I had a great outing with Captain Lori. She had amazing knowledge about the area and the birds. I got some great shots along with a wealth of information. I hope to return when the whooping birds return.

Captain Kevin was GREAT! He knew exactly where to go to find the best birds and to see the dolphins at their most active. He helped us amateurs know how to get the best shots. He taught us a lot about what we were seeing and was very patient with us; letting us take as long as we want, then allowing us to go home when we needed. He was very flexible, knowledgable and kind. We highly recommend Aransas Bay Birding Charters and look forward to booking with them again when the Whooping Cranes come back!

Kevin did a great job with a large group. We all had a great time. Will use him again. He worked very hard getting on fish and keeping all in bait and in the water.

This was our third charter with Kevin. His knowledge of the Whooping Cranes and desire to get us as many quality photo opportunities as possible keeps us coming back. His boat can get to amazing places, capable of operating in only inches of water. There are both upper and lower deck platforms offering good flexibility of perspectives and views of the cranes. Both decks are spacious enough for several tripods. I don't know anything about other crane/birding tour operators in the area but I can't imagine anyone better.

We had scheduled a trip for 12/29 which was predicted to be windy (and it is). We contacted Kevin and asked to be moved to another day. They were extremely flexible and moved us a day earlier to 12/28 which turned out to excellent weather wise and for viewing the Whooping Cranes. Lori did great job of finding the cranes, positioning us so that I could get good photos, then repositioning us for ever better views and photos of the cranes. In between crane photos she put us on a variety of water birds. She was excellent in identification and putting the boat in positions where I had the best light. My 11 year old grandson was with us and she found some dolphins which was the highlight of his trip. Next time I go I will definitely book with Lori and Kevin.
