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.”

Great Finds






















 
Kathy is an avid sheller who enjoys learning about the wildlife and marine habits. We left the dock as the sun was coming up and returned nine hours later. We started the trip by going to a remote area across the bay and explored. It was a great walk and talk as we observed marine life.  Next it was out to the barrier islands where a beautiful LIONS PAW was discovered among many other shells. Then we had a quick lunch at an island outpost and then it was back to shelling. Kathy found many olives, tusks, wentletraps, nutmegs and an albino lightning whelk. It was definitely a day for the whelks and a great day of exploring new places.

Is that an all white Kings Crown?

There's the Lion's Paw! And is that another crested tellin in the picture with all the tusk shells?

Capt. Brian Holaway said...

Kim, The kings crown is faded but still has markings on it. Not an all white kings crown. It was a very cool find.

Capt. Brian Holaway said...
