From greeting us upon arrival to dropping us off at the end of a beautiful day our Hemingway trip was perfect! The staff was wonderful, the boat was very comfortable & we can’t wait to go to Keewaydin again with the Hemingway Crew.

A definite must do when in Marco! Take the Hemingway shuttle to small secluded island for great shelling and beautiful water. On our way going and coming we saw several dolphins. The owners Steve and Val are sweet family and very knowledgeable. If you take 9am shuttle expect 2 hours only on island if coming back at 12 noon, which was perfect with my 5 year old. Go early in morning at 7:30 am if you want longer day and not so strong of Sun if you are there in August. Just so you know there is no shade or bathrooms on island but the cool water is relief. The Shuttle also rents sand chairs and umbrellas but need to rent when you buy tickets. There are also sometimes vendors on island that come by boat. The Hemingway shuttle has best deal in Marco!

A vacation of our Dreams! First time on Marco Island, first time shellers and we found Junonia!!! Aaa! Kids were praying for it. We will never forget this trip to Keewaydin Island! Thank you! We saw dolphins on a way back, found plenty of rare and beautiful shells. The boat crew was amazing! Thank you!

This is a great way to relax and enjoy a safe way to get to Keewaydin, a small island with no facilities but does have calm clear waters to enjoy the day. The marina they launch from is first rate, the pontoon boat you ride on is well maintained and no matter if you are a Floridian like myself or a visitor you will find this a great way to experience something new. We were there to find new sea treasures and during the summertime shelling is much slower in Florida but still quite fun. It has all been said here in the reviews so pay attention to the facts. It is hot in the summer so you may want to bring some form of shade. We will be back soon and I would recommend this to everyone that can take the heat and can bring some good water shoes to wear on the beach.

Val and Steve made our trip to Keewaydin Island memorable! They both love what they do and it shows. Steve goes out of his way to look for dolphins. We were fortunate to have 4 beautiful dolphins follow us on our return trip to Marco Island - awesome!
