“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.”

Beauty Of The Islands

The beauty of the Islands is that they are always changing. These photos were taken today of the north end of Cayo Costa. I can't help but take photos of this beautiful spot, over and over again. The middle photo is a beach on the bay side of Cayo Costa on the north end where two Augusts ago I saw many starfish. This is one of many special spots on Cayo Costa that I relish every day.
