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 Two By Two

I enjoyed shell collecting with Marti and her daughter Dana.  The winds were strong out of the northwest. We got sand blasted by the 30 mile an hour wind. Hat's were flying off, sunglasses lost, then found, then lost. It was a shell of a day! Dana has a superior shelling eye. I was most impressed. She not only found cool finds, but managed to find two of each. Like two small horse conch, two turbines, three banded tulips, two sand dollars, two sharks eyes and many olives. We also found a large tusk shell.  It was a fun windy day of shelling.  Thanks Marti and Dana.
