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.”

Nancy and her family have been clients for over ten years. On this trip it was just Nancy. We spent the afternoon and evening boating, shelling, watching wildlife and listening to the sounds of nature. We shelled Avocet Island and an island north of Avocet. Then an early dinner at Nancy's favorite restaurant and Melissa's too, The Tarpon Lodge on Pine Island. The weather was ominous as we ate dinner. The clouds were amazing to photograph.We caught a little hole in the weather to travel back to Captiva. Nancy is always up for any adventure. We had many adventures on this trip.
     Thank you Nancy for another day full of exploring and Happy Birthday!

It was a beautiful and very relaxing day on the water! I enjoyed every minute!! The gulf was so calm, the water as clear as I have ever seen it and the colors absoutely gorgeous. Dinner at the Tarpon Lodge was the best ever - might have had something to do with the extra coffee drink I had while we waited for the weather to clear :-) Heading back to Captiva in the light rain was fun, too, thanks to my "nice jacket". Thanks again for a great day, Captain Brian!!!

I thought I recognized Avocet Island! Hope you had the island to yourself this time. :-) Loved the cloud photos.

The weather looks a bit different than our trip out in April! I was sad to miss a beautiful day out on the water. I'll start counting down the days until August!

Morgan, Avocet island is a sandbar that formed off of North Cap and south of Cayo a couple of months ago. I call it Avocet Island because of the Avocet birds i saw there. I hope it is still there when you get here in March. If it is we will go there on our way to secret spot no number.
