Man looking at these reviews had me extremely nervous to board. I'm glad I overlooked them and went aboard.. I have nothing but nice things to say about the express. Upon arrival I was greeted by a gentleman asking me I'd I had my ticket or needed to purchase and directed me into the right direction. The lady at the corner gave me a map and ticket instructions and then I proceeded to the boat. Again greeted by another friendly person. I walked aboard in search of an outlet to charge my phone... Fyi extremely hard to find, lol... But in that hunt I met some extremely nice first timer ferry rides who made my experience nothing but great and even had the pleasure of riding back with them the following day. The following day back I boarded a different ferry, wow this one was huge. The bartender Jeremy was great (so were the brothers on the way down the day before) and kept my drink full. Best part about the second ferry was there was no line for drinks. But the again I had seat at the bar : ) First ferry didn't have a sit at bar so there lines stayed extremely long. I found myself double up drinks each time. Hince why I was feeling good at 10 am lol. I do fine it quiet amusing they use the liquor counter for there drinks especially since I use to bartend. Nonetheless I made it key west there and back safety thanks to you guys. I will definitely use again in the future.

We decided to go to Fort Myers and then found out there was a Key West Express and that was in the original plan. So we can book the trip and I are sitting on the boat right now drinking Bloody Marys heading down to Key West yippee. Have a great day everyone

One of the easiest ways to get to Key West. Have taken the ferry multiple times to/from Key West and have always had a pleasant experience. Don't bother bringing your bike though, at $34.00 it's almost easier to rent a bike when you get there.

Hi, Tom... Thanks for passing the word...

The way back was a complete cluster. The way they board from Key West back to Ft Myers is ridiculous. They pack it so tight that if you run into bad weather and you are sitting outside, you are screwed! Plus, they give you your return ticket when you leave Ft Myers. Of course we lost ours and they charged us $25 each ($50.00) because we could not find them. What a scam!! Let's get into this century folks! If they are not gonna have an app, which would be great for their biz, they should at least take an e-mail ticket at the door. We came from Tampa, so it was 2.5 hrs to Ft Myers, wait for an hour and 3 hours on the boat. Had to get up at 4am to make the boat and drive home in the middle of the night. Between the time/cost/aggravation it's a much better option to drive or fly! I will never take that scam, unorganized POS again!

We are confused as to your referencing us as a scam as we tell each and every guest to place their return ticket in a safe location as there is a 25.00 fee for any ticket requiring reprinting. Additionally this is printed on each ticket, ticket jacket and booking confirmation. We regret that you missed this information and understand your disappointment however there are numerous reasons for the fee. Your original must be voided and reissued and our manifest adjusted with the new issuance. We are sorry your experience was not positive as the vast majority of our guests however do thank you for your most colorful opinion.

What a classy way to travel! Loved the Captain's New Jersey accent and the crew member from New Hampshire who has a mustache that is awesome. Smooth sailing each way. Loved the seating and got to watch good movies. Would have loved more food choices, especially on the way back as we would have spent a lot more money on board. We went on the tour of the Island, which while a bit pricey, provided a great introduction to the beautiful day. Will definitely go again.

Took an over night trip last week with my girlfriend. Or trip down was during some very rough seas and I unfortunately got sick. Staff was very nice and helpful to me and the several other people who got sick on the trip. On the way back waters were normal and I was very pleased with that. We were told to show up no earlier then 5pm for the return trip our it would complicate things with another ship boarding. We showed up a free minutes before so I could get better seats as I was worried about getting sick again. 2/3 of the people were already there and staff had a line for them all set up. I was told the line was full and to sit inside and wait till they were boarded. Felt like I was being punished for following the rules. I managed to find seating in side (there is a top deck that's out doors that I didn't want to get suck on) at dinner high top tables with no backs on spinning stools. Was not to happy about that either. Then we found out they booked the ship 100% including the out door top deck. Was windy and although the sea was calmer than the day before it was still rough. People on top got soaked. Most came inside and sat on the ground others stuck it out. Staff members tried help by giving them garbage bags to use as ponchos. Add the sun went down I aside those people froze add it was a cold wet night for them. I hope they got refunded. I don't think they should book up a ship like that. If it had rained what would the top deck people have done. Knowing what they went through I would be nervous to ever ride again

What a FUN ride to Key West and back (Ft. Myers). It is the best way to get to party central Key West! Why drive when you can sit back and enjoy the ride with a few cocktails on the water. Highly recommend Key West Express!
