Full description

Get ready for fun in the sun on a day trip from Miami to Key West. Choose to take a glass bottom boat cruise through a maze of mangrove-canopied canals and streams, parasail on the coast, ride a conch train, or jump into the water for a snorkeling session above a coral reef with diverse marine life.

Start your day on an air-conditioned bus from Miami Beach to Key West with a 4-hour drive. Watch as your tour guide points out the famous 31 Caribbean Islands along the drive known as the Florida Keys.

Cross 43 bridges as you travel through the Keys to Key West. See the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico while driving by the coastline. Key West is the most southern point of the USA and only 90 miles from Cuba.

Once you arrive in Key West, get 6 hours to explore the island at a leisurely pace, stroll the artistic streets, or relax at outdoor cafes and restaurants.

I had a good time. The quiet driver (even if the first half hour was with the phone to his ear) and quite helpful, comfortable bus even if not very clean! I also booked the snorkeling trip which is so worth it. suits can be rented on board for 20 dollars, fins and masks are free, as are cocktails. I would do it again

Pretty straightforward exprience - you get picked up in Miami, transported to Key West where you spend the afternoon. Our driver also connected us with a snorkeling organizers, so we went snorkeling in the nearby reef. All in all pretty nice afternoon with snorkeling in beautiful waters, good food and drinks, and a bit of Key West exploring.

I've really enjoyed this tour, despite my activity being cancelled very last minute due to the weather, if I had known, I'd have organized my trip differently. Besides that, Key West is a lovely place, so I highly recommend to go. If you can't go parasailing or snorkeling, the Trolley is a nice way to visit the island and to stop wherever you want to. Besides that, the trip was very well organized BUT the AC was far too cold, I've mentioned it, but it was not switched off, unfortunately. I felt extremely cold despite wearing a pullover. So take an extra bag with socks, trousers, shoes and jumper + scarf as it was way below 15 degrees C. As for the tips, it was written on the board in the bus and mentioned several times by the driver, but this is how the US works, so I think when there, one must play along although I think the price is high enough already.
