May Daze

Absolutely perfect day in May. Terri relaxed and explored with me this afternoon at secret spot 13. The water was stunning and the shelling was equally as pleasing to the senses. Three cones were found along with whelks, horse conchs, a worm shell, albino cockles, sharks eyes and a beautiful orange scallop. Thank you Terri for a beautiful day on the water. 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.

    Beautiful photos of a serene-looking afternoon.. The water looks so calm. Terry found some great shells. And, brittle star, too! And, how lucky to find albino shells. Another wonderful trip…
