Exploring With Bonnie And Dean

Exploring With Bonnie And Dean

Bonnie and Dean have been coming to the islands for over three decades. I always enjoy our adventures on the water. Our adventure started just north of secret spot 13. Bonnie zigzagged back and forth on the beach while Dean cruised behind her picking up sea urchins. Next we went to a spot off the beaten path. Then we stopped by secret spot no name, enjoyed the view and told a few stories:)  Thank you Bonnie and Dean for another adventure on the water.

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.

    Looks like a lovely day on the water. And how cool to have the bird "hitchhike" and enjoy the boat ride, too….
