Local Info


North Captiva , FL , United States

North Captiva Island remains one of the few places left where man and nature coexist in complete harmony. North Captiva was separated from Captiva October 25, 1921 when a hurricane carved out Redfish Pass. Hurricane Charlie separated North Captiva temporarily August 13, 2004 but has since been filled back in with sand and new vegetation.

North Captiva Island is located North of Captiva Island and South of Cayo Costa. Part of the Charlotte Harbor barrier island chain, North Captiva is approximately four miles long and one-half mile wide at the widest extent.

Accessibility to this tropical retreat is just 15 minutes by boat from Captiva or Pine Island. In addition, a 2000-foot, privately owned grass airstrip provides landing space for pilots of light aircraft. Known for its pristine white sand beaches, lush tropical vegetation, extraordinary bird watching and shelling, and unbeatable salt-water fishing.

North Captiva is one of Florida’s few places left which survived unscarred the early days of land grabs and bulldozers. In fact, it is one of the few places where the delicate balance between man and nature has gracefully withstood the passage of time.

Today the osprey still wheel overhead, fish teem just offshore in the Sound, gopher tortoises plod across the savannah, and otter sport in the harbor. These days, North Captiva is home to a growing number of residents and visitors, drawn by the vibrancies of her beauty and unspoiled island atmosphere.
