“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.”

I enjoyed taking world travelers from California around the islands. We enjoyed photographing wild dolphin, manatee and landscapes. Heather, Robbie, Ray and the twins, Madison and Rob. The trip was filled with beautiful beach sandollars and many unique shells from the island. Robbie asked if there were any geocatches on the island. I said, "why yes there is" and we walked up the beach and discovered one.   Madison found an excellent white fighting conch as you can see in the picture (great find Madison).  The trip was filled with new adventures for the kids and the parents.  I enjoyed the whole thing - being a kid and a parent.
