Lng: -82.17544 Lat: 26.56157Back to site data


Redfish Pass is a deep water inlet that separates Captiva from North Captiva and connects the Gulf of Mexico with Pine Island Sound. Pine island Sound is a euryhaline, shallow water body protected by the barrier island chain and is designated as an aquatic preserve. Frequent water exchanges between the Gulf of Mexico and Pine Island sound maintain clear, emerald green water that supports large visual predators such as tarpon and sharks.

John and Donna Schubert provided the initial equipment of RECON at Redfish Pass.
