“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.”

Capt. Brian's Back Porch








Somebody recently asked about my shell collection. Here are some photos of my back porch. These shells were collected in the last two years. Some were from Panama, most were collected in southwest Florida. The shells were found at low tide and high tide after winter storms and light winds. The beauty of shelling is that you never know what you will find. Kind of like my back porch or garage.
