Hurricane Ian Recovery
General Island Status
Useppa Island Club is currently open to members and their accompanying guests. Members are welcome to visit the island, but please understand there are some areas currently under construction and inaccessible. Please excuse our dust and we appreciate your respect of the properties under repair and the individuals working hard to fix them. If you intend to visit the island, we ask that you notify our Reception staff by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call 239-308-9211, to ensure dock space is available at our marina and seating available at the Tarpon Bar.
Rental accommodations are once again available to members, although not all accommodations in our rental program are back in service. Please contact our Guest Services team at 239-308-9211 to discuss available options and to make a reservation. You can also view available rentals and pricing at our Come Stay page on the main website. We appreciate your patience and look forward to being able to host you again soon.
The structural repairs to the marina docks are complete, however the installation of power and water is forthcoming. The construction of the Marina office is due to begin in May and we ask your consideration to those workers when the project is underway. Please understand this effort could require some areas of the marina to be restricted at times. It’s in your best interest to call ahead to confirm dockage space prior to making the trip, especially if you have a large boat. For any member who wishes to stay overnight in the marina, with the understanding marina water and power are not available, please call our marina staff at 239-308-9199. The marina showers are open and available. Our dockmaster monitors VHF-14 and emphasizes its importance when you arrive to the island.
Food & Beverage
Our Collier Inn received some damage during Ian and is currently closed for repairs. We expect the Collier Inn to be operational in time for Memorial Day Weekend and we hope you can join us for the festivities. For the time being, The Tarpon Bar is acting as the source of all food and drink on island. Reservations are required, and to make them, please email email@example.com or call 239-829-6104. Please be sure to include the make/model/length of the boat you’ll be using, your member number and a cell phone for contact. Hours are: Monday-Friday: Lunch 12p-2p; Appetizers 2p-6p; Dinner 6p-8p. Saturday: Lunch 12p-2p; Dinner: 6p-8p; Sunday: Lunch 12p-2p; Dinner: 6p-8p.
The Club Ferry is available to members and reservations can be made by calling Reception at 239-308-9211 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Ferry times from Bocilla to Useppa are: 7:30a (staff only); 10a; 11:30a; 3p; 5p. From Useppa to Bocilla: 9a; 11a; 2:30p; 4:30 (staff only); 5:30p. Private ferry runs are available and are subject to our Captain’s schedules. Please call Reception to inquire private run availability and rates.
The pool and jacuzzi are open and available to members, and please understand that we do not allow ANY glass around the pool. A closure of the pool due to broken glass would set us back even further, so this rule will be strictly enforced. The Tarpon Bar will act as the source for all food and drink on island until the Collier Inn repairs are completed. The pool patio may be closed off for periods of time during the Collier Inn repairs, so it’s best to call ahead to confirm its status if you intend to use it.
To contact our accounting department please submit your requests or questions to email@example.com. Presently, the accounting team is operating from an off-island space located at 923 Del Prado Blvd. South Ste 104, Cape Coral, FL 33990. You can call our accounting team at 239-308-9216. The majority of our administrative team is working off island while the reception building awaits its reconstruction and we appreciate your patience with us as we work outside our comfort zone.
