“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.”

Captain Brian Goes Astray














I don't often stray to crowded beaches, but today I competed in a 1 mile Paddle Board Race at Fort Myers Beach.  I have looked forward to paddling in this race for some time.  I paddled hard and I  am proud of receiving the honor of 2nd Place.  Now I am anxious to get back to my favorite spot to listen to the familiar sounds and smells of a beach I call home.
