Ron is an avid photographer and Carol enjoys shelling. We started our trip by exploring the flats. Carol found many sunray venus shells. Next we went to a spot where we took photos of osprey, red-bellied woodpeckers and frigate birds. The next location the surf had picked up in the Gulf which made anchoring a real task so we traveled to the sound side, anchored and explored for shells. On the return trip the sky was absolutely stunning through the lens. Thank you Ron and Carol.

“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.”
