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.

Upgrade your day trip by choosing an option that includes one of the following inclusions:

- Hop-on Hop-off Conch Train All-Day Ticket. This 70-minute narrated tour around Key West is one of Florida’s Top attractions, covers over 100 points of interest, and includes 4 Hop-on Hop-off stops around town.

- A 3-hour snorkeling adventure at North America’s only living coral reef. Travel on a state-of-the-art Catamaran, receive professional instruction, use top-of-the-line snorkel gear, and enjoy an open bar on the way back (including sodas beer, wine, champagne, margaritas, well-mixed drinks) 

- A 2-hour cruise on a glass-bottom boat where you can witness the wonders of North America’s only living coral reef, maybe spotting sea turtles and rays. Fun for all the family, you also get great views of Key West from the sea.

- A 12-15 minute parasail off the coast of Key West on a 1-hour parasailing adventure. Enjoy the tropical vibe of the Keys as you are helped into your parasail harness, before being slowly raised in the air, until you are flying high above Key West.

I did the tour without optional activities and that was a good choice since we arrived one hour late because we had to pick up a lot of people at their hotel on the way to Key West. If I had booked an activity there would’ve been no time left to explore Key West. We also had to drop them off at the end that all that pick up and drop off procedure was really annoying for all passengers on the bus since the driver sometimes took turns because he took the wrong way. That way everything took really long. The driver was not very friendly and his way of driving sometimes felt unsafe to the passengers.

Super fun snorkeling experience! The bartender and the captain were on top we had a lot of fun! We left a $5 tip Regarding the bus, it was complicated with the air conditioning on full! It was super cold, there was a lot of heavy braking, and the driver asking for a $5 tip at the end of the trip. If you don't give up he doesn't say goodbye. I recommend the activity but not the bus

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
