All About North Captiva Island
North Captiva is a private island with miles of perfect beaches, no cars, no crowds, just natural paradise. Just off the coast of Southwest Florida, North Captiva is home to varied wild and sea life.
Two scheduled ferry companies provide access to the island’s vacation homes and residences. Private water taxi captains are also available to provide transportation to and from the island for your vacation. Quiet (and fun!) electric golf carts and foot power are your transportation around the island, this helps keep the island “green” so to speak.
The shelling, kayaking, and exploring that await you on North Captiva Island are only rivaled by the soothing call of the smooth Gulf waves whispering along the shores… They will call out to you too- put the biz books away and read that perfect “beach read,” leave the cell phone at the house, just one more swim in the sea, just one more sunset, just one more week here in Paradise.
Three quarters of this little gem island are uninhabited with sandy nature trails carved in criss-cross paths that all lead to the sea… perfect places to explore, wander, turn up undiscovered treasures, relax. Combined with fine dining at the local restaurants, quaint shopping, and private club facilities the island is the perfect authentic beach retreat destination.
Leaving the mainland world 5 miles away will offer you an amazing insight into what you really need; the beach, your people, your foods and supplies, your imagination perhaps, your time off.
