“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.”

Summer is Here




April is almost over, seems like yesterday it was the 3rd. Now May is approaching and it looks, feels and smells great. I look forward to the next 45, days. Things are going to be busy. I am looking forward to showing many people the beauty of Southwest Florida. This week will be Rick and Gail, followed by Beverly and family, then Moira and family, next Daniyell and her family. Then look out, Busybee and crew. Then shelling till sunset, with Alanine and her sister. The next trip will be with my good friends and long time clients, Nancy and Brian. Mellisa is going to hold down the fort while they are away. I look forward to seeing Mellisa in August. The next day will be with an old time sheller from the Lone Star state. I look forward to hearing his shell stories and learning.  The photo of the rare shell above was found on Cayo Costa April 21 at 2:30 in the afternoon. The young gentleman who found it was kind enough to let me take a picture of it. You never know when that spotted univalve will appear.

New Endeavours

I have been exploring the nooks and  mangroves around Cayo Costa. It has been most enjoyable. I enjoyed exploring the Island and  its enviroment.  It seems the more I  know, the less I understand.
