Trip to Key West

Going to be in Naples the middle of September. What is the best way to get to Key West, someone suggested a boat trip or should we drive. I see pros and cons of both. Has anyone ever taken the trip by boat?

FYI, I took the boat out of Marco Island (in season) to KW. I will drive the next time .... WHY? The boat trip and heat take a toll on the body.

I have a quesy stomach ... and Key West can be hot in the afternoon .... and my body felt abused by the short time to get back on the boat to return.

The Key West Express can be a rough ride at any time. Going down is usually better than coming back. I know several that have gotten sea sick on the way back. A 1 or 2 night stay is usually enough for most people. Even me and I'm a partier. The last group of friends went down on the Express in Feb. and it was a rough ride then too. Just an FYI. Enjoy your stay in SW FL this Fall. Shark Valley in the Everglades is a great place for alligator viewing too!
