We have stopped in for fuel, water, fishing supplies a few times, and every time, the employees are extremely helpful and friendly. My husband bought a filet knife and wanted a sharpener. They had none for sale, but let him use the one on the fish cleaning station. They also gave us a scrap piece of wood to use as...

After a fabulous week last year, we planned all year to return. We arrived today and felt like family. We were greeted and welcomed like we have been coming for years. The weather is great and the week ahead holds all kinds of adventure. This place is amazing.

Enjoyed our stay! The cottage was a nice size for he family. Easy walk to the beach and several restaurants. Favorite thing was fishing at the dock and watching the manatees. The addition of garbage pickup and towel delivery would have been welcomed.

We stayed at Jensens twin palms last weekend. Great fishing resort with clean cottages well equipped and with central air. Great tackle shop, even had a boat battery I needed. Gas at the dock, live shrimp, this is not the Four Seasons Hotel but if you like flats fishing or running offshore, this is a fisherman so dream vacation spot.

Jensen's Twin Palm Cottages and Marina was the perfect place to stay during our mini vacation to Captiva Island. The resort epitomizes the truest term of old Florida. The suite we had overlooked the Inter Coastal waterway and was large and comfortable. Our suite was absolutely clean and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable and fun. The...

We had the Best Fishing Guide ever! Josh, based out of Jensen's Marina. Josh was so personable and had such a great attitude & passion for fishing unlike some guides that are just out there collecting the money & not putting you on fish. Josh knew exactly were to go and put us on fish immediately. We maxed out on...

Our family rented pontoon boats at the Marina for a special day trip while visiting in Sanibel/Captiva. I can't speak highly enough of the staff. The equipment functioned well & the staff was highly efficient, professional, and accommodating to our group.

Just wanted to commend all of the people at Jensen's for their device and helpful information while my family vacationed on Captiva the week of July 16th. We rented fishing equipment and everybody there was super helpful in giving fishing tips for both the bay and in the ocean. Every time we stopped, the people there were friendly and very...
