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.”

Katie The Marine Life Explorer & Family
















It was another fun trip with Katie the lover of anything to do with the water and her family.  We started out the trip by viewing dolphin not far from the marina. Then it was off to favorite island number one.  A nice nutmeg was found along with a nice worm shell, a small whelk and a sand dollar. The weather started to move in so we headed back to the boat. Then just as I was getting ready to pull the anchor, Ryan noticed something in the water. It was a manatee cruising along the beach and under our anchor line. He went by the boat, turned around, ate some sea grass and cruised on. After the anchor was pulled it was off to secret spot #3 where Katie found a very cool and large barnacle encrusted angel wing. It was another fun day on the water with Katie and Family. I look forward to our next adventure. Capt. Brian

Beautiful photos. It looks like Katie and her family had another great day. How very neat that you guys had such a close encounter with the manatee. What a memorable experience. And that angel wing is gorgeous, too, with the full spread of barnacles.

I'll be there next time. Just waiting until the weather drops to -20. Haha. Glad you guys had a great time, and the shirts look fantastic. Anyone looking for a great cruise, I certainly recommend Captain Brian.
