Join us to photograph the Texas Gulf coast during the spring migration period.  See one of the rarest birds in North America, along with overwhelming number of resident and migrating shore birds.    I have 4 openings for a boat tour (4-6 hours) to Port Aransas Wildlife refuge, named the #5 best birding area in the USA.    This boat has a shallow draft which allows it to get into areas that larger boats are not able to. This also allows the boat to get in close to the birds and have the boat sit on the bottom to make it as stable as possible.  If you enjoy bird photography this is the boat for you.
