Beautiful February Day On The Water

Beautiful February Day On The Water

Another fun adventure with Morgan, Chad and Chad’s brother. We started on the flats exploring and taking photos. Many live shells were observed, but none taken. We headed off to secret spot no number for a quick stop, then onto secret Z spot. The beach was beautiful and the walk was full of surprises. On our return trip we watched a dolphin shimmy over a sand bar into deeper water. It was another beautiful February day.

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.

    Once again, we had such an awesome time! Holy cow is it a lot of work getting those barnacles off though…we did the best we could before we left, and had the shells shipped to us. We'll still have some work to do when they get here! Desperately wishing we were back in sunny south FL rather than frigid MN. Thanks again for an awesome time!
