Owners of this Boat provide a great ride to the island with a bit of a tour and wildlife watching within the time constraints. We very much enjoyed the trip and when we go back will look to Hemingway Water Shuttle first.

Absolutely the best trip ever by water to keywadin. Was a better economical choice to travel with Hemingway shuttle versus renting a boat for the day. Steve took the quickest route to keywadin in shallow calm waters. He and his wife Val are so friendly...More
