Arrive in Key West rested and return to Miami in the evening refreshed when you explore the Keys from the smooth-riding safety and air-conditioned comfort of a luxury touring coach driven by an experienced professional. There is absolutely no better, more economical way to make a side trip from Miami to Key West.
Start your Miami to Key West tour with a free morning pick up at any of the major hotels in Sunny Isles Beach, Miami Beach, or Downtown Miami. Board the modern touring coach and grab one of the soft comfortable seats for the scenic 4-hour drive down the Keys. Settle in with your favorite travel accessories – camera, smart phone, tablet, reading material – as the coach rolls out of Miami and through the Southern Everglades on U.S. Highway 1. When you reach Key Largo and see blue water on both sides of the coach, you are on the famous Overseas Highway and in a different world.
As the coach makes its way down the Keys, the waters of the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico are nearly always in sight. The highway crosses open water on 43 bridges during the trip, but the most memorable crossing of all comes at the jump-off from Marathon Key onto the northern end of the renowned Seven Mile Bridge.
Get your camera ready, because this engineering marvel, made famous in movies like Bad Boys, 2 Fast 2 Furious, and True Lies, gives the feeling of flying low over emerald blue water as the coach glides serenely towards the bridge’s southern end on Little Duck Key. Then listen to the narrated tour and catch glimpses of old Florida as the coach continues down through the lower Keys where blue water, white sand, lush tropical vegetation and easy living still hold the modern world at bay.
Whether you choose to watch the sights roll past, shoot photos or simply nap in cool comfort, you will arrive in Key West around noon rested, refreshed, and ready to explore the island. Take in the Caribbean atmosphere, linger in an outdoor café, go shopping, or see the sights. Visit historic landmarks like the Hemingway House & Museum, the Southernmost Point, the Mel Fisher Treasure Museum, Mallory Square and more.
