The Eagles Have Landed Catch the awe-inspiring sight of the world’s largest number of bald eagles on record

SQUAMISH, BRITISH COLUMBIA, November 19, 2015 – Each year, hundreds of people make the journey to Squamish for a glimpse of the majestic bald eagle. Between December and January, Squamish plays host to the awe-inspiring sight of the largest congregation of wintering bald eagles. Sunwolf invites nature lovers to get up close and personal with these awe-inspiring raptors with an Eagle Viewing Float down the Cheakamus River. New this year, Sunwolf will be offering daily transportation to and from Whistler and Vancouver making for an easy and seamless experience.

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 10:30 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 $110 for adults and $75 for children under 12. Return transportation is available free from Whistler and an additional $25 from Vancouver. The prices include a $5 donation to the Squamish Eagle Watch Program.
