Peaceful and Rejuvenating

This is a beautiful place to visit. Shelling is great. The other tourists (Christmas, 2015) were family oriented, as we were. Peaceful, calm, rejuvenating!

We found all of our great shells to take back home in this area. There are also rocks that make for some great beach photos. Parking can be tough, and it can get kind of crowded at low tide when the shells are plentiful, but it was worth the stop.

Less people, all natural, wild life, shelling, a dolphin here and there, boats passing by, the sun on your face, shells in your bag, and a big smile on your face. Yea, that's Captiva Pass.

Great stop for pictures or you could spend the day at the beach. Parking might be limited so plan ahead.

Very nice beach w/ paid parking area. Tends to be busiest in late morning to late afternoon and parking gets to be difficult then. Lots of good fishing here and tons of nice shells are everywhere! You can see manatees here as well horseshoe crabs (and lots of birds!). The water is shallow in most places and there's a large... More

Whether you are out for a cruise, dolphin and bird watching or fishing this is a great spot to be. A wide assortment of wildlife and usually calm waters (check the weather report), The fishing is very diverse. So many species. you'll never be sure what you've caught until you reel it in.

This is just a short bridge that connects Sanibel Island to Captiva Island. There is a small beach just to the left of the pass which provides limited parking for a fee. If the tide is low you are able to walk under this connection bridge. Enjoy.

On previous visits we have taken this pass by small boat and used it to visit all around the island; although the leeward side is less volatile than the ocean side. There is a strong current and parents need to be mindful of their children as they venture into the water. Fishing with the tide flow is best. This time... More
