Bokeelia Florida has a romantic past with pirates dashing in and out of Charlotte Harbor with their booty. As early as 1765, Spanish fishing camps were known to exist in this area. They were supplying Spanish settlements in the Florida Keys and Cuba. In the early 1900’s settlers began arriving in Bokeelia and made a living raising tropical fruit. They were drawn to the tranquility at the north end of Pine Island Florida with Charlotte Harbor in full view.
The Calusa Indians built a complex system of canals that can still be seen in the Pineland area today. In the early 20th century, settlers built their homes on the Calusa Indian mounds and today some of those mounds are still present. Research facilities such as the Mote Marine Laboratory and the University of Floridas’ Randell Research Center are located near and on the mounds.
