Crane Viewing Tours

Group Viewing Blind Tours


A trained guide will accompany you to one of our prime viewing blinds on the Platte River. Blind tours are offered in the early morning, while the cranes are roosting on the river, and also in the evening, when the birds are returning to the river to roost for the night.

Each tour lasts approximately 2.5 hours, which includes a presentation on the Great Sandhill Crane Migration at the Crane Trust Nature & Visitor Center before you depart for the blind. Visitors 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.
