Gail and Zak

The weather was perfect for boating with Gail and Zak. Zak is a skilled boatman who is eager to learn new skills while we are on the water. Gail is an avid sheller who enjoyed seeing the dolphin and hearing them breath. The bird life was most enjoyable as well as the company. I always look forward to time on the water with Gail and Zak. Thank you both for a great day on the water.

Brian Holaway

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.
