While looking for excursions to do during out Alaskan cruise, my family and I were looking for an activity that would be exciting for the teens and grandparents in our party to do together. This eagle float tour did not disappoint! Our tour guide was Steve, he made our trip

Thanks for this great and extensive review. Steve has tons of experience here on the Chilkat River and we enjoy having him on the team. I appreciate that you mentioned our staff because we really do stress teamwork with Rainbow Glacier Adventures. Preston is a real asset to our team and our drivers like to show you around Haines and give you an insider's perspective. We hope you come back some day to visit....maybe November for a stay in our Swan View cabin to experience the largest gathering of bald eagles in the world?!!!!!

We had an excellent tour with multiple sightings of Bald Eagles and their nests. Special thanks to Preston Anderson for rafting and Barb & Jen for driving us to the river. Preston did a wonderful job.

Thanks for the kind review of our rafting trip. Preston is a great river guide and Barb and Jen make the drive to the river enjoyable as well. There are lots of active bald eagle's nest along the section of river we float, and I'm glad you were able to see them in their natural habitat. The Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve is a true gem, and, traveling by raft, you get away from the road and are immersed in the wilderness.

Thanks for your positive review. Yes the trip is safe for the reasonably fit. You do not need to paddle (like on our kayak trips) but you are out in the weather for 1.5 hours and there is no backrest. If you are up for it, the Raft trip provides an opportunity to access some wild country and see bald eagles in their natural habitat.

We met our contact at the ship/cruise pier. Walked about a block to the outfitter shed to get water boots. Departed by bus up to the launch point on the Chilkat River. Sighted several eagles at first. Even four that were "sharing" a fish. After a little while though, only a
