Miami Tampa flights

After our cruise gets back to Miami, we want to fly to Tampa... How easy is it to get from the cruise ship to Miami airport? Are there regular Tampa flights?

there are taxis and shuttles running between the port and the airport regularly -- and yes, there are regular flights to Tampa, usually on a smaller turboprop.

It's a flat rate $24+tip by taxi from the cruise port to the airport.

For flights check American airlines ... they run regular jets between Miami and Tampa.

Turbo props are a thing of the past, all jet service to TPA now, just over a four hour drive though too...

Thanks all. Yes we are thinking of renting a car and driving. Economical with two kids and probably faster than going through airport hassles.

Miami--> Tampa is a very popular route with tourists from Brazil, the flights can be quite full sometimes. Rental car is much cheaper for a party of four.

If you make Miami-Tampa in four hours, you probably should be watching your rear-view mirror for blue flashing lights.

MIA-->Tampa with a stop in Port Charlotte is just over 4hrs, no blue lights involved.

We always allow 5 hours ... have to make some personal stops along the way. ;-)
