This could have been a 5 star had the staff not been so grumpy. The live Bald Eagles here are the best close-ups you can get. There are other raptors here also, like owls and hawks. The bear display is the best I have ever...More
We took a raft trip down the Chilkat River in the Bald Eagle Preserve. The trip was set up through our cruise ship, so I am not sure which company we were with, but it was fantastic. We saw over 30 eagles that morning. Our...More
This is a wonderful way to experience all that nature has to offer! From the relaxing float ride down the river, to seeing eagles perched high in the trees, all in our party had an amazing time. I would highly recommend this adventure!
Three of us participated in the river float, lunch, and eagle sightings. I have been to Alaska four times and this was the highlight of my latest trip. The staff was very professional, enjoyable, and most informative. We would do this again if ever given...More
We saw eagles elsewhere, but not in the preserve area along the highway. But, we didn't expect to see them there since July is not the time of year for that. We can only imagine what it looks like when they are everywhere. Still, you...More
We had been there a few years ago and probably saw 100 eagles. Last week maybe dozen. Wildlife doesn’t always commit to being on the tour but the guides did well. Cody was our guide and you could tell he loved being there and made...More

As other have said it is a nice ride but you won’t see many eagles. We had a much better time doing an excursion through a 3rd party. We were in Skagway 2 days and took the ferry to Haines both days. Once to do this trip and once to do a trip to the Chilkoot river to see bears. The bear trip was a hundred times better and we saw eagles then as well. The river trip although comfortable was very cold. We were there in late August as well. The excursion was called wildlife safari and bear viewing. The salmon are running on the chilkoot in late August.
I am not aware of any hard bottom boat tours offered on this tour. Our rafts were 18ft long and almost new. You sit on the side of the raft as the tour guide paddles. There is no white water. It was a very comfortable ride... More
I am not aware of any hard bottom boat tours offered on this tour. Our rafts were 18ft long and almost new. You sit on the side of the raft as the tour guide paddles. There is no white water. It was a very comfortable ride for us in our 70s. Have fun!
