I always enjoy taking long time visitors Dean and Bonnie to the islands and out on the water. Dean and Bonnie are troopers and are always up for whatever adventure comes our way. Bonnie found many olives and nice whelks. Dean found one of the largest pear whelks I have ever seen, but it was alive so we took a picture and but it back in the water. We also saw bobcat tracks and a new sea turtle nest. It is unusual to see a sea turtle nest this late in the season. Time passed by fast as we were walking, talking and shelling. I look forward to our next adventure!
Immerse in an ECO-Tour and Experience Southwest Florida Islands by Boat
“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.”
