Turtle Workshop

Turtle Workshop

A person can never learn enough. I was thrilled to attend a workshop for turtle monitoring today. Turtles are one of my favorite sea creatures.  I am excited to pass  along on our beach walks some new information that I learned. The most interesting things I learned about are the different turtle tracks and how to identify different species. I look forward to putting these new skills to use. Turtle season begins in May and ends in October.   Capt. Brian

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.

    That is really cool. I have seen turtle tracks a couple of times on Sanibel, but I didn't realize the turtles leave different tracks. I want to hear about the turtles in May.
