I enjoyed taking world travelers from California around the islands. We enjoyed photographing wild dolphin, manatee and landscapes. Heather, Robbie, Ray and the twins, Madison and Rob. The trip was filled with beautiful beach sandollars and many unique shells from the island. Robbie asked if there were any geocatches on the island. I said, “why yes there is” and we walked up the beach and discovered one.   Madison found an excellent white fighting conch as you can see in the picture (great find Madison).  The trip was filled with new adventures for the kids and the parents.  I enjoyed the whole thing – being a kid and a parent.

I have been a Shelling Guide to Cayo Costa State Park since 1995. Many people know me as the Shelling Guide and Captain with Captiva Cruises over the past 20 years. In 2016 I began solely offering private small boat charters to the islands of Pine Island Sound including Cayo Costa State Park, Cabbage Key, Useppa Island, Pine Island and North Captiva. I am a certified Florida Master Naturalist, licensed USCG Captain, avocational photographer, seashell enthusiast and passionate about the history, people and culture of Southwest Florida, especially Cayo Costa. I volunteer as a member of Friends of Cayo Costa State Park and have great respect for the heritage of Cayo Costa. My goal is to provide guests with an overall experience and appreciation for the waters, islands, shells, plants, marine life, wildlife, history and people of this unique area of Southwest Florida.
