Immerse in an ECO-Tour and Experience Southwest Florida Islands by Boat

“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.”

Veteran Shellers





Long time Sanibel shellers from Canada joined me for a beautiful day of shelling and wildlife viewing. The dolphins were in a playful mood. I was most impressed by the keen eye of veteran sheller Chris. Chris found the largest nutmeg I have ever seen. The horse conch was a great find.That size of horse conch is hard to find. Great finds, Keep on shelling!

Hi Brian,
Our family certainly enjoyed our 1/2 day with you. Next time we will have to try the flats. You know many a secret place to hunt shells. The nutmeg is now home in Winnipeg. It has a place of honour on Chris and Leanne's mantel.
Thanks again,
Kay
