Guaranteed Whooping Crane tours between November-March

Capt. Chads shallow drafting boats will get you closer to the birds than many other's. It easily drafts less than 7" of water whice will allow us to get all the way to the shorelines and flats to get that great shot.

Although we provide birding,nature and photography trips year around. November-March is the best opportunity to see the Very Popular Whopping Crane!
