“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.”

The King Family









I enjoyed showing the King family around the islands. We started the trip exploring the flats where we found a beautiful kings crown and three horseshoe crabs. Next in our journey we traveled to Cayo Costa. They King family was in search of  calico clams and sun ray venus. The searching went well, many calico's were collected as well as sun ray venus, and lettered olive shells. The weather was beautiful. On the return trip we all got to see a observe a loggerhead turtle in the water. I managed to get a picture from a distance.( You can zoom in on the fifth photo above) This was the perfect ending to a enjoyable day.
