Captain Kevin met us before dawn and provided not only great photography opportunities of birds (whooping cranes!), but his knowledge of the area and its history gave great background information. We are new to the area and found out so much. A wonderful morning!

Highly recommend Kevin Sims. With only our group of 4 on the boat we had lots of room for ourselves and our camera equipment. Kevin gave us great views of the birds and kept us out for several hours. We definitely got our money's worth.

A 6-hour boat charter to observe and photograph the wildlife of the Aransas NWR. A wonderful morning spent cruising around the islands and reefs with Captain Lori. We saw plenty including Whooping Cranes. Lori is very knowledgable and great company. A highly recommended trip.More

They were very flexible to our time frame and proved to be expert on the birds in the area. We got very close to the Whoopers and picked up at least three other "lifers" to our bird list.
