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.

Great service. Very friendly! Would use this service again. They call and confirm pick up location. The bus was very comfortable.
Sad it was gross. Fun tho.
Christine_W, Feb 2022
Trip was really fun and I’d love to do it again BUT it’s advertised as mask required on the bus and 5 people were wearing masks. The bus bathroom was disgusting and there was no way to wash hands and no hand sanitizer. I’ve worked in situations where the only facilities were portopotties and hiked and buried my waste so I’m not squeamish. 4hours on the bus with traumatizing, gross bathrooms, sticky food (I hope it was food) smeared on the seats and windows and no way to clean it off you…? Yuck. I am Not a weird germophobe but that was not cool. Never mind covid, someone could get really sick from something else…. If they’d said “no masks requirements and bring your own sanitizer or wipes” I’d have been prepared and dealt with it. Driver and guide were nice. Key west was super fun and beautiful. Just be prepared.

Do it!
Amanda_S, Feb 2022
This was a great way to see Key West with a 14 year old. 5 hours was plenty of time. The driver and Tour guide were amazing! Unfortunately the bus was dirty and although our booking agent assured us that everyone would be wearing masks 😷 lots were not and it did make us uncomfortable. There’s no point in that small of a space unless everyone participates as this virus is airborne. If you are concerned about Covid I would definitely pass on this tour. If you, like most of Florida, are not concerned about Covid it was a fabulous time. Bring cash so you can get a discount on the ad on adventures otherwise booked them in advance through the tour company. We neglected to do both and paid full price for the trolley pass which was totally worth it anyways. Also, I would recommend sitting in the front of the bus. The folks in the back of the bus can get quite loud.

The bus driver & Guide was excellent. Really appreciate all the information . Thanks . Bus seats are very comfortable.
Above and beyond customer service
Antonio_A, Feb 2022
Unfortunate wait for couple not returning to bus on time. Guide was more than thorough in explaining departure time, made every effort to reach them, then even delayed departure. This 18 extra minutes cost us over an extra hour in returning to hotel due to Miami traffic. Then they didn’t even make bus, driver drove slower than normal giving them chance to catch up via taxi. Which they didn’t happen until reached Miami. Kudos to driver and guide for good hearts, but planes and ships DON’T WAIT!!!! Everyone else paid price for two unthoughfull passengers who did even tip them.
