Der Bus hat uns leider erst nicht gefunden, doch als wir angerufen haben waren alle sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Uns wurde ein Uber geschickt, das uns zum Treffpunkt des Buses fuhr. Der Busfahrer war super nett, wir konnten noch die Schnorcheltour buchen, die absolut empfehlenswert ist! Insgesamt war es ein sehr schöner Tag mit holprigem Start.

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.
