Photograph 5000+ Swallow-tailed Kites with DV!

Updated: Sep 21, 2022

Swallow-tailed Kite Tour - Deland, Florida

Available Dates: July 8 - 21, 2021

We hope you can join us to photograph over 5000 Swallow-tailed kites in a couple hundred-yard area on a lake in Deland, Florida. Tours are aboard our 2019 24 ft. 200 hp pontoon boat. It's Audubon's most beautiful bird of prey (of course, Dick would say after the Bald Eagle!), with its deeply forked tail and bold black-and-white plumage, it is unmistakable in the summer skies. Hanging motionless in the air, swooping and gliding, rolling upside down and then zooming high in the air with scarcely a motion of its wings, the Swallow-tailed Kite is a joy to watch.


Morning Tour - 3+ hrs

$150 per person

All the best,

Dick Vautrinot
