Get to Key West by ferry

Although Key West has excellent access thanks to many bridges, the ferry is a very good alternative for people who live on the West Coast of Florida.

There are two fast ferries from Fort Myers and Marco Island. Both are operated by the Key West Express ferry company. Currently, these two ferries are the only ones that sail on a regular basis.

Contrary to popular belief, there is no Miami to Key West ferry. If you want to go by boat from Miami to Key West, you are dependent on charters. A very good alternative is the bus though.
