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.”

Exploring Shells and Wildlife












The weather was perfect for exploring with  Margaret, Manny, Matt, his girlfriend and their niece.  We traveled to an isolated stretch of beach and walked to the sound side where we observed roseate spoonbills, willets, snowy egrets, horseshoe crabs, a raccoon, and kings crowns having lunch on a crab. The time seemed to fly by. While the anchor was being pulled, dolphins appeared off the bow of the boat. It was the perfect ending to a perfect trip.

Very nice photos from the sound side. I especially like the eighth photo of the horse shoe crabs amongst all the little fish and shells. Some day I'd like to get back there and hunt for some King's Crown Conchs. The Roseates are beautiful. It looks like you had an awesome day!
