We went across one time. It was interesting, but not interesting enough for us to ever do it again. I'm much more enjoy going around through the keys.
Going around adds a lot of time, most likely 7 to 8 days. And the ride cutting across Florida Bay is boring, but the run thru the islands south of Marco is fun.
