Travel to North Captiva should begin with checking on great flights to one of the major international airports nearby. SW Florida International (RSW) is a quiet and convenient airport to traverse. Mostly on One Level and very easy to access the parking areas, navigating it is truly a pleasure. Punta Gorda Airport (PGD) is now serviced by Allegiant and Frontier airlines, between these two providers, there is now a gateway for direct flights from many more cities and at value to boot.
Tampa (TPA), Sarasota (SRQ ), and Fort Lauderdale (FLL) are a good distance away to the North or East, but Airfare Deals often make it rewarding to travel up to 2 hours by car down to Pine Island.
