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.”

Carolina Shellers

Brooke and Kate can roll with the tide or whatever comes their way. We started off by exploring the flats where the morning light was beautiful. They enjoyed observing many live shells and learning about the ecosystems of the shell world. Next it was off to secret spot number 11. Kate found a few of her favorite shells and a few more. Brooke found a king's crown and a cone shell. She was excited to find both. I enjoyed the conversations from both as we searched for treasures by the sea. 
Thank you Brooke and Kate!   Capt. Brian

Time On The Island

Time lately has been going at a rapid pace. Many coals are in the fire. New projects are in the works. One project has to do with photography. Another project is south of here on an island that rhymes with tuba. I keep thinking of the quote by  Edna St. Vincent Millay  (Who was a early visitor to Sanibel) 
                                     My candle burns at both ends;
                                        It will not last the night;
                                     But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends-
                                        It gives a lovely light!
