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.”

Early Morning Light











Howdy folks, the year has started out very busy. But not busy enough to take photos of the pre dawn light over the islands. I love following the changing light in the morning.

Beautiful photos. It is certainly uplifting to look at the tranquility of the water , especially when it has been so cold and snowy / icy here in the Baltimore-Washington area lately. Thanks for posting those pictures.

Kathy, You are welcome. It was one of those mornings. I took over a hundred photos of the changing light. The smell and feeling of sliding over the water on that morning with my camera was strong.

Captain Brian, what gorgeous photos. I wish we could have stayed a few more days. Our next will need to start in the early morning hours. Until then, please keep posting your photos.
