Skagit River Eagle Tours

Welcome to Skagit River Eagle Tours, operated by Triad River Tours.

Trip Options

We offer a few different trips for both nature lovers and photographers. All of our boats are heated with Mr. Heater brand propane heaters throughout to keep you (relatively) cozy while you gaze out looking for birds.
  • Drift Boat Eagle Tours on the Skagit are our most popular tours. This is a quiet and serene float that offers a great way to experience the beauty of the Skagit. Whether you're a nature lover, an amateur photographer, or a professional photographer - this tour promises to leave you with a lasting impression of the Skagit and the annual return of migrating eagles. Click here for more information
  • Jet Sled Photography tours are designed specifically for those of you looking to get that perfect shot. These trips are very specific; we utilize a special powered jet sled that draws little water so that it can reach into the tight spaces. This powered jet boat has a flat floor to provide a platform for photographers to seek out that perfect shot. Click here for more information
  • Nooksack Tours are more hands on than our Skagit river tours. The Nooksack is a small river with many different channels and is constantly changing, depending on river levels you may have to get out of the raft and walk across gravel bars for a ways while your guide walks the boat around unsafe log jams and shallow sections of the river. Climbing on and off the raft can be a challenge for some people that are less mobile. This type of trip offers a scenic and fun adventure.  Click here for more information
