Literature, Writers And A Beautiful Beach

Literature, Writers And A Beautiful Beach

I spent the afternoon exploring the out islands with Ed and Barbara.  The bird life on this afternoon was amazing and the colors of the water’s edge was equally pleasing to the eyes. Ed and I enjoy some of the same writers and it is always a pleasure talking literature with Ed. Ed has been an island traveler for decades who has many stories to tell. Thank you Ed and Barbara for a beautiful day on the water and great conversation. 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.

    Looks like a beautiful trip! Blue skies, green water, black skimmers, a cute ghost crab and my favorite shells!! Doesn't get much better than that! Just a whole lot of rain here – the Mississippi River took a shortcut through our back yard this morning!

    Thanks so much for posting such high-res pics. They are gorgeous on my computer. The colors are clear and crisp. Either my eyes are deceiving me, or you have a bird on your boat! Love it!

    Janet, Good eye! There was a bird on my boat that is why I took the photo.
