NATIONAL EAGLE CENTER | On the River Eagle Cruises are Back

Don’t wait to book as many cruises are already sold out!

Similar to the Center’s popular In the Field eagle viewing field trips, these two-hour cruises serve as a floating classroom for guests, featuring an expert naturalist, real-time interpretation of observed Bald Eagles and wildlife, and audience-guided Q&A. These cruises offer a great way to view Bald Eagles during the summer months – from the water!
