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.

Key West and Parasailing:Gaze down at Key West as you glide above the water from a modern parasail boat. Single and tandem rides are available, but participants must be older than six years of age.

I would Def do this trip again! So worth it.

We rented a scooter and were able to see everything! Scooters park for free so that was nice we didn't have to worry about paying for parking. Water was amazing and we saw large fish. The bus driver was skilled getting us there and back safely. And the tour guide Ari was really nice and funny.

Don’t go if you are not a white and don’t know Spanish.

I would never recommend this tour. To start with bus was not clean. And the tour guide name “Orlando” was clearly being racist and only being friendly to Spanish spoken guests. In bus he was going to only Spanish/white people and coordinating and explaining tour details. I normally don’t like to pull racist card but this was very obvious. If you are non white English spoken avoid them and go with different tour package. My experience with other packages with viator were good.

My sister and I took our mom to Key West for her birthday. We had scheduled parasailing. The tour guide was rude for one. Any questions that were asked she answered them annoyingly. For a lot of us, parasailing had been the first time.The first 2 guest misunderstood the parasail guide about pulling the emergency rope. Which canceled everyone else’s turn. The boat driver got extremely upset and began calling them stupid and dumbass in front of everyone else. This was very unprofessional. Mistakes happen and name calling is unnecessary. Made us feel uncomfortable and ruined the vibe of the whole experience. Going back to Miami was a bit difficult because we didn’t get a restroom break. I know it’s a long trip but they should be considerate, considering that you have to stay hydrated due to the heat.

Timing is of essence. Not the best experience!
Avishek_G
, May 2022
The ride was fine and the tour guide tried his best to keep our morale high. The problem was that we got picked up pretty late in the morning and as a result reached key West late and missed the 12 PM glass bottom boat ride. We took the 2 PM ride and for that trip the glass bottom tour company took us to a different part of the ocean and not the coral reef. So the experience was meh! Overall, I felt that it was an overpriced trip for me considering we had to sit on the bus for a hard 8 hours without making a big highlight event (seeing the beautiful coral reefs) for ourselves on the Key West Island. This was frankly disappointing.

So much fun! Orlando was an excellent bus guide, our captain and crew were great! We loved seeing the huge parrot fish! Our only complaint was that the goggles kept getting foggy no matter what we did.

Great deal for a roundtrip day trip.

The trip there and back didn't feel like it took 4 hours each way, and the six hours at Key West definitely felt like enough time. It's great to get a bit of history on the way to someplace new. What I do not recommend is booking the trolley tour that is pitched aggressively on the bus. It has 13 stops, yes, but half of those stops are at hotels on the other side of the island. The first 5 stops are super walkable. I recommend just grabbing the map and walking through that area and grabbing a cab to the southernmost point in the US. There were 3 of us and for the total on the bus and trolley was over $300. For that, we would should have rented a car and stopped when and where we wanted to.
