Key West Boat Shuttle to Fort Myers - Roundtrip

Key West Boat Shuttle to Fort Myers - Roundtrip

Welcome aboard an express catamaran to sail from beautiful Key West to Ft. Myers Beach with a roundtrip return.

Sanibel/Captiva is nearby for nature lovers - as well as the River District in Downtown Fort Myers, if you would rather stroll the historic streets Edison & Ford once roamed.

Enroute, enjoy a cool drink at the bar or have a bite from the galley on a high speed, jet powered catamaran. Stay one night, or plan an extended stay. Either way, with this express shuttle to Fort Myers, getting there and back is half the fun!

After being welcomed aboard by your friendly crew, this safe, fun and fast way to travel between Key West and Ft. Myers Beach is non-stop - approximately 3.5 hours buoy to buoy!

Make yourself comfortable within climate controlled cabins or take in the sunshine and soft breezes of the Gulf of Mexico from the exterior sun decks.

The Islands of Ft. Myers Beach and Sanibel/Captiva are popular destinations for both families and singles alike.

You will arrive in style at a local Marina dock in Ft. Myers Beach. Perched on the water's edge of a thriving wildlife aquatic preserve, the Marina is a great starting point for your visit to fabulous Ft. Myers Beach.
