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.”

Guest Speaker at Florida Gulf Coast University


Last week I had the pleasure of being a guest speaker for a Marine Systems Class at Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU).  The focus was on a chapter called the "Dynamic Shoreline" and I was happy to be able share some of the pictures I have taken on the dynamic shoreline of Cayo Costa Island.  I was able to provide first hand knowledge of how the shoreline changes with the wind, water and waves through various pictures I have taken over the past 20 years. I enjoyed reviewing old notes, papers and books on Cayo Costa in preparation for this college class.  Hopefully the students gained some knowledge and enjoyed my presentation as much as I did.

Sure wish Jackie, Kathy and I could have attended. I'm sure you've seen a lot of change over 20 years.

What a great experience to be able to share your knowledge with the next generation. Wish I was there to hear you. See you in Nov!

It was a lot of fun going over information and photos I had not looked at in over a decade. Susan, as far as the latin I brushed up on some(pun intended) and have a new species I am working on. I was hoping to get conformation when I was at FGCU. But it looks like it will have to wait till I can get back down to the campus.
