Five Star Customer Reviews.....

"I was able to reschedule my original storm chasing expedition chase dates to a more active time.
Had I been with another storm chasing tour group, I would have lost my entire investment."  
R. King. 2016.

"Warren is the Michael Jordan of storm chasing!"   Dr. R. Moles. 2005.

"When COVID hit in early 2020, my deposit was quickly refunded when the expedition was cancelled. Other storm chasing tour groups
did not refund their client's funds and completely abandoned them. I would never storm chase with anyone else."
D. Cook. 2020

"Five tornadoes on the first day! The view from the front seat was worth everything."   M. Lawton. 2019



Private Tornado and Storm Chasing Tours Adventures - A must read!

We are ultra exclusive: We currently accept 1 to 3 participants per year and the positions are filled quickly.

Superior, 100% success rate: Because we allow participants to reschedule, we have a 100% severe weather intercept record, the highest in the industry. Our standby chase option
  has a 100% tornado interception rate over the last 10 years.

Adventure-based team: Prior adventure or extensive travel experience is not required, but suggested. You will be interacting with an experienced team of professionals from medical,   tactical and exploration backgrounds.

You get what you pay for: Your view to some of the planet's most exciting weather occurs in the front seat of a genuine chase intercept vehicle. There are several excellent, van-based   tornado chase tour groups and we will be happy to refer inquiries. Some people do not mind this tornado chasing format. However, we cater to those discriminating individuals who prefer a   more professional, private and exclusive adventure, avoiding the crowded interior of a van filled with people you may or may not like for endless hours. We also lodge in the nicest hotels   available.

Avoid wasted travel days: Most storm tour companies have designated pick-up and drop off locations that cannot be changed. This means your actual chase days could be cut by 2-4 days   to allow for pick-up or drop offs. This extra travel time, often exceeding 500 miles per day can also be exhausting and dangerous. This is a major consideration. For those participants with the   ability to make last minute, in-bound and / or outbound travel changes, we can often avoid any lost chase days due to travel.

Severe weather guarantee: We do not want to take your money for nothing in return. We allow rescheduling in the event of non-pursuable severe weather. In most instances we will
  refund your final payment if we cancel the entire expedition in advance due to the lack of pursuable severe weather. A 50% deposit is required to hold a date. In most instances, this
  deposit cannot be refunded, but can be applied to future storm chasing dates on a priority basis. (See Storm Chasing Tours Adventures - Private and Exclusive basic terms of deposit
  listed below).

If the Participant cancels, or the chase is cancelled by the Provider due to the lack of pursuable weather, the deposit will not be refunded, but funds may be applied to a future chase period if such periods are available in the current or following year. The Participant agrees to these specific deposit terms upon the Provider's receipt of deposit. We are the only professional chase organization to offer a free rescheduling option.


Disclaimer: Any activity near a thunderstorm (or travel to or from storms) is inherently dangerous. It is impossible to remove all dangers from pursuing storms as some are obvious while others may be complex and impossible to control or predict without completely eliminating the very nature of storm chasing. Storm chasing tours, tornado vacations, storm chasing holidays and similar activities will involve the risk of personal injury, property loss and death. This apples to all tornado chasing tours, tornado chase vacations holidays or tours.
