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.”

Sanibel Shell Festival 2015




















Here are some highlights from the Sanibel Shell Festival last week.  It was good to see some old friends and make some new friends. This year I submitted two entries, an albino worm shell (which I didn't get an award for) and a photo of a live scallop shell.  I received a 3rd place ribbon for the photo.  See y'all soon!  Capt Brian

Congratulations on placing with the photo. It is a beautiful picture. Thanks for sharing photos from the shell festival. I wish I could have flown back for it. The amazing creativity and artwork is very inspiring. What a talented group of people. The display labeled as shell sampler looked neat. Sorry that your albino worm shell didn't place. It was cool.

I might be a bit biased, but if I were judging... Congratulations! That photo and the other scallop photo were my favorites from one of your posts. Not sure if I will eat scallops again, but the photos were beautiful!
