Dean and Bonnie have been coming to Sanibel since the 1980's. Bonnie stepped off the boat and found a sand dollar then another and another and another. She also found sea urchins and a very cool jingle shell with both sides in tact. They are always fun to shell with and listen to their conversations. Bonnie enjoys making crafts out of shells such as ornaments and Christmas trees. Dean makes anything from wood for Bonnie's shell creations. They both are excellent shellers and always a joy to have on the 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.”
