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.”

Seashell Collecting with Shaun and Kevin

Great day of shelling with Kevin and Shaun. A beautiful gaudia nautica was found among many other gifts from the sea. The shell of the day was a shell I have not had the pleasure of seeing found in 2 decades of shelling ... a cowrie. It was broken but none the less a treasure. You never know what the sea will throw your way.  This  day it showed us all something new and that is the beauty of shelling. Thank you Kevin and Shaun for a wonderful trip.

Shelling With Margaret And Manny

It was a great day of exploring with Margaret and Manny. They are always up for whatever comes there way. Manny has a contagious smile and loves being on the water. Margaret loves finding unique treasures on the beach. She has collected shells from many different places around the Caribbean. I enjoyed walking and listening to her stories. Thank you Margaret and Manny for another special trip.

Photography With Kristin

Kristin loves taking pictures of life on the flats. We spent 2 days exploring the shallow areas of Pine Island Sound. Kristin took many photos of live shells and the wildlife on the flats. I always learn something from Kristin on our trips. She has a unique eye for capturing  the light and angle of what she is photographing. Thank you Kristin for two days of photography and exploring.
