Skagit Eagle Tour 3 Hour


This is the famous 'heated drift boat' eagle tour—a delightful way to observe the wilderness of nature on one of the most magnificent rivers on our continent, in the company of migrating and often feeding bald eagles. We use custom-made drift boats equipped with open-flame propane heaters to take the chill off.  Low impact and designed with our children, parents, and grandparents in mind. Our 3 Hour Eagle Tour begins in Rockport WA and is our most popular tour.

Skagit River Eagle Tours' 3 hour tour offers a quiet, serene float—a wonderful way to experience the beauty of the Skagit. Whether you're a nature lover or an amateur or professional photographer, this tour will leave you with a lasting impression of the Skagit and the migrating eagles that return every year. We meet at Howard Miller Steelhead Park, where we then transport you up the river by bus to Marblemount, WA. Upon arrival in Marblemount, we launch the boats, ignite the propane heaters, conduct a brief safety meeting, and embark on an 8-mile drift through the Bald Eagle sanctuary. Throughout the tour, our experienced guide will provide information about the eagles, salmon runs, and the intricate roles they play on this beautiful river.
