Bald eagles gather from as far as southern Alaska to gorge on spawning salmon on the Skagit River. This is the largest gathering of eagles in the continental United States. Go into the North Cascades to see this annual spectacle of the gathering of eagles.
On the way there you will pass the tragic, deadly Oso mudslide. Once arriving at Rockport you will stop at at least three different sites to view the feeding or perched eagles as well as touring through a salmon hatchery. The Skagit river is home to all 5 species of salmon and two species of trout--the only river in Washington that can say that. Guides will be on hand with telescopes to assist in eagle spotting.
Educational talks are scheduled and available for your education. Bundle up, bring your camera and binoculars, as well as appropriate clothes and a sense of adventure for this seasonal treat.
Pick up is 7:30am at the MoPOP Museum (formally known as the EMP) and will be leaving Marblemount at approx. 3pm to get back to Seattle by 5pm.
This 10 hour day includes morning snacks and a boxed lunch.
There are limited boat float trips available for extra cost. Customized Tours will make every effort to book at your advance request.
