We had a fabulous trip here and saw many bald eagles and their nests. The area is serene - no cars, planes, etc for most of the trip. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet among the wildlife.

We toured the preserve with a guide service on 8 person floats. There was an incredible concentration of eagles in the 7-8 stretch of river that we floated. Other animals are possible but we didn't see them this trip. The views would be incredible but it was very cloudy on our trip.

The river is fast flowing but shallow. No rapids. In fact the bed changes often so it's not uncommon to beach a bit on silt and rocks.

We travelled to Haines last November specifically to see eagles and yes we saw 200-300 every day!! There are great uncrowded pull offs without disturbing eagles. The only negative was the river wasn't frozen and eagles were very spread out. We were told by another photographer who lives there that the back part of the river freezes some later in the year which brings the eagles closer where the river remains unfrozen. Never heard or read that anywhere but many eagles were 1/2 -3/4 mile away in furthest part of the river. Still a fantastic place to see eagles everywhere.

We saw one eagle on the way to the river. None on the river. It was early in the season so don't go if you will be disappointed in not seeing eagles.
We enjoyed the indian village and appreciated how hard they are working to preserve their heritage and the last of their land. They have the beginnings of a very nice museum so we were glad we could support them in some way.
The raft ride was fun and scenic even though we saw no birds.

Haines is a lovely town as yet unspoilt by the cruise ship influx, which is needed for the local economy. We loved our stay there. Lots to see and do and a feeling of calm.
