Capt. Brian Completes Wilderness First Aid

Capt. Brian Completes Wilderness First Aid

Today I completed CPR and First Aid training. The instructor was superb. He focused on wilderness first aid and what to do when things happen on the water. He had a vast knowledge on different situations and offered new techniques for handling those situations. I learned a lot from this class. I look forward to adding new items to my wilderness first aid kit.

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.

    Excellent idea to take the class – you just never know when you might need to call on that knowledge. Better to be prepared, right?
