"Fun and Adventurous Children's Activities Around Sanibel and Captiva Islands"
When most families think of taking a vacation to Florida, they think of Mickey Mouse. But how about a different kind of family vacation, one that includes sun, sand, ocean, dolphins, turtles, manatees, and a history of pirates and legends that will fascinate even the most avid Mickey Mouse fan?
Welcome to Captiva Island. This beautiful and secluded island is located just offshore of the Gulf of Mexico in southwest Florida. It is close to its larger sister island Sanibel, and both islands are full of exciting adventures as well as relaxing hideaways for whatever mood strikes you during your stay. Free of high rises and other big-city distractions, Captiva island is the perfect place for parents and children to spend quality time together. Here is just a sampling of children’s activities around the Sanibel and Captiva Islands.

Staying at Sea Oats Luxury Estate is the first step to a fun but luxurious vacation. The estate features several on site activities including secluded beach access, a heated swimming pool surrounded by a patio and grill, a media room for gaming and movie watching, a ping pong table, a private fishing dock, and a full tennis court with equipment and the option of hiring private professional trainers. In addition, the rooms are elegant but modern and will give your family the privacy you want on your getaway. You can even choose to stay in the guesthouse, a secluded house on the property with two bedrooms and a living room.
When you are finally able to pry yourself away from the estate, you won’t have to travel far for even more adventures. Sea Oats Luxury Estate is a short drive away from a golf course. If you’re in the mood for water fun, take a sailing lesson with offshore sailing school or rent a boat to go dolphin watching, and keep a look out for turtles and manatees along the way! For a more active experience, take one of our kayaks to the beach with you. If you prefer, you can take a cruise and let the captain do the sailing for you while you watch the beautiful sunset or look for dolphins, turtles, and manatees. A great activity for kids of all ages is shelling, a popular past time on Captiva island especially during the months of May-September.
