Out West

Out West

Life on the Great Plains. Always refreshing to go back to the land you were chiseled from.

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.

    Wow! I'm hearing the Chicks sing "Wide Open Spaces". Amazing colors & that wagon wheel gate is so cool. Hope you had a great time. You probably needed to balance the water with some earth :D.

    Great pictures – I especially liked the lightening one and the barbed wire ones. Where did you all go? We just got back from Colorado. I loved the mountains!
