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.”

Signs of spring are in the air, land and sea. The water temperature has warmed up and all different kinds of sea creatures are showing their faces. I was fortunate to get a great viewing of a mother manatee and her new born. The weight of a newborn manatee is seventy pounds. A mature adult can weight up to two thousand pounds. The spotted eagle rays are always spectacular to see. A few southern stingray have been spotted on the beaches of Cayo Costa along with moon jellyfish. All signs of warmer weather.
