“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.”

Wildlife

The beauty of the great outdoors is always changing. You never know what you might see if you just look. The Bald Eagle in the photo just cruised by with a fish in it's talon. The pod of dolphin had a new born calf. The roseate spoonbill had bands on both legs. The dock that I walk on many times a week had a peaceful sky.
