I was staying in Haines and saw that many excursions were being offered to cruise passengers, so I asked if I could join the float down the Chilkat River to see eagles in the Eagle preserve. When we arrived we were given rubber boots and life jackets and told how to safely enter the boat. Fortunately it was a beautiful day and there were many eagles flying or nesting or just sitting and looking at us as our boat flowed past. Nicole our guide displayed a lot of strength getting us off the gravel when we occasionally got grounded and we all had to bounce to help lift the rubber boat off the gravel. Nicole gave us some interesting information about the life and habits of eagles. Sadly we did not see any other wild life- they must have heard us coming- but I was happy just to see the eagles.
On reaching the end of our trip we were given sandwiches, hot drinks, cookies and oranges and driven back to the Dock at Haines. All the staff were friendly, personable and willing to help in any way they could. Highly recommended
