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.”

Birthday On The Beach With The Miller Family

The Miller family have traveled with me to the out islands for a number of years. Three weeks ago Corey the father called and said, "All my daughter wants for her eighth birthday is to go out with Captain Brian". I thought it would be a great idea to get a cake and surprise her and the rest of the family. While the family was out snorkeling and swimming I brought the cooler with the cake in it and all of the provisions for an island birthday party. It turned out great! The weather and water was perfect. Great treasures were found on the beach and in the water. Graham found a large anchor (that is currently in the back of my truck) and Chloe found a shiva shell that was very large. I always enjoy the time on the water with the Miller family. Happy Birthday Quincy!
