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.”

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

Looks like it was a beautiful day with some great shelling finds! Love the murex and sand dollars. And, seeing dolphins and manatees is always a special treat.

What a beautiful day! Doesn't get any better than blue skies, calm water, dolphins and a nice Shark's Eye :-)

We had a wonderful day! It was the best shelling of our entire week. Seeing the Frigates was exciting, as well as the manatee. I was never so wet, though, as we bounced over the rough waves, but the day was a blast, as usual! Thanks so much!!
