My 15 year old son and I did the basic falconry lesson and it was great! It was extremely educational to learn about the sport of kings which is funny because the birds are treated like kings! We worked with a Harris hawk named "Cowboy" and he was absolutely amazing! We had a terrific time and I highly recommend you... More

The history was educational, and feeding the falcon was interactive. Gives you a new respect for birds of prey and their trainers.

We did the basic falconry lesson and it was worth every penny. We got to fly a hawk! There are also lots of other interesting birds of prey there that you can view.

The staff at the West Coast Falconry are friendly, confident and quite funny. They have a very easy way about them and provide a relaxed environment. My son and I handled the hawks. They are so beautiful and come right to your hand. We could have stayed for hours with these wonderful trainers and gorgeous birds. Highly recommended!

The one hour basic lesson was a wonderful experience but, honestly, too short. I could have stayed much longer and plan to go back again to do so. I learned so much in that one hour and left thinking there is so much more to know about this sport. Clearly the instructors have a passion for falconry, it shows in... More
