Kid-Approved Eagle Itinerary

Start your trip with a kid-approved Eagle Float Tour on one of Squamish's breathtaking rivers. Together you will float downstream hunting for eagles and other local wildlife such as herons, otters, elk and waterfowl. Cold weather gear is available free of charge, so you and your entire family from kids to grandparents can stay cozy on the water. Your tour also includes a warm meal and on-river hot chocolate.

Next, check-in at nearby Sunwolf Riverside Resort and enjoy a walk around the stunning property. On a clear day, there are unobstructed views of the Tantalus Range and eagles can often be seen roosting in the trees. If the kids are looking to burn off some energy head to The Ninja Gym, where kids ages 6+ and adults can challenge themselves on obstacles such as salmon ladders, an unstable bridge, a soft play area and more. Finish off the day with a cozy, comfort dinner at Howe Sound Brew Pub & Firebread restaurant. So many options for the entire family on the extensive menu including wood oven pizzas for the kiddos and local brews and homestyle stews for moms and dads. 

Local's tip: Eagle tours end around mid-February or when the eagles return to their breeding grounds in late winter. Book early to avoid disappointment!
