The Marine World Around Us

The Marine World Around Us

The weather was perfect for Margaret, Manny, Jackie, Collin and Molly. They all enjoyed seeing the dolphin and learning about these marine mammals. The water was extremely clear so we all went for a walk in the sea grass learning about different marine habitat. The kids loved seeing a live sea urchin, a live whelk and horseshoe crabs. It is always fun with Margaret and Manny, this trip was extra fun showing the kids new experiences in the marine world.

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.

    It looks like it was a fun trip. It is great to see kids so excited about Florida's natural environment and the wonderful marine life it supports. They will remember cool trips like that for many years with fond memories.
