It was a great day of exploring with veteran sheller Katie, her dad and her brother Ryan. We walked the flats and saw many live shells. Katie found a live albino lightning whelk. We took pictures and put it back where she found it. Many cool discoveries were had by all. Then it was off to favorite spot number one. Ryan found a starfish that he shared with his little sister. Katie found a beautiful piece of a junonia! (Great find Katie) Katie is a veteran sheller who knows her shells and it is always a pleasure shelling with Katie. I look forward to our next trip in July.Capt. Brian

“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.”
