At Howard Miller Steelhead Park, adventurers aged 6 or older board inflatable rafts for about three hours of peaceful bird watching. As the guide describes the history and ecology of the habitat that between 20 and 200 bald eagles call home each year, passengers point their cameras at the majestic creatures and at Mount Baker rising in the distance. At the end of the 8-mile route, a shuttle drives passengers back up to the departure point. Life jackets, lunch, and rain ponchos (if necessary) are available. Passengers are advised to dress warmly. Trips run from November through the first week of March at 10 a.m. each day; reservations are required.
Pacific NW Float Trips
Dave Button grew up along Washington's Skagit River and had the inspiration to found his own company while navigating the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon under the helm of famed guide Georgie White. Soon after, Dave returned home to create Pacific NW Float Trips in 1974. Today, Dave and his crew of trained, passionate guides share their knowledge of the region's landscapes and hottest nightclubs for 20-something salmon via inspirational tours held year-round on the Skagit, Nooksack, and Wenatchee Rivers. Having scored the No. 5 spot on Sunset magazine's Top 10 Rafting Trips, Pacific NW's famed Bald Eagle Raft Adventure grants tourists a chance to take in the serenity of rustling cottonwoods and the majesty of Mount Baker as their guides quietly point out migratory eagles from Canada and Alaska.
