“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.”

Carolina Family










I enjoyed  the company of Rita, Shawn, Jen, Christopher, Jacob, and Micheal. The family has been shelling in Southwest Florida for over 20 years. We explored the back country and observed many live shells. We found some excellent shells that were unoccupied. Jen found a nice Lighting whelk and many Olives. Other shells found were Kings Crowns, Gaudia Nautica, Worm shells, Tusk shells, Cockles, Angel Wings, Scallops, Key Hole Limpets, Fighting conchs, Turkey wings and Top shells. The kids had a great time catching fiddler crabs, grandma loved the whole experience. It was a fun day on the water with a very nice family from the Carolina's.
