I wanted tomdock my boat and use the facilities. I was denied--even after I expressed my willingness to pay the $30 mooring fee. The manager seemed to take pleasure in denying the very service in which he is business to make money. There are certain people-- and he is one of them. Too bad Butch Ricky launches his kayak guide... More

I read some really bad reviews for the marina at Castaways, so I had to write that I had a great experience with them. We stayed at one of the cottages and we rented both bikes and kayaks from them. The man that was there was not over friendly, but was respectful and efficient. If you rent a kayak there,... More

Stop by and book a fishing guide/tour. The bay side is prettier than the gulf with bird watching, dolphins up close and the occasional otter. There's fresh water access so cleaning your fish or boat isn't a problem.

The Castaways marina is a small group of docks with a small launch ramp.We satyed in one of the Castaways cottages, and although we did not use the marina, we visited it and it extremely scenic. It is on the bay and therefore the water is calm. The dock area is full of pelicans of more than one type hat... More

My husband and I used the marina at castaways. Our experience using the ramp initially was okay. The marina is a little small but were happy that we could use the ramp and store our trailer for the week. We stayed nearby and had a wonderful week on captiva. When I went to retrieve our trailer and wait for my... More

To be clear, this review deals with the marina portion and the renting of kayaks. This would be my second experience here and another bad one at that. Pulled into the marina portion with friends to rent two kayaks (I had my own on the van.) Price for two single rentals $20 for two hours, fair enough, lets do this!... More
