Special "Standby" Chase Adventures Now Available! You must be ready to chase 24 to 72 hours in advance. Available from from February 1, through June. If you would like to be placed on our notification list, please join my Twitter Account.
Cost and terms are listed in the scheduling section below. Of our past six standby chase adventures, all have witnesses a one or more tornados!
Why our storm chasing adventures are so popular:
We are the only professional adventure outlet that offers a 100 percent money back guarantee if the chase is cancelled by us
due to no severe weather! We will notify you seven to three days in advance if the forecast is a bust, and you will receive a 100% deposit or total (if paid) refund for your tour. You can also choose to apply the deposit to a future rescheduling if available. Why throw thousands of dollars down the drain watching clear skies, which often happens.
Your chase adventures are private, one on one with Warren.
You can now choose from regular storm chase tours or photography adventures at lower prices!
We chase in a safe, modern and comfortable - genuine chase intercepter! -- NOT in crowded rental vans. You get the best view -- always!
You are a genuine part of an actual volunteer chase crew, not just a tourist! (Participation is optional).
Learn to photograph storms like a pro with an award winning photojournalist and extreme weather photographer.
We always try to stay in the nicest lodging facilities in the area. (Some tours stay in lower quality lodging).
Our "stand-by" chase option has a 100% success rate for tornado interception.
We offer a no interest payment plan so you can pay for your adventure in advance! (Initial deposit still required).
"Best time I ever had, hands down! Better than any regular storm tour or tornado tour." D.
Connell. Executive storm and tornado chasing volunteer 2005.
"Warren is the Michael Jordan of chasing!" Dr. R. Moles. Executive tour 2005.
"My wife and I had a nightmare experience with an upstart "storm tour" in 2004. One man in the van never showered and another reeked of cigarettes. Warren's adventure was a blessing. The front seat ride was well worth the extra money... like the difference
between sitting in 22A on a 747 and being in the cockpit!" Mr. A. Brown. Executive storm and tornado
chasing volunteer 2006.
I've been fascinated with Storms since I was young. Both my 7th and 8th Grade Science Projects were on tornados. So, since I was turning 50 in 2012, I decided to look at a "Storm Chase Tour" for myself several years prior.... (continued on next page)
Warren Faidley was the first, full-time, storm chasing journalist, professional
photographer and cinematographer. Warren is a 20+ year veteran of chasing some of the planet's most violent weather. He is a best selling author, award winning photographer, international lecturer and a foremost severe weather survival expert. He is one of the few individuals who has experienced both an F5 tornado and a category five hurricane.
You have likely seen Warren featured on television specials and news programs like The O'Reilly Factor, CNN, The Discovery Channel, National Geographic and The Weather Channel. Unlike the sometimes reckless and dangerous chasers seen in the media, Warren is a responsible storm chaser. If you are unfamiliar with Warren Faidley, his
background, credits and history, we urge you to visit his biography page.

So you want to go storm chasing!
The Central Plains tornado season will begin in late April and run through mid-June. Some dates are reserved well
in advance, so please book soon to reserve the most popular weeks. Although there are numerous tornado tour and tornado holiday groups offering rides in vans packed with people, we are different. (You get what you pay for). Warren's adventures are private. If you are interested in a
professional, hands-on storm chasing experience -- this is for you. As we are often told by past adventurers, the small extra cost to chase
in a private setting is a smart investment for a once in a lifetime adventure.
We generally limit volunteers to one per
chase vehicle. With us, you will have a comfortable seat with a
window view, as opposed to most larger tour groups that seat 9-12 people in a single van, often driving 300 to 500 miles per day! You will
be able to ask Warren questions at any time. In addition, since our meeting, pick-up and drop off
locations will be located in "active" areas, you do not waste precious chase days traveling to hot
spots from distant locations. In fact, we can often customize
your pick-up and drop off locations saving you multiple (wasted) days of driving. This single factor
alone makes the extra investment worthwhile -- often turning a 5 day chase into a 6 or 7 day chase. In addition to this, we always try to stay in comfortable, higher end hotels when available.
Warren makes his living by getting as close to the action as possible (in a safe manner), you are guaranteed the best chance of witnessing amazing events.
Warren also offers storm and landscape photography adventures. Yes, we still chase storms, but the priority is storm photography and videography. On off days we will travel to scenic locations where you will have to opportunity to accomplish breathtaking images. The photography adventures are available during the tornado season in the Central Plains and during the summer monsoon in Arizona. Please note our guarantee of severe weather does not apply to photography adventures.
Confidentiality and privacy is our specialty for high-profile clients and celebrities. Our clients
have included sporting figures, actors, doctors, corporate CEO's and everyday people who want to do their lifetime adventure the right way. Our volunteer
adventures are very popular as gifts to students and family members.
Warren currently offers four types of storm chasing and
tornado chase volunteer opportunities:
1: Springtime storm chases and tornado chasing in Tornado Alley -- you ride with Warren! (Available as fixed

2: Springtime and summertime storm and landscape photography adventures.
3: Executive Monsoon Safari and Photography Adventures during the July summer

4: Executive customized chases, education and extended storm chasing during and after

flexibility on noted dates can be discussed.

adventures, tornado tours, tornado alley tours, tornado vacations, storm vacations, chaser tours,
