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.”

Janet From Illinois

I enjoyed the afternoon with Janet from Illinois. The weather was absolutely perfect and the water clear. Janet has an excellent shelling eye and a great knowledge of the shells. I was most impressed. The time seemed to fly as we walked and talked. We talked about Ann Morrow Lindbergh and shells from from far away places. Some of the favorite finds were an "almost albino"whelk, an albino cockle, sunrise tellins, and tusk shells. Thank you Janet from Illinois for an educational walk and talk on the beach.

Lots of people from Illinois down there lately. Wish I was one of them. :-(

Wish you were too. I have a whole day planned for when you get down here and the list keeps growing.

We can't wait!

Just want to say thanks again for a great trip. It was really amazing how I mentioned that I'd love to find a Sunrise Tellin, a shell that I'd read about but never seen before, and in the next hour or so we found several! I'm looking forward to cleaning up that pretty welk. Love the smell of shells boiling on the kitchen stove. It's the next best thing to being there! Looking forward to another trip some day. All the best to you!
