[ON LOCATION] LAUREL HERMAN

ust off of Florida's Gulf Coast on Captiva Island, a
45-minute drive from Fort Myers International Airport, is an
ideal setting for meetings and incentives set on 330 acres
of wildlife preserve for planners who want to integrate
water-themed activities and views into their events.

AIR, LAND AND SEA
Groups will enjoy more than two miles of fabulous beaches and
sunsets as the island resort is bordered by the Gulf of Mexico to the
west and Pine Island Sound to the east. There are many outdoor
dining choices for events with water views, including the Kings
Crown Lawn that leads to the Sunset Beach Luau area, seating
200 in rounds of 10. Parasailing, boat rentals, wave runners,
paddleboards, kayaks, golf carts and bikes, and guided tours to
barrier islands that point out the history of the area and local wildlife
are all available from Sunny Island Adventures, which has a
number of outposts on-site. Groups of seven to 48 can also try a
private cruise expedition with Captiva Cruises, which is also onsite. Sunset, dolphin, wildlife adventures and other themed cruises,
or fishing charters and offshore sailing classes can also be booked.

ACCOMMODATIONS ARE VARIED
"South Seas Island Resort offers many types of accommodations,"
says Juan Ayala, senior sales manager. "And, depending on the
size and focus of your group, we can recommend different areas
of the resort for hotel rooms and suites, one-, two- and threebedroom villas and even a few homes. If you want to be near
our conference center, which hosts up to 225 attendees, then

we suggest you stay in our South Village, where we can offer
beach cottages and villas or tennis and bayside villas," Ayala says.
"Groups can easily take advantage of Doc Ford's Rum Bar and
Grille right next to the conference center for a lunch or dinner; the
restaurant can hold up to 90. At North Pointe, we have the Kings
Crown Lawn or Sunset Beach Luau (though groups in South
Pointe can access either); or in the Sea Pearl meeting space 130
attendees can be seated classroom-style. In general, the property
appeals to associations, corporate groups and incentive groups."
Ayala says incentive groups will love the two- and threebedroom accommodations at Land's End at the very end of the
island in North Pointe, overlooking Red Fish Pass.

DINING CHOICES
While the resort has a full catering department that creates all kinds
of fresh specialties in the conference center and other indooroutdoor venues, it can also arrange for dine-arounds at some great
local restaurants. "Just three minutes off-site, we bring groups to
experience local fare from the Bubble Room, Mucky Duck, RC
Otters and Key lime Bistro," Ayala says.
And for smaller groups of up to 25, don't miss the resort's
signature restaurant, Harbourside Bar & Grill, which is a sea-totable nautically inspired restaurant that sources sustainable fish
daily. We suggest you try the local fish, Florida Gulf grouper, and
don't forget to add on Cuban yucca fries.
