Captiva’s Historic Village and Santiva Village just over Blind Pass Bridge is where the outdoor action is abundantly within view or easy reach! If shelling, body surfing, fishing, and sunbathing is too tame for your memory book; take a short walk or a minute's drive to Captiva’s Village or Santiva Village for rental boats, sightseeing, & shelling charters/bait shops, restaurants, grocery, souvenir shops and more. Adventurous guests will find parasailing, jet skiing and sport fishing within a minutes drive or walk. Antiquing and a quick drive to Sanibel's J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge could also be in your vacation plans.
