Did you know …
… that Captiva Island’s north end was once connected to today’s North Captiva Island by a neck known as The Narrows?
A 1921 hurricane broke that neck to create Redfish Pass. The pass was thusly christened when, for some unknown reason, redfish swam through it so at such a profuse rate that the waters looked red.
The phenomenon has never happened since, much to the chagrin of those in quest of the prized fish!
Many thanks to the Sanibel & Captiva Chamber of Commerce for this information!
