“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.”

Exploring




Today I traveled by boat and stand up paddle board (sup) to Cayo Costa. A long time client and I explored the lagoon on Cayo Costa. Wow!  What a great time exploring. I even rode a wave  from the gulf to the lagoon. Yes this part of the island is open. ( just a side note for the mom and daughter from Minnesota/ North Carolina I met last December on a windy day. The lagoon opened the week of May 17th we had strong winds for 10 days.) I enjoyed paddling around places I have not been before.  For the first time I can feel the pulse of the Island. My explorations in the last 2 weeks have given many new insights on Cayo Costa. I look forward to July's full moon and exploring more.
