Glass-Bottom Boat: As you cruise through the clear turquoise water, gaze down through the boat’s glass bottom to discover part of the Florida Reef, the 3rd-largest coral barrier reef in the world. The reef is home to a variety of coral and tropical fish.

Conch Train: Perfect for first time visitors, the fully narrated Conch Train Tour of Key West is a fun way to explore and learn about the island. Climb aboard and see the sights as the quaint open-air train winds through Old Town Key West.

Snorkeling Cruise: Take a three-hour snorkeling cruise in a 65-foot (19 meters) catamaran to the coral reef off the coast of Key West. You’ll discover a whole new world of underwater plant and marine life. Because of the warm tropical water, you can snorkel this reef year-round.

  • We were picked up in Fort Lauderdale to join this day trip to Key West. We had to travel to a pickup hotel location. We were first to be picked up and driven 30-45 min to join the group in Miami and last to be dropped off!! The rest of the tourists were staying in Miami and were picked up from their hotels. The bus driver delivered us to Key West at the designated time and picked us up promptly. Because of the early morning start and late night return, I would not recommend doing this trip from Fort Lauderdale unless you are willing to sit in the bus for hours. Also, since we were dropped off at the same pickup location which is not our hotel, we ended up getting a taxi back to our hotel.,,hence, a very long day!!!

  • I booked this tour, hoping that it wouldn't be a this sounds better than t actually was and I was truly relieved! The tour was through Greyline Tours in Miami and they had a pick-up leg in Ft. Lauderdale. I followed suggestions and called ahead to confirm my booking. The night before the trip, my pick-up driver called me to confirm the next morning, I got a little lost and called him to say I was late and he guided me to my location. He drove all of those who were atheist pick-up point to Miami to get on the actual tour bus. The tour guide on the tour bus I'm sorry that I can't remember his name was superb! He literally guided the entire trip in English and Spanish AND took care of our needs for additional tours on Key West. He stated expectations for the return VERY early and there should have been NO reason for anyone to be misled and everyone was back on the bus on time. He was patient, helpful, but also structured and time conscience. He took the stress off the travel for all us tourists. The bus driver was a great, very safe, smooth driver. They were a great team and made my day trip stress-free and enjoyable. I highly recommend doing this tour rather than trying to drive for a day.

  • Overall good Key West experience. Great not having to drive my own car. The 7.50 breakfast stop was a bit of a tourist trap--with only one ladies room for five busloads at one time. Hop on trollies could be scheduled more frequently. Having to wait a half hour per stop cut into sightseeing time. On the return trip having ten drop off points in Miami while Ft. Lauderdale customers had only one could have been condensed. And our bus breaking an axle at the last stop in Miami lengthened the Fr. Lauderdale trip by almost 2 hours.

  • Provider did not pick us up at the pick up piont

  • The trip to Key West itself was great, but some of the logistics were wanting. We started off in Fort Lauderdale, took a van to a hotel in Miami, and then waited for 50 minutes for the bus to Key West. I had a hard time getting a human being at Gray Line Miami, and when I did, I didn't get any good answers. It wouldn't have been quite so unpleasant had there been seating in front of the hotel, but alas, no.

  • No hotel pick up and drop off a down point, dropped off at end of long day in Miami without proper instructions of where to meet van. Originally went to meeting point in morning to be picked up by driver who spoke little English and didn't tell us he was taking us to Miami to meet main bus

  • Really good day out - quite a long day spent travelling but worth it. Did the trolley bus when got there so could see the island and where we wanted to see again. Had lunch, walked round some shops and went to beach. Water lovely and clear, lots to see and very clean.

  • Booked this trip through Viator. Thought they were going to put my me and my husband on Miami Gray Lines but instead was put on Cubanacana. We first met the shuttle bus in Fort Lauderdale which they were prompt and dropped us off in Miami to catch the Charter Bus. Cubanacana's original bus broke down so the replacement bus arrived 45 minutes later which I understood but not sure if they put us on a back up bus. We had a pretty good rain storm in Miami so the bus roof leaked towards the back of the bus. Luckily it wasn't a full bus so we could move to another seat. Restroom was provided. We could only use 1 and not 2. I didn't have to use the restroom but my husband did. He said that the floor was sinking in. Kind of leary that he might fall through the floor. No toilet paper was provided and no light in the restroom. At night he had to rely on passing street lights to provide lights. I'm not sure if the bus was having A/C issues because it was on intermittently. There were times where it was unbearably hot and felt a little bad for the toddler behind us who was sleeping and I'm assuming was restless because it was so hot on the bus. I think next time I'm better off saving 200 and driving my rental to the Keys and spend the night and spend more than 6 hours at the Keys.

  • Used the tour for transportation as did not feel like driving 5 hours there and back. Was worth it. Smooth interesting bus ride, with great views on either side. Comforable and informative.
    Had a full 6 hours from around 11 30 to 5 30 ish to do it all. Mostly, walked around the pier, Southern most point, had lunch, and walked Duval street. Drive home was pleasant, fell asleep after sunset.

    Don't drive it.... BUS it... if going for a day. There are tours you can do to add, but since i have been before did not need.

  • No chargering ports on bus, tour guide was forceful in what she was selling regardless of the fact we already bought a tour before hand. Seats were rough for such a long ride. Snorkeling was great.Tour guide did not give us appropriate directions of where to find fury check in.Serveral of usgot lost
