“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.”

Beautiful Day in April






I had a great time showing Cindy, Lynn, Theresa, Jennifer,Cameron, and Ashlin around the Islands of Captiva, North Captiva, and Cayo Costa. We started the trip by observing dolphins in the wild.  Soon after we saw manatees. We had the chance to look at these marine mammals for quite a while. It was a first for all on board. After a short boat ride from Captiva we found an isolated stretch of beach where the shelling was good. Cameron and Ashlin found what they were searching for "Sand dollars". The ladies had a great time, and time flew by quickly.

New Bucket


Here are pictures of the old and new bucket. The old bucket has many battle scars and stickers. I christened the new bucket with a sticker from Cayo Costa. If you have a sticker you would like to add to my bucket bring it on down. See ya all soon. Capt. Brian
