North Captiva, also known as Upper Captiva, is an unspoiled tropical paradise off the coast of southwest Florida. A magical oasis just a short boat ride away from today's hectic world... a place to getway from it all. Feel the warm gulf breeze....listen to the gentle sound of the surf.

Island Legends... Once upon an island, North Captiva and Captiva were one continuous stretch of stunning beaches. In a 1921 hurricane, Redfish Pass was created and the two were separated... a new island was born. Tales from long ago tell of the Pirate Gaspar and his treasure sunken off the coasts of the Charlotte Harbour Chain of barrier islands. Gasparilla and Little Gasparilla islands to our north carry on the pirate's name. Legend has it that women of great beauty or nobility, captured by the Pirate Gaspar were held captive on the island which became known as Captiva.

North Captiva Island's one freshwater lake is located in the Safety Harbor Club Neighborhood. Safety Harbor's Clubhouse and community pool border the lake and enjoy the scenic views across the interior island waters.

Land bridged or causeway linked islands cannot compare with the authentic sea island that North Captiva is.

Imagine the 5 miles of island and beaches marvelously buffered from the mainland - the hustle, the bustle of the busy and hectic everyday world.

Leave it behind you on the mainland!
