“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.”

Toes in The Sand and Heavy Surf











The tropical system that passed by out in the gulf is bringing heavy surf  to Cayo Costa. Yesterday the wind was blowing 25 with gusts up to 30. The wind was out of the south. The water went  high up on the beach into the dune area by the sea oats. The shelling should be good by the end of the week at Cayo once these waves settle down. I am curious to see how everything looks on Cayo Costa after all this high wind and heavy surf.
