Are eagles seen in late July? What else could you see on this trip at that time of year?

There will be some eagles in the area in July but the massive gathering of 4000+ is in late fall. Seeing the eagles from the water on a boat makes some sense but I have seen large numbers of eagles from pullouts along the highway.

I can't vouch for eagles, late July because I don't know what their habits are but we saw many mid-June. Our guide, who was great by the way, told us he saw a bear and her cub along the shore the day before. We enjoyed our float down the Chilkat. They provided all the gear, boots, life vests. rain ponchos (which we didn't need) and a nice lunch after the trip.

We saw Eagles on June , I believe there are more when the salmon run later in the year, but I believe you will see some on July

As you know Eagles mate for life and the pairs normally return to the same nest so the guides on this trip know where to look. II think you would certainly see them in July but although we went in

May I understand that later in the year is better when the salmon are running and the birds are feeding off them. Certainly do this trip in the rafts. The guys were full of enthusiasm and very knowledgeable. My advice would be to

contact them on their website and get advice. But July should be no problem with seeing the birds.

The drive from Haines up Haines Hwy into Canada is nice. There is a pass and for the life of me I can't remember the name which have beautiful views back to the south east. Eat at the 33 Mile Roadhouse. We did not do the Kroschel Films Wildlife Center which in hindsight, I wish we would have.

There are nesting eagles in the area year round. However, nothing like in the early winter when there are salmon in the area. The best way to see the eagles is from the water on a boat trip. Reason being their food source comes from the water, so they aren't going to be perched facing the highway. But you are only going to see a few at best..
