“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.”

Intrepid Shellers





Two intrepid shellers traveled with me today. The wind was very strong, but not enough to keep Dayton and Nancy in port. The husband and wife team have been shelling for decades. Nancy loves baby ears. Today she found a large baby ear beside a perfect worm shell. The day was filled with wind, baby ears and great conversation. I learned a lot from Nancy on our beach walk. It is always a pleasure shelling with Dayton and Nancy.
