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.”

The Elusive Gaudi Nautica

I was more than happy to find this Gaudi Nautica. This is one that will go in my special collection. The colors were perfect and it was the largest one I have ever collected.  Shelling can be elusive at times. Today things were crystal clear. (Like Cayo Costa in May)

Awesome! I found one in 2010 with lots of color remaining, but not as large as this one. It's a beauty!
