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.”

Sheri and Sam Collecting Seashells

Sheri and Sam are veteran shellers to the Islands. We started the trip by going to a small sand spit in the Gulf of Mexico. Next it was off to favorite island number one. Sam shelled, swam and played on her boogie board. Sheri has an excellent shelling eye. She had many good finds, a worm shell, gaudy natica, common nutmeg and many beautiful olives.  I enjoyed shelling with  both Sam and Sheri and hearing about their latest horse stories. I look forward to next year's trip.
