“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.”

Three Bags Full















Margaret and Pattie filled three bags full of shells. Their glass is always half full. Margaret and Pattie are always full of good energy. We spent the first half of the trip on a newly formed sandbar in the Gulf of Mexico. It was a blast and full of many shells - worm shells, tulips, horse conchs, fighting conchs and more worm shells. It was a great experience with two experienced beachcombers. Next we traveled to a beach empty of people but full of shells. Margaret was in heaven!  She loves finding the unique creatures from the sea as well as the shells. Pattie is also a great collector of beach items. She has a good eye for just what she wants. It was a wonderful trip with two fellow beachcombers.  I look forward to our next time on the beach exploring. Thank you Margaret and Pattie!
