Trouble in The Tropics

Trouble in The Tropics

I have a computer down, along with many photos I want to share. Thanks for being patient. I have been shelling, exploring, and making the strange familiar and the familiar strange. I will soon post more. Capt. Brian

Brian Holaway

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.

    Sorry to hear about your computer woes. It's always a pain when technology fails us. I keep thinking about our adventures, and it is keeping me grounded right now. Wishing we were back on the island….. Time seems to be slipping away.
