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.”

Captain Brian Celebrates 20 Years on Captiva Island


I walked an old dirt road on Captiva that I used to walk 20 years ago.
I was happy to walk this dirt road once again.

Congratulations on 20 years! Without a doubt, you have met many people and touched many lives through sharing your knowledge and insights of the region. Wishing you many more years as a favorite shelling guide and master naturalist in Southwest Florida.

Capt. Brian Holaway said...

Thank you Kathy.

20 years!! Come on, did you get there when you were 9? :D
Remember sneak...I mean driving into SS after the tropical storm a few years back and trudging through the weeds to get to the dirt road that lead out to the flats. That was crazy fun. The best part was seeing my girlie niece get speared in the ponytail by the mangrove branch. Good times and hopefully 20 more years of adventure on your amazing Cayo.

Congrats on a wonderful milestone Brian. I'm so happy we've found you and have been able to share in your adventures and knowledge. See you in a couple of weeks!

Happy 20 year celebration - here's to the next twenty!!! That dirt road looks like it leads to the beach :-) In hindsight, the best decision we made when we first vacationed on Sanibel was to book a Cayo shelling trip with Captiva Cruises . The captains were Keith and Brian. The rest is history :-) Looking forward to seeing if you can hoist me into the boat in 20 years when you are 49 (Karen's math!) and I am 80.

Ah, the view down Wightman and/or Laika Lane is one of my favorites! Congrats on 20 years!

Capt. Brian Holaway said...

You got it Morgan.
