“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.”

The Miller Family






What an extraordinary family- Corey, Kim, Graham, Chloe, Quincy and Wren. I have enjoyed this family for many years, they are always positive and their glass is always half full. We had a blast collecting fighting conchs (and there were many) and exploring the mudflats. We walked the beaches in a remote area collecting the conchs, when Wren said, "Captain Brian can we go back to the swamp?" So the swamp it was.  We returned to where we started and the girls got to play with live hermit crabs and make little corrals for them before letting them go. Kim found a beautiful lightning whelk. Corey was happy to just be there and enjoy his family. I was happy to be a part of this family's memories.
