We were lucky to be staying by Red Fish Pass but you could easily walk to drive there to bird watch, fish, or stroll along the pathway. The Captiva side is limited to South Seas residents and guests but if you are staying there, you must go see the Dolphins and diving Pelicans.

this isn't even called fishing, its called catching. I have been coming here with my family for over 20 years and the fishing is like no place in the world. you can catch everything from a shark to a small red fish. this is a great place for an experianced fisherman and beginners

The public access is quite a ways from the Pass but it is a great walk! Plenty of shells to find along the way! One day when we walked down there we enjoyed watching several dolphins fishing. The next time we walked down there we saw a few people fishing and saw them catch some sheep heads. Next time I... More

scenic, clean, and full of nature. It's the furthest point on captiva island. Be sure to grab a cocktail at the bar on the beach on your way back. You may have to be staying at the south seas resort though?

At the very northern tip of Captiva Island, Redfish Pass is the waterway between The Gulf of Mexico to the West and Pine Island Sound to the East. During our stay at SSIR we take daily walks from our condo along the gulf side, with rest breaks on benches along Redfish Pass where we luxouriate in the lovely tropical breezes,... More

Love walking the beach area at Redfish Pass - after a storm it is one of the best spots to find unusual shells and it's one of my favorite locations to relax when on Captiva! I highly recommend making the stroll along the beach at South Seas Resort to visit this unique spot. Beautiful place to be at sunset!

To view Redfish Pass from land, one either has to be a the very south end of North Captiva Island or at South Seas Resort. We have been traveling to South Seas for 25 years. It is an enchanted place for lovers, for families and for couples. It is a place everyone needs to put on their bucket list.

While it's not quite the same as the original incarnation of South Seas Plantation, the pass itself and the look is still the same! I remember standing on the beach at the tip of Captiva and it raining like cats and dogs on the island across the pass! It looked like a curtain of rain as it passed while we... More
