Bill and I are outdoor & wildlife lovers! We fish, hike and travel when we can. Growing up in Venice, Florida I have watched the state change from 'Old Florida' to 'New Florida'. North Captiva is a wonderful reflection of my childhood and the free spirit of 'Old Florida'. No worries, no snow (whats that?) and no shoes! I just love my cottage and all the island offers.
If you love nature then this is for you! North Captiva is home to many native species of animals. The gopher tortoise is fun to watch grazing and strolling down the shell roads. Ospreys monitor the island from their giant nests where the babies call for their meals of fresh trout. Woodpeckers, herons and ibis meander everywhere. Even Indigo Buntings have stopped on our lawn during their migrations. Dolphins and manatees are just off the beach and the fishing is some of the best you will find. Hiking, shelling, swimming will keep you entertained and water sport equipment is available at Boats and Fun. Exploring the island by golf cart is fabulous fun!
