Where are we?

Pine Island is old Florida. No high-rises or stop lights here, but lots of things to see and do. While Pine Island offers passive enjoyment and relaxation, it is also a great place for interactivity and exploration.

This vacation home has water access to Gulf of Mexico, Ft. Myers Beach, Sanibel Island and Pine Island Sound. Our place is in Saint James City on the south end of Pine Island. This island is only 17 miles long by 2 miles wide (and not a single traffic light). You can get to any attraction on the island by car or boat in minutes.

What Is There To Do?

Enjoy kayaking in the sheltered waters of Matlacha pass in the Pine island Sound Aquatic Preserve, Tarpon Bay in the Ding Darling Preserve, or kayak by the full moon or hit Matlacha at sunset. Since all the guides at Gulf Coast Kayak Company (239-283-1125) are naturalists and kayak instructors, it is the perfect experience for nature-lovers and paddlers.

Camp out at several island facilities or head for the Cayo Costa Island State Park (accessible only by boat). No crowds here and the shelling can be fabulous.

Have a 'Cheeseburger in Paradise' on Cabbage key which inspired the song. Every square inch of the interior is papered with $1 bills and more than $10,000 which fall off every year is donated to charity.

Dig a lost civilization: Join archeologists from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) Museum of Natural History as they excavate or do a Saturday tour of the Randall Research Center (239 283 2062), Pineland and its Calusa Indians settlement, mound and canal system.

Pick Your Own Tomatoes: Lee County is blessed with two tomato crops each year. Pick your own, ripened to juicy perfection by the sub-tropical sun, at Island U-Picks.

Mango Mania: Pine Island is home to the Mango Mania Tropical Fruit Festival every July. The island also commercially grows guavas, longans, lychees, sapodillas, jak fruit and a variety of other rare fruits you can pick up at local fruit stands.

Tour Matlacha: Try the 'fishingest bridge in the world'. Tour the arts and crafts shops and catch local artists at work. This tiny Technicolor village is reminiscent of Key West in the 50's. Fresh seafood right off the boat. Several excellent restaurants.


Great fishing everywhere! Hire a guide for a few days to learn local hotspots, baits and lures, then take off on your own. One of our favorite spots is the Redfish Pass area north of Captiva Island. To the north is Cayo Costa, accessible only by boat with un-crowded white sand beaches, camping ,shelling ,treking and surf fishing.

Some of the best fishing in the world for Trout, Snook, Redfish, Snapper, Cobia, Tarpon, King Mackerel and Grouper. Less than 1 hour by water to the Boca Grande Tarpon Tournament.

Tarpon Bay

The entrance to Tarpon Bay is about two kilometers due south from where your home canal enters Pine Island Sound. Tarpon Bay provides a plentiful supply of the two dominant inshore fishing habitats, grass flats and Mangrove edges. Most of it is 2 to 10 feet deep (perfect) and covered with turtle grass (also perfect). It is completely surrounded by mangroves (perfect, perfect, perfect). Fish the mangrove edges on high and changing tides. Fish the potholes and channels in the flats on low tides . Generally, moving tides are better than slack tides. Tarpon Bay is a microcosm of Pine Island Sound. You could fish here for years without finding all the sweet spots!

Locals go to Tarpon Bay to catch 'whitebait', a family of small shad-like fish from 2 to 4 inches long. This is THE bait if you are fishing for a big cookout and want to load up. A cast net with 1/4 inch mesh is best but you can also catch them on small gold hooks with or without bait. You can catch anything on whitebait.

Tarpon Bay is located within the Ding Darling Wildlife Preserve. This is an amazing recreational area that rents kayaks and paddle boats. In these you can access miles and miles of mangrove creeks and the. The numbers and types of exotic sea and shore birds found here is breathtaking. Bald Eagles, Ospreys, Pelicans, Wood Storks, Egrets, Blue Heron, Flamingo and many more abound. Just look and photograph, don't touch or bother nests and young!

The fishing in these creeks is amazing too. It is a real thrill to flip a bait up under the edge of the mangroves and get an explosion like a quarter stick of dynamite. Bringing in the big ones in the confines of these creeks is a real challenge. Great for fly fishing too.

If you like lure fishing, all the old bass fishing standbys work great. It is always a good idea to drop by a tackle shop and check out the latest hot lure. Shrimp is always good too. They don't have to be live but keep them fresh.
