A seasoned river guide ferries up to six inflatable rafts on a calm ride down the Skagit Estuary and into the Swinomish Channel, taking the opportunity to point out wildlife such as blue herons, bald eagles, and self-conscious bald eagles wearing toupees. At Goat Island, the leader directs guests to file ashore, refuel with a picnic, and explore the island’s abandoned World War II–era fort and cistern that serves as a rest stop for migratory birds. Tours continue down the channel into the historic town of La Conner, where guests disembark and take in the town sites or continue on to west Mount Vernon to gaze at the blossoms of tulip fields. Patrons can peruse the FAQ section for more tour information.<p>
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 pioneer the routes and share their knowledge of the region's landscapes and salmon population via inspirational tours held year-round on the Skagit, Nooksack, and Wenatchee Rivers. 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.
