Water Activities & Sports

Jump in with both feet

On Captiva Island, water, of course, is all around you. Pine Island Sound on one side, Redfish Pass to the North, surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico. So naturally, we take water adventures very seriously. Any water sport you can imagine, you can find it here. Legendary fishing experiences, hands-on ocean explorations, learn to sail (or race!), or explore our island by kayak, paddleboard, parasail, waverunner, boat, and more. Lessons or rentals. On the water or high above it. South Seas Island Resort is a fun-loving adventure seeker’s dream.


A haven for anglers with some of the finest fishing in Southwest Florida, guests are welcome to fish, surf cast, and shore cast right on property. Learn catch and release or head out on an excursion.
