“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.”

Sunrise, Solitude And Shells























The Chicago sisters are long time shellers to the islands.  Our time on the water the last few years usually starts before sunrise. The goal is to get out on the water far away from any other boats, shut the engine off and watch night became day. The only sounds around are the osprey diving for fish, dolphin breathing, a pileated woodpecker and the sound of the brown pelicans wings. The break of dawn is the best part of the day (or at least one of them). Next we traveled to an isolated stretch of beach full of solitude and small treasures from the sea.  Another peaceful morning on the water with the Chicago sisters.

What a beautiful way to start the day. And lucky Chicago girls to be away from the cold and snow.
