lot of spray and most passengers chose to stay inside the two cabins. The crew handed out barf bags to those who were queasy. We actually enjoyed the ride. The return trip next day was a lot... More

This boat ride is perfect. It took 3 hours each way (though I think 3.5 hours is the normal... We had great weather and smooth water). Well worth it... No hassle ease of travel -- you just sit back and relax and they even have a bar on the boat. Once you get to key west at around 11:30 am,... More

My husband and I went on the Key West Express and had a great trip. The Staff was so accommodating and informative. We had a great time in Key West and a wonderful trip back to Marco. You are on the island for only about 4 1/2 hours so if at all possible, you may want to spend at least... More

Key West Express is a great way to cut the travel time to Key West in half. When you are here for a limited stay but want to get something different done on your vacation think of this option. It is not fancy, but it gets the job done. Be aware that the waters can be choppy so plan accordingly... More

I prepaid and booked a trip for myself and 2 daughters during my daughter's visit from NYC for a same day trip to and from Marco Island to Key West. We have lived in FL for 30+ years and have never been and decided it was a good time to check it off our bucket list. The day after I... More

I highly recommend to visit Key West by using Key West Express ferry service. You do not need to drive hours but instead you can enjoy fresh air at the sea, harbour is very close to Key West downtown and service is very friendly. Trip took about three hours and catamaran travelled smoothly. As a bonus we even saw some... More

Took the ferry from Marco to Key West. We had a beautiful day. The crew were very helpful and very friendly. The ferry was clean and very comfortable. The inside seating was very comfortable and they had some tables. We were able to bring our dinner back on board as they have no gluten free opinions for food.
