“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.”

Jim and Cassandra From Florida










I don't often get the privilege of having a native Floridian on my boat. Jim and his wife are from North Florida. Jim has collected shells as long as he can remember and he has a good memory, at least for shells. Jim found a beautiful Lace Murex and other finds as well. I relished our conversations of different shells and talked about the shells we look forward to finding in the future. It was a great trip with a Native Floridian collecting shells. Thank you Jim and Cassandra.
