Lauren, Grant, Dean, Beck and family traveled with me on another beautiful day. Lauren is the "sandollar queen". She has collections from many different locales. She added a few more to her collection on this trip. Grant and the kids waded in the clear water and helped find sand dollars in between playing catch with the football. We also saw the manta rays again and a large live horse conch. The rays cruised back and forth while we were cruising on the beach. The weather couldn't have been better. I was happy to have this fun family from Maine come down for a break from the snow.
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.”
