Adventurers board inflatable Zodiac rafts to explore the Skagit River, taking either a scenic float or a whitewater excursion. As the guide describes the history and ecology of the wildlife-rich area, passengers take in the sights and snap photos. Once back on dry land, the group stops by one of three wineries for a wine tasting and light snacks. Trips run from May though October 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.
