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.”

Shelling The Grass Flats

I enjoyed showing Susan and her daughter Rachel the grass flats, explaining the live shells and the botany of the mangroves.( No live shells were taken) After exploring the grass flats we traveled to Cayo Costa. The water was calm and  inviting. The beach was quiet and relaxing. The shells found are pictured above- Lightning whelks, rose tellins, olives, a large banded tulip, pear whelk, Susan's first angel wing, and a beautiful large kings crown. I had a wonderful time and enjoyed the conversations as much as the azure water we traveled on.
