CAPTIVA CRUISES REOPENS AFTER HURRICANE IAN
LIMITED CRUISE SCHEDULE
We are thrilled to welcome new and returning guests with a limited cruise schedule! After Hurricane Ian’s impact in September 2022, our surroundings look different, but we still have amazing history, beautiful water, incredible sunsets and unique wildlife to share with you! We graciously ask for your patience as we adjust the cruise schedule to best accommodate guests.
Safely sharing and appreciating our environment has always been at the core of our mission. While we’ve never taken our piece of paradise for granted, we have an extra special appreciation for cruising around Captiva Island after Hurricane Ian and we know you will too!
Please be courteous of your surroundings while visiting. Many of our neighbors are still in transition after the storm and deserve space and compassion as we all work to restore and appreciate our paradise.

Our other vessels, Santiva and Playtime, are making regular trips. Adventure, our sailing catamaran, is available for private charters at this time.
