The Skimmer is Back

Rockport Birding and Kayak Adventures continues the tradition of Captain Ted's Whooping Crane Tours aboard the Skimmer. The Skimmer is fast and quiet. She drafts 2.5 feet and cruises comfortably at 25-30 mph making her the fastest birding tour vessel in the area.



Built for birding, she carries up to 46 passengers and will maneuver into remote birding areas. 

This gives you an unparalleled vantage point to observe and photograph the abundant bird and wildlife species our area has to offer.
