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 Family

You can never learn enough about shells. This family knows their shells. Pat, Jen, Izzy, Ben ,Ursla and dad. I find myself researching uncommon shells they find on every trip. Ben found wentletraps, Jen found  a fossilized shark tooth, (in a very unique place) an amazing worm shell and a few semele shells with different colors. Izzy found a large rice shell. It was a shelling frenzy on the sandbar. The young shellers Ben and Izzy amaze me every time we go out. I am always learning more from this family."
Keep On Shelling" Capt. Brian

They found some nice treasures. Too bad a crab was living inside that huge whelk.
