“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.”

Shelling Walk And Talk With Fred And Polly









What a fun time with Fred and Polly. Fred found a beautiful worm shell just a few feet from where we anchored the boat. Polly really liked the jingle shells. Polly noticed a large horse conch close to the shoreline. It was live so we took a picture and put it back where it was. I enjoyed showing both Fred and Polly how to find rice shells. There shelling eyes got better as the day went on. We also found two crested tellins. I liked the picture of Polly holding it up with the blue sky as a background.
