About the neighbourhood
North Captiva Island remains one of the few places left where man and nature coexist in complete harmony. North Captiva was separated from Captiva October 25, 1921 when a hurricane carved out Redfish Pass. Hurricane Charlie separated North Captiva temporarily August 13, 2004 but has since been filled back in with sand and new vegetation. North Captiva Island is located North of Captiva Island and South of Cayo Costa. Part of the Charlotte Harbor barrier island chain, North Captiva is approximately four miles long and one-half mile wide at the widest extent. Accessibility to this tropical retreat is just 15 minutes by boat from Captiva or Pine Island. In addition, a 2000-foot, privately owned grass airstrip provides landing space for pilots of light aircraft. Known for its pristi...
How to get there
North Captiva Island is only accessible by private plane (for homes that have use of the runway - ours does not) and boat/water taxi. There are two scheduled water taxi services that serve the island. We recommend you use Island Girl Charters to avoid the masses at North Captiva Island Club (NCIC).
