Answers to Frequently Asked Questions:
The crossing from Rockwood to Kineo takes approximately 10 minutes.
The Kineo Shuttle does not have a ticket booth; you will be paying the captain in cash as you board.
In good weather the shuttle will accommodate 10 passengers; the captain may elect to carry fewer passengers in rough weather. If for any reason there are more passengers waiting to board than can be safely ferried across on a scheduled trip, the shuttle will return immediately for those left behind.
