If you are coming to Key West on the Express Ferry from Fort Meyers here are some tips.  Stay overnight one or two nights. there is a lot to do and see here.  There are some very good  bed and breakfasts within walking distance to the Ferry Terminal.  Westwinds Inn and Nassau House are very close, nice, clean, tropical and affordable www.keywestfinest.com.  When you call ahead for your reservations request an early check-in.

The boat leaves at 5:00pm to return to Fort Meyers.  You can usually go at 1:00 to drop off your luggage and get a boarding pass.  That puts you way ahead of the crowd at 5:00.  Bring your swimsuit and have lunch next door at Dante’s and take a dip in their pool while you wait for your ship to sail! Also, take a to-go box with you and have yourself a nice little dinner.  You’ll be glad you thought of it!
