Captiva Island Sunset

Captiva Island Sunset

The light was unbelievable tonight. I took several photos on the bay side of Captiva Island, while cleaning the boat. On my way home the light and sunset were spectacular. I had to stop and take more photos. By the time I reached the south end of Captiva Island, the sky was on fire. I had to stop a second time. I ran to the beach and took pictures of the last orange glow of the day. Every sunset leads to a new 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.
