Captain Tommy did a wonderful job of getting us close to the whooping Crane's. We got within 60 feet of a large male. He was also very knowledgeable about all the birds in the area.

I have always intended to go see the Whooping Cranes and this tour did not disappoint. Captain Tommy was very professional and informative and took us to many viewing points. We saw at least 20 Whooping Cranes , including a flight of 3 near the boat, which was awe inspiring. The captain pointed out numerous other species and obviously knows... More

I've been fortunate to take the whooping crane tour several times and it never disappoints. Another great trip the 3rd weekend of March. We saw about 15 whooping cranes and got within a few feet of one bird. The Captain and Amanda were very helpful and knowledgeable. Besides the whooping cranes we saw caracara, curlews, whimbrels, great blue herons, great... More

My daughter and I went out on your boat last week. We were so lucky to get on the evening before during spring break. We saw 12 Whoopers and many other species. Captain Tommy is very knowledgeable on the many different species of birds and also wildlife. I took over 4000 photos. I highly recommend taking this boat for the... More

We had great viewing of a number of birds. We had a long stay up close watching a Whooping Crane pair. The crew was friendly. It is a small boat so I felt this was a better experience than I had in the past with a larger boat on tour.

I can't say enough about how great this tour was. I took my teen aged son and my seven year old. Both loved it! Captain Tommy was knowledgeable, hilarious, and engaging. He let my 13 year old drive the boat for a bit, which blew his mind. Anytime both your kids are super into nature and outdoors, it's a good... More

The tour put us close to a pair of Whooping Cranes; it was great to see these elegant birds up close instead of very far away!

Had a great experience with this company. Our captain/guide was very knowledgeable. We saw so many more birds beside the cranes that we had gone there to see. I would definitely recommend this tour. Well worth every penny.

What a great adventure! The boat was comfortable, and the weather cooperated, too. The Captain knew where to find the birds and got us in very close. The narration of bird names and facts, and area landmarks & history was well done! Great fun up on the top deck taking lots of pictures. Well worth the money, and will do... More

I totally enjoyed birding with Captain Tommy. He pointed out many bird species that I wouldn't have spotted on my own. Binoculars are a MUST and I noticed that they had loaners available. I liked that he not only talked birds but also explained the litigation re freshwater inflows, pointed our the peninsulas and visual geography, etc. The weather couldn't... More
