“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.”

Exploring Plants and Shells With Susan











Susan and I covered a lot of ground on this trip.  Susan has been exploring with me before and has a background in botany and much time spent in the woods. We both enjoyed talking and exploring the plant life of Northern Cayo. I need to brush up on my Latin for our next trip:) After exploring in remote areas on the north end we traveled to secret spot no number and went for a nice walk on the beach. Susan found a large alphabet cone, a lace murex, worm shells and many minis. The light on the beach was stunning. It was a nice sunset. I enjoyed the conversations and time exploring with Susan. The time flew by. Susan brought down one of her plant books for me.  Thank you for an enjoyable day and a great book!
