The chapel is a must see on Captiva. A charming slice of Captiva Island history. The chapel is free to visit and open during the fall/winter/spring months for church services.

This is a Beautiful old Chapel, an opportunity to reflex on a time long ago when people worshiped on this small Island. Very well maintained and a nice spot to spend some time. Worth visiting.

We have been to Captiva many times but this was the first time the Chapel was open. The walls have names of all past pastors. The cemetery next to it is a must visit!
