Alaska is home to a large population of eagles, and the open-air observation deck on each of our vessels is the perfect spot to view this majestic bird.

Lighthouse Excursions Icon So Many Eagles So Little Time

It was a cool and rainy day for this tour which turned out to be perfect for finding eagles! We saw 38. The crew of the boat was very attentive to the needs of the passengers... If you take this trip, make sure to enjoy the hot chocolate and salmon spread with crackers.

Could not have asked for a better experience! Our deckhand, Andrew, was instrumental in making it so as my daughter was on crutches at the time. He went out of his way to ensure she had a wonderful experience despite her lack of mobility.

Lighthouse Excursions Icon Excellent Tour

The wildlife wasn't in captivity. They showed up on time ....... The area was stunning, the crew was knowledgeable, and we got a sea shanty that wasn't advertised. Excellent tour.

This is a world winning excursion... The captain and crew truly do have so much passion in their service... We received hot chocolate upon arrival, home made delicious salmon dip and crackers as a snack. We saw at least a dozen bald eagles and overall had an outstanding time. Thank you to Anthony, Marcus & Captain Kyle!
