Having visited the huge ornate cathedrals in St Augustine it was a contrast to visit this simple, white chapel by the sea situated in a garden setting. We did not attend a service, but appreciated the interior and exterior; including the garden area. It was nice that it was open to the public. We will plan to attend a service... More

Great music and great Easter message! The outside seating was in the shade and they made you feel really welcomed! The Captiva Fire Department was on hand to assist any people in need! Very Nice!

Lucky to be here right before Christmas and joined in the Caroling at Chapel by the Sea, all decorated inside and out, and the service was packed, many sat outside. It was simply lovely, Hot cider was served outdoors after the service. Just a lovely way to celebrate the Christmas before the actual day.

Our first visit was at night and it was beautiful decorated for Christmas. We returned next morning and also toured the historical cemetery on site. So quaint and beautiful.

A beautiful and quiet place of worship. We came on a cool night in December so we were there all by ourselves. The Chapel was decorated nicely for Christmas and the outdoors lit up beautifully.
