there will be many boats there so plan to arrive early to claim your spot. If you plan to stay long on the ocean side, make sure to note the tide schedule for your return to the boat. The boat side is calm with no wake allowed. So, you can enjoy swimming. The ocean side is usually empty allowing for... More

My husband and I visit Marco every November and one of our jaunts is renting a pontoon to visit Keewaydin Island for the day. Shelling is fun, and every visit is different. We go in November so it isn't too crowded and spend the afternoon.

Keewaydin was kind of disappointing. It was SUPER busy and really crowded. We mostly stayed along the ocean near the tip of the island, and our visit was a short one. As I said, tons of people, but some beermonkeys were blasting loud fast latino rap or something, dancing grotesquely, thrusting their hips forward and making the beach a terrible... More

Docked our pontoon boat here so that we could swim, snorkel and relax. Found a lot of nice shells here.

We went to this island as part of a Sea Shelling tour. The beach is beautiful and the water was warm. You will want to have water shoes tho because of all the sea shells on the beach can hurt your feet as you walk. We found so many shells, it was a great trip and Captain Chaz was the... More

We came to this island as part of a dolphin tour. Beautiful and very few people on it as it is only accessible by boat. Another tour came while we were there.

We rented a boat and made our stop at the Island. We docked on the one side and there were about 8 other boats there. We walked over to the gulf side and not a single person was on the beach. We felt like we had the island to ourselves. The sand has a couple shells but you are able... More

Great fun . We had friends with a boat but you can rent and make a day here. There is usually a hamburger boat there. A pontoon with a grill! Very clean and an elderly couple ran it. Shells and loads of fun. Bring shoes for walking due to standouts. Enjoy!
