Family Fun With Capt. Brian

Family Fun With Capt. Brian

The weather and water were perfect for a family outing. Neil, Kim, Alaina, Benjamin, and Charlie went exploring with me to one of of favorite spots. The kids asked great questions and Alaina was very good at shell identification. We saw dolphins, manatee,  live whelks and fighting conchs. The kids collected sand dollars and a cool coconut that was floating in the water. A fun time was had by all.  We all enjoyed the water, dolphins, manatee, and the crystal clear 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.
