It is easy to unwind when visiting South Seas. Beautiful waterfront vistas and inviting outdoor areas are a fantastic way for you to sit and enjoy the tranquility. With a sizable wildlife preserve and estuary occupying half of the resort’s 330 acres, the atmosphere is even more laid-back, and you can take in some of the spectacular natural beauty of the surrounding region.

The South Seas Marina has everything you need for the ideal vacation. The Tiva Kids Camp, kayak and fishing expeditions, two major swimming pools, a water park, and many other amenities are available on-site. Water activities like jet skiing and parasailing are also available.

A spa is also available, specifically the Kay Casperson Lifestyle Spa and Boutique. It provides various treatments and services, including private or couples massages, skincare, manicures, pedicures, hair care and styling, waxing, cosmetics, and classes like yoga, pilates, and Zumba.

Captiva Island offers lots of entertaining activities for visitors of all ages. The seas of the Gulf of Mexico, San Carlos Bay, Redfish Pass, and Pine Island Sound offer several enjoyable features.

Fishing is a popular pastime in Southwest Florida. Cast your line from the shore, sign up for a Sanibel Island fishing charter, hire a boat or bring your own, and take in the sights and sounds of the US Gulf Coast. South Seas professionals teach fishing techniques, and fishing gear and bait are sold at the Store. South Seas Marina makes it hassle-free to store, access, and service your boat. 

Some other Sanibel Island activities you won’t want to miss include:

  • Participate in water sports with Sunny Island Adventures.
  • Rent a WaveRunner, a kayak, or a paddleboard, go on one of their excursions, or let them take you parasailing above the Gulf of Mexico via Sunny Island.
  • Join Offshore Sailing School for a sailing lesson. In the two marinas, look for manatees in the water.
