This was a pretty nice ride from FMB to KW. Boat is fast and has pretty of seats (although this time of year was very crowded). Return trip to FMB had a view of the sunset followed by stargazing on the top deck.

Hi.. I would use tripadvisor and mapquest. Hotels in Fort Myers Beach. Call a cab or Uber or walk. But no they are not right next door. Hope that helped.
