Great Family, Great time

The Johnson Family, from Minnesota, a favorite client, Melissa, took excellent photos of white pelicans, her dad found many sand dollars and Mom just loved the whole thing. She took home a moon snail, also called sharks eye.

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.

    And you are our favorite captain! We had a fabulous time with you over Thanksgiving and loved being able to meet Melanie and Sage. We got tons of great pictures, just haven't had time to do anything with them yet. Things have been very hectic here and the only thing that has kept me (Nancy) going the past few days is putting down a deposit on a condo for this coming Thanksgiving. Hopefully, we can sneak in a trip before then, too 🙂 We hope you enjoyed your Minnesota weather for a few days! Take care and stay warm… Brian, Nancy and Melissa
