Whooping Crane & Coastal Birding Tour

This 3-hour guided boat trip leaves from Rockport Tx and travels alongside Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, the winter home of the endangered whooping crane.  Participants will see numerous waterbirds.  Often the tour points out between 30 and 60 different species.  Whooping cranes begin arriving in coastal Texas in late October therefore this tour cannot guarantee that cranes will be sighted, as much of the flock will still be migrating.
