Raft down the gently flowing Chilkat River through a bald eagle preserve known for its virgin wilderness and abundant wildlife. To reach the launch site, you will travel along a stretch of road so beautiful that it has been designated a National Scenic Highway. You will then board an 18-foot raft with a naturalist guide and begin slowly floating down the river, which the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve borders. The waters are teeming with salmon that come to spawn, and their sheer numbers provide an endless supply of food for the eagles. You will have a front-row seat to observe this annual rite of nature, which ensures a healthy and abundant eagle population. The Chilkat Valley is home to as many as 400 bald eagles, and dozens of nests have been spotted in the preserve alone. You may also see bears feasting on salmon along the riverbank and enormous moose, some weighing up to 1,600 pounds.
