Deb and her family have been shelling on the islands for over 25 years. Her kids Kevin and Megan have grown up shelling and I enjoyed hearing their shelling stories. Deb shared her shelling tips and what she does with the shells as we walked the beach. Kevin and his girlfriend covered a lot of ground and had some great finds. We had a great day of shelling. Deb's words when she got off the boat were, "now this is what shelling should be like". It was a fun trip with experienced shellers from the great state of Nebraska.

“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.”
