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.”

Good Times With Elna And Lisa









We left the dock under a sliver of moonlight. Elna and Lisa were troopers. The first spot we went to the sun was not up yet. When the first light hit the beach we witnessed many live olives. Elna found worm shells and this little horse conch. Next we traveled north of secret spot number two in search of mini shells. We filled the box with wentletraps, tusks, rice shells, and other cool finds. On the way back to the marina we saw dolphin and manatee. Lisa and Elna were very happy with their trip. I look forward to our next day on the water.

That last photo is awesome!! I'm taking notes on all these secret spots - we are hitting them all next time I'm there. :-)

That is the plan Kim, and a few surprises. The list keeps growing. Neil, David Allen....

That looks like the same horse conch that Fred and Polly found. In all my shelling escapades, I've yet to pick up a wentletrap. There's always next time...

Daybreak is the best. Jan 2013 has some super good early morning minus low tides a'coming.

Still loving the Horse Conch Jackpot. Two! One bigger then the next!

Isn't there a photo without my hand covering half of the gorgeousness of that shell?

Am I able to download any of these photos?

That minus low tide in January is calling me too...
