“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.”

Captiva Island Sunset

The light was unbelievable tonight. I took several photos on the bay side of Captiva Island, while cleaning the boat. On my way home the light and sunset were spectacular. I had to stop and take more photos. By the time I reached the south end of Captiva Island, the sky was on fire. I had to stop a second time. I ran to the beach and took pictures of the last orange glow of the day. Every sunset leads to a new day.
