    For generations Tlingit villages have maintained a tradition of welcoming visitors in regal style.

    A uniquely Alaskan experience with exclusive intimate access to bald eagles and raptors, and a rainforest walk. Experience Alaska's newest and most intimate raptor presentation and exhibit. Take a guided nature walk exploring the wildlife and ecology of the preserve, and explore a historic sawmill, blacksmith, and totem park.

You'll be greeted by a naturalist guide who will lead you on an informative half-mile nature walk surrounded by towering spruce, hemlock and cedar trees. During the spawning season, bears and seals feed on salmon in Eagle Creek and Bald Eagles and other birds wait for scraps in the estuary. Seasonal ecosystem changes result in varying levels of wildlife activity. Your walk leads into a 1,500-sq. foot flight auditorium.


    During a 30-minute narrated presentation, a handler from the Alaska Raptor Center will describe the unique physical and behavioral adaptations of the birds while showcasing their natural behaviors. The exhibit is designed so you'll be able to see these birds flying very close by, and the grand finale will take your breath away, as the Bald Eagle is presented. Thanks to the tireless efforts by organizations like the Alaska Raptor Center, this regal bird is no longer endangered.


    Your tour also includes access to the custom-built raptor courtyard where you'll have time to ask the handler more questions and photograph these amazing birds of prey close up. You'll have time to yourself before returning to town, so you can explore the historic Herring Bay Lumber Company Sawmill, and the totem park with its impressive 40-foot totem. Watch a blacksmith at work and shop for souvenirs in the General Store.
