“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.”

Four Legged Starfish





On the first day of March, a happy, enthusiastic and energetic lady from Illinois snorkeled past me.  She stopped swimming and held out a four legged starfish. Wow! I had never seen a "Four legged starfish". Sometimes the five legged starfish lose a leg and grow a new one back, but not this one.  It was a true four legged starfish. We both took pictures of this unique sea creature and then she put it back where it came from, the sea. Very cool.
