Great Day with Penny and Katie

Great Day with Penny and Katie

Exploring with Katie and her mom, Penny, is always fun. They are up for whatever comes their way.  The weather was perfect for our trip. Many dolphin were spotted on our way to secret spot 11. The beach was filled with a carpet of shells. I enjoyed walking and talking with Penny and Katie as we shelled. It was another great trip with long time clients and friends.
  Thank you for a wonderful day.    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.

    What a great day on the water. A nice assortment of shells were found. And how lucky to find a brittle star, too!

    Any beautiful day on the water like that one is idyllic for us land-locked northerners! Great finds!
