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.”

Moria, Marty and Friends



















All of the stars were aligned on this trip. I always enjoy having Moira and Marty on the boat. This year they brought along Karen and Al. We had perfect weather and no one else on the beach but us. We traveled to favorite island number one. The beach was beautiful. Marty was finding olive shells and picking up large jingle shells for Moria. I enjoyed walking and talking with Moira as we shelled. Meanwhile Karen was filling her shell bag up with sand dollars. The tide was falling fast. Next we headed to the flats. The flats were full of beautiful live shells that we photographed. We also found a handful of Morton egg cockles.  Thank you Moira and Marty for another fun day on the water!

Brian, we always enjoy going on a trip with you! Each time the beaches are different, the shells are varied and the scenery is beautiful!! You teach us something new each trip, too!!

Karen and Al enjoyed our adventure; it was a new experience for them, and we talked about it on the way home.

Thanks, again Brian - we won't forget the toadfish!!!

I'm looking forward to hearing about your adventures with Kim and Chablis next week!
