Getting Around North Captiva Island

Golf Carts

Golf carts are the main mode of transportation on North Captiva Island. Two golf carts are included with your house rental.  Please take the time to discuss these golf cart rules with all members of your party.

  1. Anyone operating a golf cart must be a registered guest of Bluefin Beach House, be at least 16 years old, and have a valid driver’s license.
  2. The maximum capacity of the golf cart is 4 people.
  3. Golf carts must be operated on the road only. Golf carts are not allowed on the beach or in the state preserve.
  4. Golf carts are not designed for rough terrain. Please avoid potholes, bumps, and puddles. If the batteries get submerged in water it can destroy the golf cart.
  5. Golf carts operating after sunset must have lights turned on.
  6. When parking, make sure the parking brake is engaged and the golf cart is in neutral.
  7. Golf carts should be charged every night and before you leave on your departure day.
  8. Please report any malfunctions to the owner immediately.
  9. Alcohol is not permitted in golf carts.
  10. Any fines acquired by a guest shall be the guest’s sole responsibility.
  11. If a golf cart is damaged, lost, or stolen during your rental, the guest is responsible for the total cost of repairs or replacement.

The island is working to address visitors who are abusing golf carts and allowing underage driving. If you are reported, the golf carts will be taken away for the remainder of your stay.
