BOOK A PHOTO SCOUTING TRIP
I found out about Captain Brian's boat charters through his blog and knew that we just had to make it a priority when visiting Sanibel and Captiva. We weren't disappointed and it was the highlight of our week.
I have been on 2 shelling trips with Brian, and both times were the highlight of my trip to Sanibel. Brian pays attention to the personalities of his clients to figure out what makes them "tick," and tailors his trip to them. In our case, he took time to point out eagles and dolphins and take time out for photo ops, as well as allow time for awesome shelling.
Brian is a walking Wikipedia on Captiva. I am sure we saw 30 Osprey nests and 50 Osprey. Then he took us snorkeling. We had our own equipment and was he right when he told us to bring it with because the guests before us wished they had had it. It made my day.
his was by far the best boat trip we have experienced on any of our trips to Florida!!! Captain Brian is so knowledgeable and that is what makes the trip so extra special. He knows so much history of the islands along with his expertise of the wildlife and nature. He took us to an island for incredible shelling where my oldest found a scotch bonnet!!!!!
We weren't sure what to expect and were a little nervous but Brian made us feel so comfortable and safe. I am a total city girl and I felt completely at ease hoping in and out of the water and even walking through the mangroves.
