Assistant Park Manager William Nash

Come out with the family during this slow paced, warm lazy time to fish, swim and hike.  Remember that the Parks is only accessible by boat.  Do not forget to book your passage on the ferry through the parks concessionaire Captiva Cruises (239) 472-5300 or bring your own boat.  Once on the island, please stop into our gift shop and visitor center and say hello to the park rangers and volunteers.  If you visit us between the months of April-October be sure to look out for the turtle tracks as that is the nesting season.  Bring a tent and camp for a night or stay in one of our 12 cabins, or just bring your beach gear and enjoy 9 miles of beach.  There are plenty of shells to be found.  Remember to bring plenty of sunscreen and water.  Most importantly, Just have fun!

The Park is yours to enjoy! The Real Florida, Florida State Parks!

Assistant Park Manager, William Nash
