The Squamish Eagle Viewing Float is a fun experience to enjoy as a way to get away from the city for a day.
There’s a very scenic drive to get to Squamish on the Sea-to-Sky highway. Located about an hour’s drive north from the City of Vancouver, British Columbia, Squamish is a hub for those who love to get outside and be active year-round. While there are plenty of hiking trails nearby, I recently went to Squamish to go eagle watching.
The Squamish Rafting Company runs these eagle viewing raft trips from October through April, with the fall months bringing the largest gathering of bald eagles in the world.
While you can certainly do some eagle watching from the shoreline, I found that getting out on the water in a raft was a really relaxing way to spend the morning. I got some great photos and was able to have an adventure close to home.
This family-friendly adventure is a must for anyone interested in nature photography, bird watching or a relaxing way to spend some time outside. It’s an activity that the whole family can enjoy together, as there are no skills required (and no rowing involved.)
After the Squamish Eagle Viewing Float tour is over, we headed back to the tent to warm up and enjoy some delicious vegan chili made by a local chef.
Going on a day trip to Squamish from Vancouver for eagle watching was a great way to relax, have a soft adventure, and practice my photography skills.
