Originally part of neighboring Sanibel Island to the Southeast, it was severed in 1926 when a hurricane's storm surge created a new channel, Blind Pass.
Captiva Island is an island in Lee County in southwest Florida, located just offshore in the Gulf of Mexico.
Captiva Island, sister to larger Sanibel Island, is just over a small bridge which crosses at Turner Beach. Turner Beach is a great place for catching that prize fish and also for finding colorful shells that these islands are famous for. The beach stretches 5 miles to the northern tip of Captiva Island at Redfish Pass. The islands are actually made out of shells. Sanibell is the most famous island for shelling and shells of many types and sizes are found on beaches. As a general rule the smaller seashells are found on the Lighthouse end of the island chain and the larger ones nearer Captiva and North Captiva. Conch, Junonia, Lightning Whelk, Cockle, Scallops, Murex, Tulip, Olive, Coquina, are among the species you may expect to find.
