Immerse in an ECO-Tour and Experience Southwest Florida Islands by Boat

“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.”

 Charlie Robinson was singing about pioneer town people and footprints in the sand as the sun fell into the sea.

We're back home in TX but our hearts are still there! I love the reference to Charlie Robinson! (Check your mail soon!) Our favorite part of being in Sanibel/Captiva was the day spent with you AND eating at Doc Ford's - three times after your suggestion!! Thank you so much for a wonderful trip & we look forward to staying in touch! I'll leave you with these few lyrics by Emily Robinson from the Courtyard Hounds:
I'm gonna head down to the coast
Where nothin' ever seems to matter
You know I love it there the most
When every piece of my world gets scattered

Blue skies, green water
White birds in the air
Brown skin, blue collar
And the wind blowin' in my hair

Charlotte, Thank you for the nice words. It was a great day at Cayo on the beach.I love the lyrics by Emily, it makes me think of my favorite spot far into the ten thousand islands in the everglades. I hope to get there soon.
