Fort Lauderdale man trying to start daily Marathon-to-Cuba ferry service
Feb. 17, 2015: With travel restrictions to Cuba eased since last year, a Fort Lauderdale-based company is looking to start a ferry service from the Marathon City Marina to Havana, Cuba, by the end of the year.
Catamaran broker Brian Hall, owner of KonaCat, said he’s confident he can get clearance for his 200-passenger catamaran to travel from the Florida Keys to Cuba twice a day. He hasn’t decided the number of days a week it would run. A four-hour one-way trip would cost $169 or ($338 round trip).
Ferry service between the Keys and Cuba was huge before the U.S. government halted travel to Cuba shortly following the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.
Hall said he’s wanted to start roundtrip service to Cuba from the Florida Keys after a 2011 business trip to Havana.
