Do you know of any type of quick transportation from the west coast of Florida to Key West? We are going to be in Florida in October for Family Weekend at our kids college. We would like to go to Key West for a day but don't have the time to drive there. Are there any type of boat shuttles that take you over and back?
Another thought we had was flying into Key West and then if possible taking a boat shuttle back to the Tampa or surrounding area. We don't mind if we have to drive a couple of hours to get back to Tampa. We would, however, then need to rent a car to get to the kids college.
Sorry Dave, there are no boat shuttles to the keys. You can either drive or fly. Flights from Tampa to key west run pretty hefty prices, $298.approx. From Fort myers about $199.approx. Driving is your best bet or i suppose there might be such a thing as chartering a boat.? Hope this helps a little.

There was a boat shuttle from Naples that left early in the morning and returned after sunset, I think it was a 4 hour ride down and 4 hours to return, I'll try to find some information for you and post it.
