“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.”

Shelling With Brook
















Brook is an avid sheller and has a great eye for finding shells. This trip was filled with exploring new locations and talking shells. I look forward to next years trip with Brook and hearing about her shelling adventures.

Day with Kathy Part 2
































What a wonderful day. The morning was spent walking the flats and listening to the wing flaps of white pelicans as they cruised overhead. The afternoon was spent walking a beach empty of people and full of gifts from the sea. Thank you Kathy for two days of exploring off the beaten path.
