Museum Tours

Located on an island accessible only by water, the Barbara Sumwalt Museum can be reached in several ways.

You may arrive via the private tour boat operated by Captiva Cruises departing from Captiva Island, FL. This relaxing and delightful voyage provides a narrated cruise through the waters of Pine Island Sound and takes about an hour to arrive on Useppa. Visitors aboard the Captiva Cruise boat may dine on the island and will still have plenty of time to visit the museum. Please visit for more information.

You may also come to the museum by private water taxi, your vessel, or aboard the Useppa Island Club launch, which departs from the north end of Pine Island, FL. Since Useppa is a private island, arrangements must be made in advance to visit the island, and visitors may not dine on the island unless arrangements have been made with Useppa Island Club. Please contact the Museum Director at or at 239-283-9600, or call Useppa Island Club at 239-283-1061 to help you plan your visit.
