From some parts of the country, a flight to Ft. Myers is pretty cheap, but getting on down to Key West is pretty spendy! We have a solution for that too!
Why not ride down with Rum Shop Ryan on the Key West Express? Enjoy a few cocktails and ride down on this fast boat, arriving in style!
The Express is the ferryboat that travels from Ft. Myers Florida to Key West Florida. We are calling this the unofficial first stop on the bar crawl. And with a full bar serving a special drink just for our trip, it’s sure to be a legendary start to a weekend full of fun.
The boat will leave for Key West on Thursday, September 20th and you return anytime you like (The boat doesn’t run on Monday’s and Wednesdays). The ticket is even an open-ended return for you in case you’d like to return right after the crawl for stay awhile!
We have arranged a round-trip ticket price of $115. That’s $34 dollars off the normal $149 price, and they have agreed to donate a portion of the ticket price to Reef Relief!
They have created a web page just for us to sign up on! So go to Key West Express Bar Crawl Page and sign up now!
