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.”

Selena The Sheller

Selena and Don spent the day with me exploring the out islands. Selena has been shelling all of her life and her goal is to find one of every species.  The morning was spent on a remote stretch of beach shelling. Next we anchored the boat out in the Gulf and enjoyed lunch and good conversation as dolphins swam nearby. We pulled the anchor and traveled to another unique spot to explore the grass flats. I enjoyed the conversation with Don as we walked and talked about books.  It was a wonderful day on the water with shellers from the Lone Star State. I look forward to next year's adventures.

It looks like another great day with lots of wonderful shells collected. I love those kings crowns. And what luck in collecting so many perfect sand dollars on one trip! Awesome.

Those are fabulous Crowns! I assume those were found on the flats? What a wonderful looking day!
