Description


  • Round trip transportation from your Haines cruise ship terminal!
  • River float rafting excursion through Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve!
  • English speaking certified guide!
  • All safety instructions and river rafting equipment are provided!
  • Complimentary sack lunch!

Escape from the cruise crowds of Haines to the stunning scenery of the Chilkat Valley. Upon arrival in Haines, you will meet your professional expert river rafting and floating cruise excursion guide at the pier and enjoy a 45-minute drive on the Haines Highway as it follows along the river. The drive is incredibly scenic: on one side, you have glacier-clad mountains acting as skyscrapers, and splashes of colorful wildflowers line the road. On the other side are winding channels along the river that provide habitat for moose, bear and trumpeter swans. In 2009, the highway became a National Scenic Byway.

Arrive at the river in the heart of the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve. After suiting up in your rafting life jackets, your Haines shore excursion guide will give a brief safety talk before you board your 7 passenger raft (also called float) and leave civilization behind you. Within moments, you are immersed in the Alaskan wilderness, as you drift along on the silent river currents.

This is a scenic float trip (no whitewater) and you do not have to paddle. Sit back and be awestruck as you drift through the home of the largest bald eagle congregation in the world. Thousands of bald eagles travel here to feed on salmon in the fall and winter. In the summer months, a healthy resident population of bald eagles lives along the river. As your river float excursion guide nudges the raft along, they will explain the intricate balance of nature that makes this a unique and special place. Have your camera and binoculars within reach at all times. Keep an eye out for other wildlife besides eagles. Although wildlife sightings can never be guaranteed, it is not unusual to see moose, otters, brown and black bear, and even wolves, who call the preserve their home.

You will spend approximately one and one-half hours rafting / floating the river based on the current flow. After the rafting of your excursion, your guide will select a scenic spot to enjoy a complimentary picnic lunch on your way back to Haines. Have your cameras ready as the scenery on the way back to town is just as beautiful and although it is not guaranteed, there is always the possibility of seeing wildlife.

My friends and I took this tour on our cruise in September. We all had a really good time. Since the river was calm the activity was not strenuous at all. The scenery was awesome and we even spotted a few bald eagles on our way. All of the guides and staff were super.

Visiting the eagle preserve in Haines by raft has been one of the most gratifying experiences during any cruise excursions we've been on. The river takes you slowly and you can just sit back and admire the scenery. We brought some binoculars and a great camera to have a closer look at some of the eagle nests and they are enormous! Ashley was our guide and did such an outstanding job. We loved everything about this excursion and has been one of the most beautiful locations we've ever visited. The bald eagles are majestic and we also saw other wildlife the entire trip.
