“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 Take Two













The mood was far from blue when we left the dock under the cover of darkness. The Chicago sister's second trip of the week was great. The sunrise by favorite spot number one was beautiful. We traveled to an isolated stretch of beach and enjoyed the shell bounty. There were many excellent finds. It has been a while since I have seen such a wide variety of shells. The zig zag scallop and small cone were two very cool finds of the day. There were a lot. Thank you for a great trip. See you in March.
