Eagle Preserve Float Trip

Your tour begins with a relaxing 40-minute drive up the Haines Highway, a National Scenic Byway, to the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve. Watch for moose and swans in the marshlands as you head up the Chilkat River Valley. Your river guide will take you silently down the river aboard an 18' inflatable raft (no white water)-the best way to observe eagles drawn to feed on the plentiful salmon. Bears and wolves are also frequent guests at the feast. Not only rich in wildlife, the preserve is also a place of incredible beauty, with towering mountains, hanging glaciers and lush forests. You will float past the Native village of Klukwan where the Tlingit people have lived for centuries on the bounty of this beautiful wilderness.
