“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.”

June Photos
















June is over and July is moving fast. The cloud formations in Southwest Florida in the summer time are ominous but beautiful through the lens of a camera. The sea turtles have been busy laying their eggs on Cayo Costa. As of July 1st, there are over a hundred nests and I love em all. The sea oats are looking tantalizing as usual this time of year. I can never get enough of that landscape. The bottom of my boat is painted. Yeah! I look forward to July and the full moon. I plan on taking three days off during the full moon and exploring around Engelwood and  fossilizing by boat. Then traveling back south and watching the full moon from the water, by one of my favorite places.. Cayo Costa.
