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.”

An Epic Find

 Kathy and I traveled by boat to explore new territory. She has a knack for finding great treasures from the sea whether it is a small tulip or a perfect sand dollar. On this trip she found an amazing lightning whelk and the biggest horse conch I have ever witnessed in the wild. The opening of this large conch was over 5 inches. It was a once in a lifetime find! I was happy to be a part of this epic shell find. WOW!
