For decades, generations of visitors have made South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island in Florida the vacation destination of choice in which to share treasured moments and make lasting memories. This iconic 330-acre wildlife preserve spans 2.5 miles of pristine beach framing the tranquil waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Your clients will feel at home in an assortment of accommodations, ranging from spacious hotel rooms to charming villas and condos, cottages, and private homes.
Nature enthusiasts will immediately fall in love with Sanibel and Captiva. Captiva and its neighboring sister island, Sanibel, are world-renowned for shelling opportunities—over 230 different types of sea shells wash ashore on the white-sand beaches. Bird lovers will enjoy watching the osprey, bald eagles, pelicans, and over 200 other species soar overhead. Nearby, J.N. ‘Ding’ Darling Wildlife Refuge offers more opportunities to see the various wildlife that call Southwest Florida home.
Dolphins and manatees also call the warm blue waters surrounding South Seas their home, and visitors will see them from the balcony of their Harbourside guestroom, as they walk along the full-service marina filled with beautiful yachts, and along the beaches.
No stay in Southwest Florida is complete without getting out on the water. Captiva Cruises makes it easy with a variety of cruises, including the aptly named Dolphin & Wildlife Adventure Cruise and the Sunset Cruise aboard a 40 ft. catamaran sailboat. Onsite fishing guides provide years of local experience to help anglers enjoy the world-class fishing, which includes snook, redfish, grouper, and even tarpon. South Seas Island Resort is home to the Colgate Offshore Sailing School, America’s No. 1 sailing school, which offers sailing programs for any skill level, as well as 2-hour sailing clinics for an introduction. And, of course, there are watersports including waverunners, parasailing, kayaking, and stand-up paddleboarding.
When staying on land, golfers will enjoy the resort village’s private 9-hole executive course, The Captiva Course. The Pavel & Blackwood Tennis Academy oversees 11 tennis courts and provides clinics, lessons, and matchmaking for guests.
