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.”

Good Times With Veteran Shellers Bonnie and Dean



















It is always a pleasure to take out Bonnie and Dean. They are long time shellers to the island (30 years). I enjoy walking, talking and listening to both Bonnie and Dean tell stories about shelling in the 80's, guides and trips they have had before. Bonnie found a very cool worm shell and Dean found an albino whelk. I found the largest tusk shell I have ever found (use the chapstick for size reference). Many shells were found and more memories made. Bonnie and Dean are both troopers and I look forward to seeing them in October.  Love you guys.          Capt. Brian

The SW Florida scenery is as beautiful as ever. Great shell finds, especially the huge tusk shell and angel wings...

Definitely and great day! And I know from experience that you have "the eye" for those tusk shells. That one is awesome!

I get excited when I find ANY tusk shell--the size of that one would put me over the moon!
