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.”

Flow Paddle Tours and Captain Brian

I recently went exploring via paddle board with a long time friend, Kim Hull, of Flow Paddle Tours, and her friend Alecia.  Kim is a marine biologist, excellent photographer, paddle boarder and has been studying dolphins in the Pine Island Sound Area for over fifteen years.  While paddle boarding we had a great time talking about cameras, dolphin, paddle boards and the future of our businesses.  After paddling, we took a break and shelled the beaches.  Kim found an Albino Fighting Conch which I am sorry to say that I did not get a picture of.  She captured the photo above of me holding a live Albino Lightning Whelk which we returned back to the water.  Kim is a true water person who has helped me with my photography and is always a knowledgeable resource of marine life.  I look forward to the next excursion on the water.

I've never used a paddle board - it looks like fun!

Do it! I love the paddle board. It alows me to go places and collect shells that most people don't go:)

Looks like fun. The photo of you kneeling on your board is a good one!

Hi Brian,
What an amazing day on the water we had! I was just looking at my shells, I love mini's... I'm sure Kim sent you all the pics, but I'd like to upload a few that I love. Let me know when the shell shows are, I'd like to enter a few of my finds. And thank you so much for going above and beyond to make sure my most fragile shells made it home safe and sound!! Alicia
