    Ahoy Nauti Mates!

    It's time once again for the annual YMKN trip to Key West for Hemingway Days. 

    To keep things simple and allow for maximum flexibility, the Krewe does not manage this event, i.e., you need to make your own travel arrangements and lodging reservations. 

    Where to Stay (or try to get close by):

    Rose Lane Villas and Old Towne Manor

    Options for travel to Key West:

    This part is up to you depending on your preference and budget.  You can drive, fly or take the ferry from Fort Myers.

    Flights: From TPA, United, Silver and American have flights on the 21st and 24th.  From PIE, Allegiant offers flights, but their schedule is limited so as of now, you'd have to fly on the 22nd and 25th.

    Ferry:  There is a ferry from Fort Myers to Key West almost every day.
