Off The Beaten Path With Kathy

Off The Beaten Path With Kathy

Kathy and I spent the day exploring the beaches and some new locations. We found a live cone shell, which was exciting for both of us. Neither one of us had seen this species live before. (no live shells were taken)  I always look forward to exploring with Kathy, this day was no exception.  Thank you Kathy for another day of exploring the islands.

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.
