This is just a short bridge that connects Sanibel Island to Captiva Island. There is a small beach just to the left of the pass which provides limited parking for a fee. If the tide is low you are able to walk under this connection bridge. Enjoy.

On previous visits we have taken this pass by small boat and used it to visit all around the island; although the leeward side is less volatile than the ocean side. There is a strong current and parents need to be mindful of their children as they venture into the water. Fishing with the tide flow is best. This time... More

What a beautiful place North Captiva is. Perfect for those sunset's. Parking is another thing though better rent a golf cart or scooter. Beaches are great for shelling ok for swimming but this is a shelling resort island.

Always a great spot. Throw a line in, enjoy the sun, peace and quiet. We like to visit in the fall when the munchkins are back in school.

We stopped here when we saw people doing the Sanibel Stoop :) The water was VERY dangerous to get in, but there were men fishing on the shore lines. Seashells were abundant!!

All of North Captiva Island is very peaceful and quiet but being near water makes it even better. Awesome place for shelling. The current through the pass is very strong so don't go swimming in there and anchor your boat or you'll keep drifting. Get yourself over to the Cayo Costa side of the pass, because that's where the shells... More

Very nice beaches. The sand is not as powdery as Fort Myers Beach but it is still nice, and very peaceful. Good spot for shelling too!
