What To Expect

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.

Miami to Key West
Amber_B, Jan 2022
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.
Punctual good value ride with a hotel pick up
Mira_D, Jan 2022
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
Robert_R, Jan 2022
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.
