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.”

Julie and Bob From Canada


Julie and Bob are well travelled shellers. I enjoyed listening to Julie's shell stories from Cuba. (Ahh, Cuba, in my dreams.) Bob was easy going and enjoyed the solitude of a beach empty of people. Julie and I walked, talked and stopped to take a few photos of the texture of one of my many favorite trees. Julie found quite possibly the most unique Florida cone that I have seen collected. The colors were amazing and the size for that cone was huge. (I wish I had taken more photographs with a different background) What a great find!  I look forward to next year when we explore again.

Sweet pictures of the tree. I just love wood thats been sitting in the elements and weathered. It would be cool to have a nice chunk of that tree.

Great, love the cone. They should enter it in the shell fair! :D
