Visit one of Southwest Florida’s most beautiful beaches for sun, fun, shelling and more! Only accessible by boat, Out Island is home to some of the world’s best shelling! After departing from Captiva Island, guests will enjoy a narrated cruise about the area’s history and wildlife by our experienced, USCG-certified captains. Once on the island visitors may enjoy shelling, fishing, birdwatching and snorkeling on Out Island.
The half-day trip (3 hours) includes a 30-minute boat ride each way with approximately two hours on the beach. Once the boat arrives on the island, guests will depart and board the boat near the water’s edge via a 4-steep ladder. Guests should be prepared to be in knee-deep water while boarding and deboarding the boat.
Passengers are encouraged to bring along anything they would like to be comfortable at the beach, keeping in mind there are no amenities on the island itself. Food, drinks, small coolers, chairs, umbrellas, towels, sunscreen, snorkels, fishing rods (and a license too if applicable) are a few recommendations. The boat, which includes a bathroom, will stay at the island as there are no amenities on the island.
