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.”

Adventures With Capt. Brian

Kevin and Shawn are always ready for an adventure. This day was no exception. We found the rare lions paw. We explored the back country then went to favorite island number one and walked the beach. The next part of the trip we observed Pre-Columbian shell mounds and had an in depth conversation about the architecture of the mounds. I enjoyed the questions from both Kevin and Shawn. They both have a knack for cultivating my mind. I look forward to my mind being cultivated on our next trip. Capt. Brian

May On The Water

Veteran shellers returned for a fun filled trip. We started by going to "little avocet island". This is a little sand bar that comes and goes throughout the year. It has not been there for 8 months but appeared 2 weeks before they arrived. After spending some time on this little speck of sand we traveled farther north. The Gulf waters were beautiful. Sand dollars were found along with many olive shells. Manatees and dolphins were spotted. On the return trip we saw my old friend the magnificent frigate bird. Gail and I both took many pictures of this close encounter. Thanks for a wonderful day on the water. Capt. Brian

Captain Brian Celebrates 20 Years on Captiva Island

I walked an old dirt road on Captiva that I used to walk 20 years ago.
I was happy to walk this dirt road once again.
