“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.”

Moria and Marty

















 Sunset and a super moon low tide with friends Moria and Marty, WOW! It was a wonderful trip. Marty was like a magnet for sandollars, Moria found a key hole limpet, cockles, a baby's ear shell, tusks, rice shells, olives, sun ray venus, wendeltrap, bubble shells, and many colorful coquinas. Great conversations were had and mutual shelling friends were talked about. Kim the ever busy bee was brought up often. The Essential Beachcomber was also talked about.  The day was filled with great memories. Thank you Moria and Marty.
