03 Nov CAPTIVA SANIBEL: Local captain has provided guided tours at Cayo Costa for more than 20 years
Twenty-three years ago Capt. Brian Holaway began conducting guided tours at Cayo Costa State Park, which eventually turned into becoming a member of the nonprofit organization, Friends of Cayo Costa State Park.
The ability to escape from the mainland while experiencing the wild and nature is what continues to draw the captain to the island.
“The beach changes all the time,” Holaway said, adding that he recently saw driftwood he has not seen in 10 years due to storms passing by the island. “There are different ecosystems that have evolved.”
