“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.”

Shelling And Sunset
















I love May. May sunsets are my favorite. Sharing time on the water with Helen, Dave, Kay, and Jerry was a pleasure. It was there first time to the out islands. ( They got spoiled with the beautiful May weather) We all enjoyed the shell collecting and observing all things wild. Jerry was the "sleeper sheller" who found sun ray venus and.... a baby's ear shell. Dave found many cool cockles that he balanced on his arm. (I like that) Helen and Kay both had smiles on there faces the whole time. The sunset was inspiring. The dolphin seemed to like the May weather as well. Thanks for all the great questions and conversations it  was a great trip.
