If you are searching for an island vacation that is different from all others, then search no more for you have stumbled upon "What the Shell". Located on Florida’s “Sun Coast”, North Captiva Island is a private paradise. Accessible only by boat, scheduled ferry, small airplane or helicopter, transportation on its sand roads is by golf cart, (one is included with the house), bicycle or on foot. Miles of pristine beaches, mangroves and a natural preserve comprise this mostly undeveloped island where swimming, sunbathing, shelling, fishing, hiking, kayaking, bicycling, bird and wildlife watching are but a few of the preferred activities.

Surrounded by three distinct bodies of water, Pine Island Sound, the Gulf of Mexico and Captiva Pass, North Captiva Island affords world class fishing both from its shores and just offshore. Manatees, dolphins and the occasional sea otters are daily visitors to our island. Close, yet so different, North Captiva is but a short boat ride from the nearby islands of Sanibel, Captiva, Cayo Costa and Cabbage Key of “Hamburger in Paradise” fame.

Included in your rental fee is unlimited use of the North Captiva Island Club. The Club includes a large, heated family pool, an adult lap pool, a jacuzzi, fitness room, 2 Har-Tru tennis courts, a basketball hoop, outdoor bar and restaurants. Kayaks, bicycles, beach chairs and umbrellas are available without an additional charge.
