“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.”

Chicago Sisters












There is nothing like being on the water at first light.  We drifted with the tide and watched the day unfold as a bald eagle graced us with his presence. Then it was on to the beach. The olives were rolling in. (Secret spot number 3) Many great finds were found. After a morning of shelling we traveled to the Tarpon Lodge for a delicious lunch . On the return trip we saw many dolphin and enjoyed the beautiful Florida fall weather. It is always fun with these Chicago sisters that love to shell.
