Whooping Crane Tours

Bird & Nature Photography Tours

Our boat the, Jack Flash, is uniquely designed for photographers. The Flash has three different decks at separate elevations to give you the angle of your choice. Another great feature is the enclosed cabin so you can take a break and relax out of the elements. The absolute best feature is the true shallow draft capability. We are able to float at a depth of ten inches and can motor at eighteen inches. This allows you to get really close to the birds. It is not uncommon to get within 50 feet of Whooping Cranes and even closer for most Shore Birds.
