A high-speed catamaran to Haines, a rafting adventure in the Chilkat Bald Eagle Reserve, and a riverside picnic make this a wildlife tour of a lifetime. Your tour begins as you board a high-speed catamaran for a cruise along North America's longest and deepest fjord to Haines. Next, you'll board a motorcoach for a relaxing 40-minute drive up the Haines Highway to the preserve. You'll see historic Haines and Fort William H. Seward on this narrated drive, and look for moose and swans in the marshlands. Experienced guides await to begin your rafting adventure (not whitewater). You'll float silently down the river aboard 18' inflatable rafts - the best way to observe eagles drawn to feed on the plentiful salmon. Bears and wolves are also frequent guests at the feast. Not only rich in wildlife, the preserve is also a place of incredible beauty, with towering mountains, hanging glaciers and lush forests. A riverside picnic caps off your day.
