“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.”

Early Morning













I arrived at the marina early and was prepping the boat for a morning trip. I kept looking at the sky, clouds and light. I finally couldn't take it. I pushed the boat off the dock and set out to capture the changing light and colors. My trip was leaving in 20 minutes. I thought, "I can shoot for 20 minutes". I took many photos then went back to the dock. The clouds began to change again and the light was even better. I once again pushed the boat off the dock and motored to a spot in the bay to take even more photos. Looking through the lens I alternated my hand from the lens to the throttle.  I took more photos. The light and clouds were amazing this morning. I even managed to make it back to the dock for my trip on time.
