The Skagit River Bald Eagles Eco Tour takes you to experience the wilderness along the Skagit River during December & January. It is here that hundreds of migratory bald eagles congregate to feast on the winter salmon run!
As we stop along the Skagit River to watch, listen and learn about the regal bald eagles, you’ll find yourself surrounded by the snow covered mountains of the North Cascades, as well as the moss & lichen covered forest trees. The incessant glacial meltwater of our life sustaining Skagit River will serenade you all along. A visit to the Skagit Bald Eagle Interpretive Center is also included.
During the Skagit River Bald Eagles Eco Tour, you’ll also learn about the life cycle of salmon, the different species, and their importance in sustaining not only the bald eagles, but also bears, orcas, the PNW fisheries and ways of life. You’ll also understand the role our magnificent temperate rainforest plays in sheltering the entire Skagit River watershed system on which its wildlife, and humans, depend upon.
The Extended Tour option (2 hrs) includes a visit to a salmon hatchery and a 1-3 mi walk through an old-growth forest.
Warm clothing, gloves, hats, footwear, and rain gear are highly recommended during our crisp winter days.
