Island Girl Charters at Pineland Marina is the water taxi service to North Captiva Island, Florida, docking at Safety Harbor Club, Barnacle Phil's Restaurant and North Captiva Island Club. We also offer daily trips to Cabbage Key, made famous by Jimmy Buffet's Cheese Burger in Paradise and provide service to and from Boca Grande, Captiva and Useppa Island. Our fleet consists of six vessels. We operate three USCG certified 30+ ft. Boats, including a 49 passenger Corinthian Catamaran, a 19 passenger Crusader and a 16 passenger Morgan. We also have three vessels that are used for private charters, water taxi service for 6 passengers or less, and sightseeing trips. We offer six scheduled trips daily and can also arrange private off-schedule trips at any time you prefer day or night. We also offer nature, dolphin watching, shelling, manatee and birding trips. You can combine these trips as well. The combinations are completely customizable to meet your desires. With over 10 year's experience of superior service, our philosophy is to provide you with safe, reliable transportation to the islands. Your vacation begins when you step on board!

Hi Deb! The 7:30am boat will get back to Pineland Marina around 8:30am. It’s doable but it might be pushing it to be at the airport in plenty of time to get through security etc. in my opinion. -Emily
