  • Easy full-day Key West tour from Miami by bus
  • Enjoy the sights along the dramatic Overseas Highway 
  • Plentiful free time in Key West to explore the town
  • Pickup and drop-off available from selected hotels
What to Expect
Your full-day outing starts with early morning pickup from your downtown Miami, Sunny Isles, or Miami Beach hotel. If staying outside those areas, arrange to meet the bus at a centrally located meeting point. Head east toward the Overseas Highway, the engineering marvel that spans the Florida Keys. Originally built as a train route, the highway was rebuilt in the 1980s. You may recognize Seven Mile Bridge, the most famous bridge along the route, from movies such as 'True Lies,' '2 Fast 2 Furious,' and 'Mission Impossible III.' In Key West, explore the pedestrian-friendly town on your own. Visit the Ernest Hemingway House, hop on the Conch Train Tour, shop the art galleries along Duval Street, or grab a cold beverage and enjoy the laid-back island lifestyle. Those who chose to add on activities such as snorkeling, parasailing, or a glass-bottom boat tour make their way to their selected activity. When your time in Key West is up, board the bus for the return trip home, arriving back in Miami just in time for bed.

Driver was wearing mask, but for the passengers as soon as they boarded the bus they all removed their masks. Some of them were wearing it just only covering their mouth, not covering their noses. My husband and I both felt unsafe the whole time we were on the bus. This is very

We understand your concern. We have signs all over the bus saying masks are required. We also talked with the bus driver and he said he was not aware people had their masks off since he was busy driving. We will make sure he repeatedly asks everyone to keep their masks on! We appreciate the feedback. Be safe!
