“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.”

Traci And Rob













Traci and her husband Rob spent the day with me exploring and beach combing. The trip started with viewing dolphins just after we left the marina. It was a good start to a great trip. Next we went deep into the mangrove back country and explored. Traci and Rob both enjoyed learning about the mangroves. Then it was off to lunch at the always surperb Tarpon Lodge. After lunch we walked the pre-columbian shell mounds at the Randell Research Center. The remainder of the afternoon was spent beach combing along my favorite beach. Rob spotted a horse conch on the beach as we were cruising by at 20 miles an hour. (Good eye Rob) We covered a lot of beach that afternoon. Traci was a trooper and left no piece of driftwood or puffer fish unturned. Thank you Traci and Rob for the fun  adventures. See you in August at favorite spot number one.
