Add To Plan

Experience Alaska's pristine natural beauty in a unique new way during this round-trip fjord cruise, and a peaceful float (no white water) through the world-famous Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve.

Depart the pier for the 30-minute ferry ride to Haines. You will take in spectacular views and photo opportunities while cruising along North America's longest and deepest fjord.

Next, you will board a bus for a drive through historic Haines and into the heart of the Valley of the Eagles. Upon arrival at the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, you will take a peaceful rafting trip down-river: the best way to see the preserve.

A place of incredible beauty, the preserve is highlighted by towering mountains, hanging glaciers, lush forests and the eagles that feed on the plentiful salmon struggling to swim up the shallow river. Perched along the river's edge or soaring just overhead, they will provide outstanding photographic opportunities. The preserve boasts the world's largest gathering of bald eagles, and is also home to moose, bears, wolves and many other animals.

Your floating adventure will continue on to the picturesque riverside village of Klukwan, the center of Tlingit culture for centuries. Throughout this adventure, your guides will be on hand throughout the tour to impart their extensive knowledge of this unique ecosystem and the area's rich native history. Life jackets, rubber boots and rain ponchos will be provided.

At the conclusion of your float, you will be served a deli-style lunch and hot drinks on the riverside before being transferred back to the pier.

Please note: This tour is recommended for guests in good physical condition. Guests with back and/or neck problems, guests with limited mobility and guests who utilize a wheelchair will not be permitted on this tour. The raft trip has no whitewater. The minimum age to participate on this tour is seven years old. Wear a warm jacket and hiking shoes, and bring a hat, gloves, an extra pair of socks, insect repellent, and your camera from the ship.
