We rented a pontoon boat from Rose Marina and made the trip to Keewaydin Island... We had a great, relaxing time together as a family! Definitely a fun day trip to make! There are a couple of food boats and an ice cream boat that anchor for part of the day, too. Worth a visit!

We stopped at Keewaydin on our Dreamlander Tour for Dolphins. The tour was great as we saw many Dolphins. We did some shelling on Keewaydin which is accessible only by boat. Beautiful shells, worth the trip. Also learned about a famous person who has a house on the island. Would definitely combine with a dolphin tour unless you plan to... More

The only way to get here is by boat. Enjoy the ride and sights as you go out. Go to the tip where the Gulf meets the inter coastal waterway. Nothing but beaches, turtle nests, and bird beddings. Great place to find shells, and watch dolphins play around you as you swim. Nothing like sitting there without the crowds or... More

We took a boat over on a very crowded day and found the last spot to be had right next to a food boat. It was a lively crowd and fun to just sit on the beach and chill. We swam around the boat for a minute, but it was too dangerous with all the boat traffic; saw a few... More

Lovely boat trip out - we love going to Keeywaydin. The island is small, there are no facilities, you just chill on your boat and enjoy the peace or walk along the shoreline. Sometimes its not quite so peaceful if there are a lot of boats there, especially if some decide they're going to play loud music which they feel... More

We go to this little island often. It's laid back and we meet nice people every time we go there. No bathrooms but some bushes if you need to go.

If you have a boat, this barrier island, especially the South end of Keewaydin Island, is just fantastic to visit. Even though you are in sight of Marco, it feels like a desert island. The white sand is great, you can bring a dog, there are lots of shells to be found, you can picnic and swim and miles of... More

Arrived here by boat from Naples Bay, via The Snook for lunch in Marco Island. Beautiful place to stop, swim and relax. Not sure what it would be like in high season though.

We had a great day on the island! The kids were so happy that we were parked right next to the food and ice cream pontoons. Make sure to bring your chairs and umbrellas, sand toys and cold drinks. The food barge isn't allowed to sell adult beverages.
