Barnacle's Island Resorts has many vacation rental properties to accommodate groups of all sizes. For more information on our vacation rental properties, please visit our website at www.Barnaclesislandresort.Com If you're staying on the island for a while and want to bring your own boat, no problem. We offer dock rentals as well. Pine Island Sound has some of the best fishing in the world. We offer many different kinds of fishing charters so you can catch whatever it is you want to catch. Being that we are based right at the best water front location, Pineland Marina, you are litterally in prime fishing grounds the moment you leave the docks! Barnacle's Kayak Rentals offer you access to the Caloosa Blueway and an up close in personal experience of local wildlife in its natural, undisturbed habitat. Barnacle's Fishing Charters - Redfish, Trout, Snook, Tarpon, Shark, and all the saltwater fish in between People come from all over the world to fish our waters. When you arrive at Pineland Marina, you'll see why some of the best guides in Florida call it their home. You'll catch a wide variety of fish on every trip. Barnacle's offers the best inshore and offshore fishing trips on the Islands. Spend a half day or full day with one of our experienced guides. We are very close to the neighboring islands of Captiva, Cayo Costa, and Boca Grande which is known as the Tarpon Capital of the world. Visit the secluded Florida state park beaches that are only accessible by boat. This island wildlife preservation is home to rare bobcats, Bald Eagles, sea turtles, gofer tortoises and many more creatures. North Captiva offers you an exclusive opportunity to explore these undeveloped state park beaches. Barnacle's Guided ECO-Tours Our guided kayak eco-tours are a great way to explore the waters on Pine Island Sound. Adventures offers a 2 1/2 hour trip exploring our amazing eco-system and a change to get up close and personal with our many resident dolphins. Barnacle's Golf Cart Rentals If you are visiting North Captiva, Barnacles Island Adventures has golf cart rentals available daily, weekly and monthly. There are no motored vehicles permitted on the island, so if you're staying for a while, this is something you may want to check into. There is no grocery store on the island. So if you're staying for a few days, we encourage you to grab plenty of pantry items prior to your trip over. However, if you do forget something or run out of anything, we offer a grocery service: write down a list of items you need, and we will go back to the mainland to pick them up for you. Barnacle's restaurant has a variety of dishes from seafood, burgers, pasta and our famous black beans and rice to our home made key lime pie. Our Ice cream shop carries only the best, Queenie's Ice Cream, home made ice cream made fresh with locally grown ingredients.

Great Food, Great Atmosphere

We stayed on North Captiva for a week in February and loved Barnacles. We ate a ton of different things from the menu (blackened Grouper, Fish Tacos, Black Beans and Rice, Conch Fritters) and everything was excellent. The new owners are doing a great job, and they had just hired a new head chef who... read more

We were on a fishing charter and decided to have lunch here. The food was excellent and the service very good. We had the sampler platter and the seafood was fresh and well prepared. It tasted even better seated outside under the warm sunshine. There is also meals for land lovers. A real hidden treasure. Experience it if you get... More

My wife and I love boating all around Pine Island. If we are on the west side This is frequently a stop. It's only a few miles from Captiva Island but it is world's apart. You can only get there by boat or small plane so that's the way the food gets there. Captiva is quite upscale - this is... More

You HAVE to go. That's it. No argument. Good bar food. Sweet little shop at the top of the stairs. Nice, nice staff. Outside seating. Games for the kids. It's a slice of life and not to be missed.

My husband and I got married on North Captiva Island January 24, 2015 - with the help of Barnacle Phils! Not only were they amazingly accommodating in hosting our wedding reception, they also had the chairs and arch for us to use for our ceremony on the beach. They delivered and picked up the chairs and arch, on the opposite... More

We docked our boat on a very busy-lovely sunday afternoon looking forward to just getting a quick beer and coke. Maybe i'm blind;but i never found a tiki bar to purchase a quick drink. We decided to leave thirsty. Oh well, it still looked like a nice place to stop and dock. If anyone can help me find the tiki... More

Love the outdoor thatched dining pavilion and island atmosphere. Great, friendly staff. Won't find a nicer spot in this remote island location. The food is good. Tacos with mahi mahi, burgers, grouper sandwiches. Prices are high, so do be prepared. 2 fish tacos were $18. The burger was $14. Coconut shrimp -7 for $15. This is fair for a location... More
