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.”

Brian, Nancy and Melissa have been long time clients. They are like family. We go out every year around Thanksgiving. I look forward to this trip every year. Melissa is a great photographer and enjoys taking pictures of the birds and wildlife. Brian has a good shelling eye that seems to get better every year. Nancy is always fun to walk and talk with on the beach. She enjoys hearing about all my close calls and my boating follies of the year. I enjoy hearing her laugh. We went to a new spot they had never been to before. It was peaceful and empty of people. Next it was time for lunch at the wonderful Tarpon Lodge. The food was delicious and the service excellent. We made one more stop on the way back to Captiva at secret spot no number.
Thank you again to the Johnson Family for many years of fun times!
(Melissa I will see you in a few months)

Susan and I covered a lot of ground on this trip. Susan has been exploring with me before and has a background in botany and much time spent in the woods. We both enjoyed talking and exploring the plant life of Northern Cayo. I need to brush up on my Latin for our next trip:) After exploring in remote areas on the north end we traveled to secret spot no number and went for a nice walk on the beach. Susan found a large alphabet cone, a lace murex, worm shells and many minis. The light on the beach was stunning. It was a nice sunset. I enjoyed the conversations and time exploring with Susan. The time flew by. Susan brought down one of her plant books for me. Thank you for an enjoyable day and a great book!
