Crane Viewing Blind Tours
A trained guide will accompany you to one of our prime viewing blinds along the Platte River. Blind tours are offered in the early morning, while the cranes roosting on the river, and in the evening, when the birds are returning to the river to roost for the night. Each tour lasts a maximum of three hours, which includes a presentation on the Great Sandhill Crane Migration before heading out to the blind. Participants will need to be able to walk about ten minutes over uneven terrain to reach the blind. Children must be 12 and up and accompanied by an adult.
 $25 / Person (+ Tax)

Please call if you have any questions.

Footbridge Evening Tours:
After a presentation on the Great Sandhill Crane Migration, you'll accompany your guide to our private bridge over the Platte River where you'll experience a 360-degree view of large crane flocks crossing the sky above as they travel to roost for the night. Bridge tours last a maximum of three hours. Visitors are free to depart when they wish but may not return to the bridge. Children must be 12 and up and accompanied by an adult.

Private Photo/Viewing Blinds:
These select blinds are designed for the serious nature enthusiast seeking the ultimate viewing and photo experience on the Platte—morning and evening! The photo/viewing blinds are not for everyone. Because the blinds are placed in extreme proximity to the sandhill crane roosts on the river, you will overnight in the blind and must remain inside so as not to disturb the birds. What you give up in creature comforts you more than make up for in spectacular morning and evening views.

 $200 / Blind (+ Tax)
Please call for details and to reserve your blind.
