  • I'm currently on the Key West Express. We paid over $300 and we don't even have a seat! They over book and cannot accommodate. It was a 4 hour trip on the way to key West. We should be able to sit down! They allow people to keep their luggage and dogs in seats. I'm familiar with the family that owns it and highly surprised they'd allow this!
  • Great way to go to Key West! Not only is it convenient but it's an experience that shouldn't be missed. We took a flight back to Fort Myers from Key West but I'm so glad we experienced Key West Express going there. Be careful if you get motion sick if there is weather in the area because it could be a tough ride.
  • It is the fastest and most adventurous way to get from SW Florida to the Keys. The boat is huge, with either inside or outside areas to hang. With The Express your fun in the sun starts at take off. Awesome!!!
  • Was very excited to enjoy a nice ride in half the time only to be disappointed in the lack of seating - we had to STAND for all 4 hours & we were not the only ones some people resorted to sitting on the floor - maybe the Keywest Express should set a limit & allow the boat to be sold out as opposed to packing in as many people or "money's" as they can. Some staff was rude also, one told me there was plenty of seats (suggesting the floor) instead of a comforting apology.
  • Had a great time. The boat is large enough to make fora a smooth ride both ways. Prices for drinks and food on board the boat was better that I anticipated.
