Fall Day at Cayo Costa State Park

Fall Day at Cayo Costa State Park

Beautiful day on the water with Doug and Kelly this week.  The water is warm and super clear. Shelling has been good and cooler Fall days are on the way.  Call early to reserve if you are thinking of going out on a private charter with me as I already have people booking for March. Hope to see you all soon!  – Capt Brian

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.
