“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.”

Interview With Grad Student




You can never learn enough about the world we inhabit. I am a huge supporter when it comes to educating on the environment in and around the water.  I recently met with Julia, a graduate student from Duke University, who was researching positive and negative feedback on the Dolphin Smart Program. I found it refreshing to speak with Julia who showed passion, knowledge and ambition for educating more people on marine life.  It's young students like her that will pave the way for future protection of marine mammals.  Julia, thank you for the opportunity to meet with you and provide feedback on the Dolphin Smart Program.
