We had a pleasant trip from Marco Island to Key West, we stayed a few days and took the Key West Express back to Marco Island. The crew was so accommodating and pleasant and made the trip such a pleasure, I'm sure we will do this again. There were light snacks and drinks for purchase, and we had a really... More

We found the Big Cat ship from Marco Island much less crowded than the ship from Ft. Meyers. Ship was clean, personnel friendly and helpful. Seas were quite smooth on both trips down and back. Appreciated the scheduling which allows time on Key West. Best for us was a 3-day get-away....2 overnites gives lots of time to kick back and... More

Great experience. Much better than the Fort Meyers sister ship. Smaller, less crowded, less rowdy crowd.

This was our first time to Key West. The boat ride was smooth and we enjoyed our sunset from the deck on the return trip. Next time we plan to spend a night or two and see more of the historic places.

Great day trip or over night visit. What they dont tell you is that it a long walk or the need to get transportation from the dock to the hotels or the bed and breakfasts. Long lines for transportation

A day trip is a lot of fun however it is always nice to spend a night or two on the island. Parking at the Marco Island location is across the street from the Marina, therefore walking is required to board the vessel. In Key West there are cabs and pedicabs available outside the terminal however always check with your... More

The Key West Express is wonderful. Hop aboard in Marco and you are in Key West in two hours. Not just a boatride on our beautiful gulf but a destination cruise as well. Spend a night or two and you have a wonderful mini vacation. We loved it.

We (a group of eight) recently traveled via the Key West Express from Fort Myers Beach to Key West ... we then stayed over a night, and returned the following evening. It was a great way to travel ... even with a little rain, it was fun. We enjoyed being on top of the boat but it is very windy... More

A must do to Key West! The staff on the Express were so very friendly! Do not do the train tour of the island its not worth the money.

Thank you Jackie C.... A pleasure to receive your thumbs up! We are sorry you didn't find the Conch Tour Train a good value. Most find this to be an enjoyable, educational overview of the Island's highlights. We do hope you will sail with us again and again! More
