With archeological histories dating back thousands of years, the Barrier Islands in Lee County have a varied and colorful history. The Calusa Indian tribes thrived and co-existed in this natural habitat paradise. Untouched until the arrival of the Spaniards and then dwindling to only a few remaining of that heritage.
Tall sailing ships frequented these islands as a refuge from rough & stormy seas. The islands may have been a haven for such infamous pirates as Jose Gaspar.
As time passed, North Captiva was reborn into a plantation and then into a base of operations for the Punta Gorda Fish Company. And now, North Captiva Island is a one of a kind vacation destination.
