Pine Island Sound features the barrier islands Cayo Costa, Captiva, and Sanibel Islands, as well as the smaller islands of Cabbage Key and Useppa. All of them are very attractive destinations, as well as just boating in these waters. Beautiful turquoise water, pristine beaches, and a variety of dockside restaurants make the Pine Island Sound a must to explore.
Whether you visit one of the beaches or cruise the waterways – it is an unforgettable trip, especially if you stop at one of the dockside restaurants in their typical Floridian settings.
It is tradition that you sign a $1 bill and fix it to the wall or ceiling of the old-style restaurants of Cabbage Key Inn and Barnacle’s Phil. You’ll see – their walls and ceilings are covered with them!
Travel time is 45 to 90 minutes to go as far south as Captiva Island, depending on the boat and the speed you choose.
Enjoy great fishing in the passes between the individual barrier islands. Just anchor, fish and enjoy the day!
