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.”

Montana and Minnesota Ladies

Great day on the water with a happy group of ladies. I knew it was going to be a great trip when Ann peered over the bow of the boat and said "you are wearing a different hat Capt. Brian." Ann is from Minnesota and her cousins Lynn, Pattie and Lori are from Montana.  Lori's laugh should be a ring tone. Pattie is sharp as a whip and made me laugh. Lynn is an avid sheller and has a great collection. Ann is a crazy sheller and shell crafter. (I am going to do a blog on her wild shell wall she created, so stay tuned for that one)  We left the dock as the sun was rising. The ride out to the island was filled with smiles. Ann stepped of the boat and found the most amazing leafy jewel box that I have seen in 20 years. (I personally have never found one.)  We all enjoyed the sounds of the morning on the beach. The beach was stunning. (no matter how many times I go there, it still is inspiring to the eye) We all enjoyed the beach and I didn't want to leave but I had to get back to the opening ceremonies of the Sanibel Shell Fair. Thank you ladies for a happy day on the water!
