“We spent 5 glorious hours on a gentle float trip down the Chilkat river through the Eagle Preserve which has been featured in National Geographic as having the highest concentration of Bald Eagles in the world. We spotted over 40 bald eagles and watched them fight over fish appetizers. We stopped to check grizzly and wolf tracks on sand bars along the way. Great trip and great folks. P.S. Ask Andy about The Cremation of Sam MaGee.”
“This gentle raft down the Tsirku and Chilkat rivers proved a major highlight of our 10 day Alaskan adventure. We observed eagles hunting salmon, several nests containing fledgling bald eagles and gorgeous scenery. I definately recommend this as one of the first things to do if and when you go to Haines! Especially if you value the personal touch.”
“This was an amazing rafting experience ! We were in town (Haines) for only one day with no previous arrangements, headed to the Eagle sanctuary. With only a phone call we had an experienced, knowledgeable engaging tour guide, that listened to what we were interested in, and accommodated all our requests.”
