How to Get to Old Town Trolley Tours or Conch Tour Train

There are 3 cruise ship piers in Key West:
Mallory Square
The Westin ‘Pier B’
The Navy Mole

To return to any of the piers, adults must have both ship’s card (which usually doubles as your room key) and a valid photo identification (passport, driver’s license, etc.)

Mallory Square

Mallory Square is the closest to Key West’s downtown area. It is a short walk into town—just look for the ‘Welcome to Mallory Square’ archway, and walk through.

Pier B

Pier B is where most of the Royal Caribbean ships are docked. It is close to downtown but is 200-250 yards from the pier to the tour locations. This distance is not affected by whether you take the excursion from the ship or if you walk downtown to take the regular tours.

The Navy Mole

The Navy Mole requires transportation to get into town. You will be met on the pier by trolleys and given shuttle service into town. There is no cost to this service. It is provided by the city of Key West. You will be transported to Mallory Square (in front of the Sponge Market). Walking is not an option, due to Homeland Security regulations. The Navy is still active on this pier.

Foreign Languages

We offer a 60-minute, non-stop Key West tour in German, French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese to cruise ship passengers. Please ask at your shore excursion desk or a sales representative when you disembark.
