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.”

Birding and Shelling


The boat was full of avid birders and veteran shell collectors - Donna, Max, Nancy, Bruce and Mimi. Donna wanted to see a magnificent frigate bird and as fate would have it, we observed one while sitting on the boat at the dock. The trip was filled with dolphin watching and many species of birds.  The shell collecting was also good. Highlights of shells found were Nancy finding a great piece of a lions paw and Donna found a large baby's ear.  Mimi was delighted observing the bird life. She also found some beautiful perfect worm shells. The weather was like a postcard.  I enjoyed watching the wildlife fly into the view of the passengers.

Every time you mention "frigate" birds I have to laugh thinking of last year when you pointed them out to us and we thought you said "friggin'" birds. LOL!! It still cracks me up.

There were "friggin" birds every where on the island yesterday. I have never seen so many different types of birds in one place. Later in the day at the Lighthouse the pelicans & seagulls were feasting on a school of something then the dolphins showed up with a baby dolphin in tow. Great bird watching day.
