Though their impressive wingspans and snowy crowns are certainly distinctive, bald eagles are perhaps best known for photobombing the photo shoot that produced the Great Seal of the United States. Insinuate an eagle into the background of your life with today’s Groupon to Soaring Eagles Adventures in Augusta, West Virginia. Choose between the following options:

  • For $30, you get a one-day eagle-watching-and-canoeing excursion (a $60 value).
  • For $79, you get a two-day eagle-watching-and-canoeing excursion with overnight camping supplies and meals (a $175 value).<p>

Soaring Eagles Adventures outfits adventurers with the equipment necessary for eagle-watching-and-canoeing excursions. One-day trips send travelers on a three- to four-hour outing down a stretch of the Potomac River known as a prime hangout for flocks of regal eagles. As canoes glide silently through the water, travelers gaze out across land unspoiled by roads, skyscrapers, or neighbors singing loudly in the shower. Two-day excursions send adventurers on an overnight trip, with guides providing all camping accouterments and meals along the way. On the first day, travelers steer their crafts through eagle-laden territories, whereas the second day sends canoes down a stretch of river lined with scenic farmland, rolling hills, and oversized Bob Ross canvases. Each excursion includes basic canoeing instruction, filling novice noggins with the know-how to handle the Class I and II rapids they will encounter along the way.

Soaring Eagles Adventures

Craig and Cammie Cole, the husband-and-wife team behind Soaring Eagles Adventures, believe that life was not meant to be lived within cubical walls. Even though they’ve been sharing the wonders of the wilderness for nine years, the sight of a bald eagle's massive wings as it soars gracefully overhead has never lost an ounce of splendor. To them, each canoe excursion they lead is a much-needed break from the stressors of the modern world, so their trips venture into river valleys devoid of human interference, where bald eagles carry on their lives as they’ve done ever since Bigfoot stopped supplying them with toupees. The pair leads guests on half-day, full-day, and overnight camping trips, and share tips for surviving the wilderness and even marriage through podcasts and regular seminars.

Customer Reviews

Although, we didn't get to see an email that day, we had a great time. Would do it again definitely.

Am interested in going back next year and bringing others. Very enjoyable trip!
Kim K. · September 10, 2012
Had a great time. Very well organized. Craig gave us a thorough briefing about the rougher spots on the river and areas to keep an eye on. Made sure that everyone was comfortable with the equipment prior to setting off and he kept an eye on everyone throughout the trip. The equipment was clean and very well maintained. As promised we did see eagles (5 including a juvenile), deer, herons, turtles, lots of fish and as a special treat 5 delightful river otters. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a relaxing day on the South Branch of the Potomac.
