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 On A Beautiful Day



















The weather was absolutely perfect for exploring. Kathy from Tampa and I covered a lot of different ecosystems. We started on the flats walking and talking about everything we observed. Next it was off to the outer islands. A new sandbar had recently emerged in the Gulf. The wind was calm so we went exploring in "Terra Incognito". I love it when the situation presents itself. After the newly formed sand spit was explored we went to another island. This island was full of wildlife and shells and empty of people. The back country was another gem of surprises on this day. It was a most pleasurable day on the water with Kathy exploring places just off the far horizon.
