Just as easy as any other time of the year.

Weather-wise? It could suck, it could be warm, it could rain, it could be sunny. . . .

Annie,

just go to Keywestexpress.com. Very easy to book online - it goes from either Fort Myers or Naples, so you have plenty of choice.

A good option for you, rather than driving 7 hours!

Enjoy!

Rosie

The ferry is passenger only, it does not take vehicles. The boats look nice but I've heard that the ride can get rough at times.

The Ferry actually goes to Fort Myers Beach and not Fort Myers. They are two different places. If you want to go to Fort Myers you will need to get a rental car once you get to Fort Myers Beach.

Flying from Ft. Myers to Orlando is quite expensive and with all the airport waiting times you might get there faster if you drive. It's about a 3 ~ 3.5 hour drive.

I would drive....forget the ferry particularly since you cann ot take a car. I have had many friends tale the ferry and the majority of them say never again....it is rough, noisy and not a great cruise. If you have the time Annie, make the drive as it is beautiful and if you come up through the Everglades it is amazing.
