Whooping Crane Boat Tours
Every year, from November through early April, the Wharf Cat winds its way through the vast Aransas Bay complex in Texas to the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge where magnificent, endangered whooping cranes make their winter home. Along the way, birders view coastal scenery and observe many species of birds that frequent the barrier islands and reefs. The Wharf Cat's licensed captains and professional narrators will entertain you with detailed information throughout our whooping crane boat tours. Local naturalists narrate our tours and share their knowledge of whooping cranes, past and present plus many other species of birds and provide information for beginner, intermediate and advanced bird watchers.
