“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.”

Drifting on The Tide


Twenty four hours before the full moon at the southern end of Cayo Costa, I shut the engine off and drifted with the tide. I watched frigate birds dogfight, sea turtles breath, blue crabs drift, jellyfish do what they do and puffer fish puff.  Twenty four hours before the full moon at the southern end of Cayo Costa.
