Special Spots

Special Spots

The moon was just a sliver, the wind today was intense. I just had to take yet another photo of Cayo Costa. You can never take enough photos of special spots, like Cayo Costa.

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.

    Cayo Costa changes every time we visit. It's remarkable how the gulf carves new lines into the sea scape, and you never know what gifts the tide brings to the south tip. The perfect Scotch bonnet I have is one of my prized posessions…
    Truely a place to get to know yourself.

    I couldn't agree more Carolyn. I look forward to seeing you at Cayo Costa.
