“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.”

Adventuring South


 
















 
I rang in the new year by traveling to places I have never been before. The trip started south of Marco Island in the Ten Thousand Islands. It is a fascinating place that intrigues me even more every time I go there. The more I know the less I understand.  The awe inspiring beauty and the silence is deafening to the ears.  Hundreds of photographs were taken and new places logged in my mind. It was a great shakedown trip for my new compass(first trip for old blue). The compass worked well. Many new courses were plotted and logged. It's always a pleasure to travel just beyond the far horizon.
