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.”

Tarpon Lodge with Nancy & Melissa




It was another great adventure with Nancy and Melissa. We started our trip by boating over to the Tarpon lodge for a delicious lunch. then it was off to favorite island number one. The storm clouds were building so we stayed at the north end of the island in a new hiding spot.(it worked great for riding the storm out.)  Nancy found a great whelk while Melissa took pictures of the birds and a rainbow. We followed the rainbow back to Captiva just ahead of the next wave of storms.  Two days later we went on another great cruise. This time the skies were a little more sunny and the dolphins were very playful as we observed sea turtles eating jellyfish.  It was a great day to observe nature on the water.
Thank you Melissa for taking all of the (great) photos above and
thank you Nancy for being the outdoor trooper that you are.
