About Captiva Island
Things to doCaptiva Island’s main attraction is its beautiful stretch of beaches. Walk along the fine sands of popular Captiva Beach and Turner Beach for incredible shelling. Kids can be kept busy gathering beautiful pastel-colored seashells and wading in the warm waters, while adults will enjoy swimming, sailing and snorkeling.
For adventure-seekers, fishing charters and wildlife tours provide opportunities for guided fun around the shimmering, turquoise waters of Captiva Island. Santiva Saltwater Fishing offers a variety of tours including fishing trips, snorkeling excursions and sightseeing tours. The open waters are teeming with wildlife, and you might catch Tarpon, Redfish, and Shark or spot manatees and bottlenose dolphins swimming. Birds like hawks, eagles and osprey are always present flying overhead.
Out of the water, rent bikes or switch from sandals to hiking boots to explore scenic Redfish Pass and Captiva Pass. Visit the 110-year-old Captiva Chapel-by-the-Sea to slow down and see a slice of the island’s history, or treasure some time out of the sun at the luxurious spa at Tween Waters Inn. This beach paradise is as beautiful at night as it is during the day, and you can enjoy unbelievable stargazing from the deck of all Captiva Island vacation rentals.
ShoppingThere is no need to go off island for great shopping as Captiva Island has a variety of quaint, unique shops clustered along Captiva Drive and Andy Rosse Lane in the Village Center. Jungle Drums Gallery is the perfect place to find a special souvenir for your stay as it has an unforgettable collection of wildlife art and handcrafted jewelry.
