Photography And Shelling with Charlie and Louise

Photography And Shelling with Charlie and Louise

I enjoyed the company of Louise and Charlie on our adventure to the out Islands. Charlie took some great shots of the Osprey and shore birds. Louise and I walked and talked about different shell finds and adventures. I look forward to taking both Louise and Charlie out in the fall. Thank you for a very insightful trip.

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.

    I do too Kim. The colors this year have been amazing. I have taken hundreds of photos of the sky, water, and trees. I look forward to being out there today taking photos of the sky, water and trees. Thanks Kim.
