Where the eagles soar

SQUAMISH, BRITISH COLUMBIA, December 12, 2014 – Tucked in a town between Vancouver and Whistler lies one of nature’s most impressive spectacles; the largest gathering of bald eagles in North America. From now through mid-February, Sunwolf invites guests to get up close and personal with these awe-inspiring raptors. Whether it’s the Eagle Viewing Float, the Mountain to River package that combines the Eagle Viewing Float with the new Sea to Sky Gondola, or the Soar and Stay promotion offering a 15% discount on accommodation, the birds are only here for a short time so book now while you can.

Brackendale earned bragging rights as the site of the largest concentration of bald eagles on the planet back in 1994 when an awe-inspiring 3769 of the magnificent raptors were counted in a single day. While gently floating by, Sunwolf’s experienced and knowledgeable guides educate guests about the life cycle of the bald eagle and the salmon they depend upon. A wonderful and educational trip for the entire family, the Eagle Viewing Float has attracted people far and wide interested in wildlife viewing, bird watching, and photography.

Eagle Viewing Float:

The Eagle Viewing Float departs daily from Sunwolf at 10:00 am where guests are first welcomed with coffee, tea, hot chocolate and freshly baked goods upon arrival. Shortly after, guests are escorted to Cheakamus River for a breathtaking one-hour float down the river where you will see first hand the incredible interconnectedness of nature. Eagle Viewing Floats finish up at Sunwolf’s cozy riverside lodge, where you will warm up with a hearty bowl of steaming stew while sitting beside the fire. The Eagle Viewing Float is priced at $100 for adults and $65 for children.

Soar with the Eagles:

Partnering with Squamish’s spectacular new Sea to Sky Gondola, combine the Eagle Viewing Float with a gondola ride up 885 metres about sea level. Offering sweeping views of the Howe Sound fjordm, Shannon Falls and Squamish Chief, the gondola takes guests to the summit where winter activities abound including, snowshoeing trails and tours, winter walking, a remarkable suspension bridge and a tube park. Top off the day at the Summit Lodge for a little après-adventure food and drinks. The Soar with the Eagles savings package is priced at $70 for children and $115 for adults.

Soar and Stay:

For those who want to extend their stay in nature, combine the Eagle Viewing Float with accommodation in one of Sunwolf’s Riverside Cabins. Set along the Cheakamus River, meander through woodland trails listening to the birds chattering, gaze at spectacular views of Mount Alpha from Sunwolf’s hot tub, or curl up in your cozy riverside cabin listening to the sound of the Cheekye flowing by. Each of the ten private cabins feature hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, gas fireplaces, handmade pine furniture and en-suite shower rooms. The Soar and Stay promotion offers guests a 15% discount on accommodation when booked with an Eagle Viewing Float.
