“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.”

Every Day Is An Adventure











Every day is an adventure especially with Judy from Oregon. What a hoot! This was her first time shelling in Southwest Florida. The shelling was excellent. I was thrilled to see the Scotch Bonnet! She collected angel wings, a large sharks eye, pear whelks, lighting whelks, fighting conchs, four babies ears, carmel worm shells, olive shells, sun ray venus, a kings crown, then the strap on her shelling bag broke. Lucky for her there were two straps. We talked about the shelling in Hawaii and what she finds on the Oregon coast. ( She told me of a beach where she finds agates on the coast of Oregon, I promptly filed this information on beaches to go to.) It was a fun adventure with Judy. All I can say is " Scotch Bonnet"
