“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.”

Gift From The Sea




What a day! Today I had two shelling trips. I scheduled the trips so I could jump off my boat and run down to Sanibel to go to a book signing between trips. Reeve Lindbergh, the daughter of Ann Morrow Lindbergh, was signing the book called  "Against Wind and Tide" a collection of letters and journals of her mother's. Reeve also signed a copy of the 50 year edition of "Gift By The Sea". It was a great day. I will always treasure this gift by the sea.
