The Key West Express (photo above) is a high speed catamaran that takes travelers from Fort Myers Beach to Key West in less than four hours. It is presently Florida’s only long distance coastal above-water boat.
I am sad to say the Cloud 10 Bahamas Ferry, which was a 365-passenger Swath ferry no longer runs from Palm Beach to Grand Bahama Island. Maybe it was a little too soon to convince vacationers this was the way to travel or perhaps Nassau was the needed destination.
Swath boats, with their motors in the bottom of each wing offer a smoother ride than regular craft and even catamaran as people who have traveled on them in Canada and Europe already know. I suspect that when travel restrictions change with Cuba, Florida will have the neatest SWATH ferries going between Key West and Havana.
