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.”

Shelling With Katie And Penny

















Katie is an avid sheller and probably the youngest blog follower. Katie's mom told me about her daughter's passion for shelling as we left the dock. Katie had reread her shell guide book on the plane ride down from Kansas City.  She found three zig zag scallops, olives, sand dollars, a perfect mini turkey wing along with many other treasures. We walked past thousands of coquinas which was an amazing sight. While we were shelling a pod of dolphins swam close to the beach. It was a most enjoyable day of shelling with Katie and Penny. 
Keep on shelling and HAPPY BIRTHDAY Katie!

They made some good finds including some beautiful sand dollars.

Bee and I have been crafting with all the shells we got in May on our trip with you. I need a Sanibel fix.
