“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.”

Sheri And Sam

Sam spotted a HUGE horse conch in the marina.  We pulled the boat over and Sam got out and pulled this beautiful shell on board. We took many photos. Soon after Sam spotted some fins on the water. It turned out to be a spotted eagle ray. (My favorite) We watched this ray for a long time. Then we traveled south of secret spot number two.  The beach was loaded with many shells. Time seemed to fly by. We had to pull Sheri off the beach.(She could have shelled for days) I enjoyed the conversations about shells and  horses. Great finds and great horses! I look forward to seeing you again next year .P.S. Sam I also look forward to a 15.1  on Sunday:)
