About North Captiva Island

Upper Captiva is the original name of our Island Paradise. Most newer residents refer to the island as North Captiva. Over the years the island has been home to fierce Calusa Indians, a pirate hideaway, a tomato plantation, and a fish packing community. The great hurricane of 1921 separated North Captiva Island from its southern neighbor, Captiva.

Unlike Captiva and Sanibel, North Captiva remains natural, without paved roads or streetlights, and without the throngs of tourists. This secluded island is not for everyone - only for those who desire a natural getaway with plenty of activities and time to relax.

Upper Captiva Island is four miles long and 1/2 mile wide at its widest point, which is a private airstrip. Accessibility to this lush tropical island is only by boat or small plane. Two-thirds of our 700 acres are a protected State of Florida wilderness park and wildlife sanctuary for manatees, loggerhead turtles and over one hundred species of migratory birds. The remaining land is made up of a small island community.

Panoramic views of the island and surrounding waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Pine Island Sound and Captiva Pass are available from most island properties. Golf carts, bicycles, and on foot are the ways to explore our island. This is truly one of the few places where the delicate balance between man and nature has withstood the passage of time.
