I had the rare opportunity to enjoy the area beaches this past week as I hopped onboard a sailing catamaran. This boat was large enough to seat 24, but we were a small group.
The weather and water were unusually beautiful on this day. The water was the clearest I had seen it in this area lately, and the weather was hot but not too hot.
Our boat left out of Captiva Island which is one of my favorite places to spend the day sipping cocktails. I don’t do that nearly enough. While in theory it is close to my home, the traffic and two-way road makes it a two hour trek. I rarely make the trip, so this was a nice way to enjoy the island! After leaving Captiva Island, we headed toward North Captiva Island.
Captiva and North Captiva are actually separated by a small channel that was created in a hurricane. The only way to get to North Captiva is by boat or small airplane! I love how remote it is, and this was my first time visiting the island. When we arrived, we anchored on the bay side and took a small inflatable boat to shore.
