Hmmmm, 75 MPH in your car on the interstate, versus, 10-15mph across the water, in a ferry. Driving is definatly faster, and far cheaper. The fuel consumed to move that ferry at 15mph thru the water, for that distance would likely supply you with many dozens of round trips from Naples to Nawlins in your car.

As far traveling by boat from Naples to Nawlins, first you need a boat. Second, the size of the boat you obtain will have much to do with the route you take.......

I don't know. It is about 800 miles by land and 600 miles by sea. By land you will be traveling at least three times faster speed wise. It may be more fun but definitely not faster. The boat trip would take like 40 hours or more.

Have you ever been on one of those gambling casino boats that run out of Ft Myers Beach? A three-four hour dinner cruise, and half (or more) of the people are so seasick, it's a truly disgusting thing to witness....and thats a short trip out about thirty miles, and back in.

Imagine an 800 mile two day trip across the open gulf waters, in a small ferry, pitching and rolling. I think 'fun' would be the last word used to describe it.
