“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.”

A National Geographic Day



















Traci traveled with me today to explore the out islands. She is a long time lover of the water and used to work as an underwater photographer for National Geographic. We talked about old adventures and future cameras. Conversations were had about sharks, sea turtles, kelp forests, seahorses, seals, boats, camera filters, birds, wright whales, books, field guides, fossils and Jacques Cousteau. I enjoyed listening to her stories as we walked and shelled. The bird life and dolphins were outstanding. I look forward to our next outing exploring in the water. Thanks Traci.
