We come every time we are on Captiva island. Very laid back marina with good fishing info and nice t-shirts. There are usually manatees at the dock, we saw four including a mom and a young one. Blue and white herons on the dock waiting for an open bait well. Great old Florida place.

What an experience, not only are you just steps from the water but every sunrise is spectacular. Jensen's is owned by 3 brothers and you will meet them all while there. The staff is more than friendly and ready to help with anything. My wife and I were in cottage #9 for a weeks vacation and only ate out 3... More

Low key rustic accommodations fit the bill in this quaint marina cottage menagerie. Bring your coffee down to the dock to watch the manatees play. Pelicans roost aboard the boats. Quiet. Only 1.5 blocks to town - walk to restaurants, coffee, lil store, - best of all is the Mucky Duck at the beach (water sports galore). Jensen's supplies beach... More

We stay here annually. Our reservation is already made for next year. This is an old style fishing resort, but you do not need to be a fisherman to appreciate the quaint cottages, extensive docks and boating area, and the activity. If you are planning an extended stay (a week or two) and are seeking a cottage of a particular... More

Jensen's Twin Palm Resort on Captiva Island is a great location to book a great fishing trip with a great guide. Capt. Nelson Diaz is who I would recommend for a great day on the water and he has never disappointed when it comes to getting you hooked up with big Red's, Snook, Trout or Tarpon. He is very knowledgeable... More

I wanted a getaway and had always heard about the shelling on Sanibel and Captiva. I chose Jensen's Twin Palm cottages after reading reviews and seeing their website. There was an old-fashioned, uncomplicated charm that spoke to me. And that's exactly what I got. From first booking and speaking on the phone with their friendly staff, to the last day... More

We've rented boats from Jensen's over the years, and always enjoyed the tropical marina set up they have. We stayed an extra night on Captiva recently, and decided to stay in one of Jensen's little cottages. It was immaculate. I mean, SUPER clean. We just checked out of a really nice condo at South Seas, and I think Jensen's was... More

This historic fish camp is an endangered species in Florida. Captiva is special, thus limited in availability and affordability. Jensen's has an array of cabins, some of which are historic that are clean, cozy and updated without losing the character. The location is walkable to restaurants, beach, groceries and fishing. The Jensen family is cordial and eager to please. Boat... More
