“Captain Brian Holaway is well versed in the intricacies of our unmatched locale. He can guide to and through a multitude of out-of-the way tidal creeks, bayous, keys and islands. More important is his passionate interest and respect for the region. With unique insights from his many explorations and his studies, not only does he identify the birds and wildlife that inhabit our semi-tropical watery land, but he explains their interconnectedness to their environment and each other. In addition, he shares the fascinating history of rugged people who came long before us: Florida Native Indians, the Calusa, the Spanish, the Cubans, early homesteaders, and the wisdom evident in the growth of their culture.

You will come away with great enjoyment and a new understanding of this beautiful place and its history.”

Sea Life Photography and Beachcombing with Kristen

It was a beautiful day today beachcombing and looking at sea life through the lens of the camera. Kristen has traveled with me many times and is always prepared and ready for what ever comes our way. We spent the morning on the flats taking pictures of the shells and marine world. Kristen is an excellent photographer and has a unique perspective of looking at what she is shooting through her lens. I learn something from her keen eye every time we go out. After a morning of photography on the flats we went to a delicious lunch at the Tarpon Lodge. Then it was off to secret spot Z for more photography and some shell collecting. Thank you Kristen for a wonderful day on the water.  Capt. Brian

Great Adventure Family

Pat, Jen, Walter, Ben Izzy and Ursla spent two days exploring, shelling, learning and just having fun. This family has traveled with me for many years. It is always fun to see how much the kids have grown and to see what shells they are into. They are all excellent shellers and I enjoy learning from there insights about shelling and the natural world. Thank you for another adventure on the water and in the back country. I look forward to our next one.  Capt. Brian
