Expert On FL History, Boating & Barrier Islands

Captain Brian Holaway

I have been living in Southwest Florida and guiding out of Captiva Island for over 20 years as a nature guide, shelling guide, Certified Florida Master Naturalist, and some refer to me as a coastal renaissance man. I have always had a love for the water and islands, so getting to spend an average of over 200 days a year on the waters in Southwest Florida gives me an abundance of experience with people, the environment and local culture around Pine Island Sound.

I love to give people an experience on the water that opens their eyes to something new or a way of seeing their natural surroundings that they may not have experienced if they went exploring on their own. My backyard is Pine Island Sound, and I am proud to share my lens of living and guiding around the islands with guests and residents of Southwest Florida.

Southwest Florida has been a traveler's destination for centuries. The Spanish first visited these waters in 1513. The native Calusa Indians that called this place home greeted them.

My thoughts never drift too far from the island of Cayo Costa. I have been intrigued by this barrier island since the first time I stepped foot on it, on a beautiful June day over two decades ago.
