    Perfect Venue

    South Seas was a magical, perfect place for my husband and I to get married for many reasons. Hands down, there is no better private beach setting than Sunset Pointe. No one observed our ceremony except the loved ones we invited and the dolphins in the Gulf of Mexico. The tropical landscape and one-in-a-million sunset we had the night of our wedding proved we made the best choice. There are so many venue spaces to choose from and the new Sunset Pavilion was just what we were looking for- a classy, air-conditioned indoor space with a beautiful deck and lawn for our guests to enjoy the fresh air and get the perfect sunset shot. Many have said our pictures look like they can’t be real, but that’s just the undeniable beauty of South Seas and Captiva Island. The food was fantastic, service was incredible, and there is so much on-site entertainment we knew that our guests would be able to have a memorable vacation. From the moment we arrived as Bride and Groom, everything was stress-free and first class. We were able to relax and enjoy the venue’s amenities knowing that our events were in good hands and were ready to be executed to perfection. South Seas is the most picturesque Florida beach resort that we look forward to getting to celebrate our anniversary at for years to come.

    Malissa was absolutely wonderful to work with! She was very responsive and even moved our site the day of to give us a little more privacy. The resort is beautiful and gave us everything we wanted for our wedding.

    Amazing venue that always leaves couple totally thrilled. We always have a great experience at South Seas and the couples always rave to us about how great the property is!

  • Nick Adams Photography Wedding Photographers

    South Seas is one of the premier destination wedding spots in Florida and probably the world…. seriously. That sounds like a bold statement but it's not without substance. Firstly, South Seas, boasts a location to die for. It has several first class choices of wedding venues, from the lawns to the beaches. It is located at the end of Captiva Island,(no through traffic) in a private, gated, setting. The Resort is surrounded by lush greenery and tropical landscaping. There are unbelievable views overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, the back bay and the marina. The ultimate accommodations at 'Lands End' have spectacular views across Redfish Pass which is not only beautiful but a world renowned fishing spot. Other activities include: golf, swimming, tennis and sailing. There are several pools on the resort including a large luxurious pool with cabanas and chair side service. The kiddies pool and cool slide is conveniently located out of earshot:) There are several first class restaurants on and around the resort. From a photographers standpoint; South Seas is a gem of a resort. Photographically, there is plenty of variety, from the candy store to the beaches, from the lawn areas to the marina. It really has a bit of everything. Did you know that it also is the only place on Sanibel and Captiva that you can photograph into the sun and away from the sun and still have water behind you? South Seas has a well equipped marina and a trip to the resort without a sunset cruise would be sacrilege. (incidentally you can have a wedding or rehearsal dinner catered, aboard one of the classic looking river boats) The wedding staff at the resort are both friendly and very professional, I would highly recommend letting them guide you through the wedding planning process to make your day as seamless as possible. What is there not to love…. A '5 star' rating from Nick Adams Photography
