Join the Tornado Hunter team for the bucket list trip you always wanted. Spend 9 days  with the crew in Tornado Alley as part of the team. Storm chasing is a team game and we need all hands on deck. You will not be an innocent bystander…the regular vacation rules do not apply. Work the radar, navigate, learn how to forecast severe weather and get into the heart of the action. 

If you are a photographer, this trip has an added bonus for you. You will learn how to make your camera sing as we criss-cross the great plains in search of the best that mother nature can dish out. Photographers will learn advanced techniques of shooting on the fly, timelapses, night photography, lightning and if we are lucky the grand daddy of all weather phenomenon…tornadoes. 

We get so many requests for ride-alongs and now we finally have the chance! We will not be filming for the show ‘Tornado Hunters’ while we are travelling with you, however we will be filming. This means that if some really great stuff happens, there is always a chance that it makes it into the show.


Your days will be spent:

  • Storm Chasing and travel for 9 days
  • Long days on the road throughout Tornado Alley
  • Down days will involve a variety of activities. MLB Baseball, sightseeing, great restaurants and tours
  • Navigating, Driving, Working Radar
  • Photographing severe weather events and aftermath

Cost for the expedition is $3200 pp

  • Up to 4 group Suppers on non-chase/travel days
  • All travel costs from Regina, Saskatchewan
  • Accommodations (double occupancy)
  • Camera Training/Forecasting Training/Radar

Notes 

 

  • All trips are 9 days based on weather. This means that if the weather dictates, trips may begin and end a day early.
  • Guests will need to have up to 1 day of flexibility on departure and will be given 72 hours if such a change in schedule is required
  • All Guests must sign our liability waiver and record a video affidavit of such waiver
  • All Guests must have a valid passport
  • All Guests must be legally able and eligible to enter the United States. Guests left at the US border crossing due to ineligibility will not be refunded or compensated. Criminal record, DUI, previous entry refusal are all reasons to not sign up for this trip.
  • All Guests must inform at time of registration of any serious food allergies
  • Due to the nature of the excursion, sadly, those with limited physical capacity will not be able to participate.
  • Storm Chasing has its moments. It’s not for everyone and it can be both physically, mentally and emotionally draining.
  • When required due to circumstances, we are obligated to stop and help when tragedy strikes. This again, is not everyone’s cup of tea. Bad things often happen around tornadoes.
  • If a guest decides they are not up to it, they will be solely responsible for the costs associated with early departure.
  • There is limited space on board our two vehicles.  Guests will be required to pack efficiently.
  • The storm chase schedule can be gruelling. Late nights, and early mornings are normal. Eating on the go is also part of the reality on the road.
