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.”

Natural Pink Pearls

Rachel is a creative explorer of unique natural treasures of the sea. We share a common bond, "the rare pink pearl". I have learned a vast amount of knowledge about the mini shell world from Rachel. On a boat trip our conversation led to remote places, rare seashells and the pink pearl. She has not only acquired pink pearls but has made beautiful pieces of jewelry showing the special characteristics of this natural ocean gem. Here is a link to her site Natural Pink Pearls. If you would like to purchase her custom pink pearl jewelry, she's offering a 15% discount if you use the code Brian15. Thanks to Rachel I am the happy owner of two of these gems of the sea.
