Captiva Island Welcomes Multigenerational Family Travelers with Activities Fit for Everyone
When it comes to multigenerational family travel, planning the perfect trip means striking a balance between entertaining the children while also appeasing the adults sponsoring the trip.
For families headed to Florida’s Captiva Island, staying at the Sea Oats Luxury Estate sets them up for success with tons of onsite activities, as well as a strategic location ideal for enjoying the destination’s many offerings. From kayaking and sunset cruises to dolphin tours and more, Captiva Island — and Sea Oats in particular — is chock full of family-friendly activities.
At the Estate
Families who love being on the water will get the best of both worlds at Sea Oats Luxury Estate, with direct access to winding intercoastal waterways and a private entrance to the white sand beaches, just steps away. Active family members can launch a stand-up paddleboard or kayak from the back patio and explore a nearby mangrove trail, while those who prefer more relaxation can go fishing from the private dock, soak in the hot tub, or take a refreshing dip in the pool. Sea Oats also comes fully equipped with everything families need to have a great beach day from lounge chairs and umbrellas to games like volleyball and cornhole.
Family Friendly Activities for Everyone to Enjoy on Florida’s Captiva Island
But there’s a lot more than just water-based activities. As the largest luxury vacation rental on both Captiva and Sanibel islands, Sea Oats is also home to a tennis court that doubles as a pickleball/half-basketball court. And for a family-friendly nightcap, there’s a bonfire pit perfect for roasting marshmallows. Thanks to Sea Oats’ dedicated concierge service, experiences like yoga classes on the beach or private tennis lessons can also be easily arranged.
Beyond the gates of this luxury waterfront estate, families can explore the quaint boutiques, take out shopping plazas and restaurants of Captiva and Sanibel islands, or tee up on a nearby golf course. Families with baseball fans can plan their visit around Spring Training, allowing our concierge to arrange for tickets and transportation to watch the Twins or Red Sox in action.
Multigenerational Family Travelers Will Find a Treasure Trove of Activities in Captiva Island
Nature-loving children and adults alike will also appreciate the opportunity to go deep sea fishing or hop on an eco-tour to look for dolphins, sea turtles, manatees, and other unique wildlife. For either option, a boat will pull up to Sea Oats’ private dock and pick guests up for their adventure. If a sunset and dolphin sightseeing cruise is more their speed, The Santiva can come pick up the entire family directly from the dock.
With so much to do, multigenerational families will never get bored with a trip to Captiva Island, and no matter what activities they choose, Sea Oats’ concierge is ready to arrange every detail.
