We had the Best Fishing Guide ever! Josh, based out of Jensen's Marina. Josh was so personable and had such a great attitude & passion for fishing unlike some guides that are just out there collecting the money & not putting you on fish. Josh knew exactly were to go and put us on fish immediately. We maxed out on...

Our family rented pontoon boats at the Marina for a special day trip while visiting in Sanibel/Captiva. I can't speak highly enough of the staff. The equipment functioned well & the staff was highly efficient, professional, and accommodating to our group.

Just wanted to commend all of the people at Jensen's for their device and helpful information while my family vacationed on Captiva the week of July 16th. We rented fishing equipment and everybody there was super helpful in giving fishing tips for both the bay and in the ocean. Every time we stopped, the people there were friendly and very...

Stayed 3 nights. On approach the accommodation doesn't look anything special, but the rooms are great. Spotlessly clean, well decorated, great aircon, superb outside dining area all screened in so no bugs!! The guys running Jensens are fantastic, very friendly and helpful and laid back about everything. Superb location for everything. 2 min walk to grocery store and restaurants. 5...

Grandma, Mom, Dad and granddaughter.... We spent 3 nights in Cabin #4 (which we named Tidey Whitey) and it was a sheer pleasure! Super clean and comfortable! I would stay here again in a heart beat:-) We were within easy walking distance of the Gulf beach, restaurants and shops.

Thank you fellow reviewers for helping me find this great lodging on Captiva. I stayed in cabin #6, and loved having such a perfect layout for my three night stay. The location is perfect, the owners welcoming, and the setting definitely one of a kind as well as being reminiscent of a Florida past worthy of being remembered! I loved...

Didn't know what to expect staying at a marina😁. But Jensens was a find of the perfect sort. Tucked away behind the palms but close enough to all the action on captiva. Best .. Manatees swim close to the docks each morning so we took our coffee down for the view. Simply furnished but clean and location location location. We...

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...
