This winter, are you seeking for fun things to do with your family in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho? Don’t spend your time cooped up indoors watching television or movies. Instead, consider booking a Bald Eagle Cruise with CDA Cruises for the entire group. Not only does this adventure provide breathtaking views of the lake, but it also provides an opportunity for your family to get up close and personal with nature’s most beautiful bird – the bald eagle.
Continue reading below for more details on this great cruise choice!
The specifics are as follows:
Every year, hundreds of bald eagles congregate on the shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene’s northern edge. They travel from further north, such as Canada and Alaska, in search of milder temperatures for the upcoming winter season. Once they have arrived, they make their nest in the trees above the water and spend their days foraging for spawning Kokanee Salmon in the lake below them. Salmon seems to be one of their favorite dishes!
Unless otherwise specified, all Eagle Watching Tours will begin at the resort, where you will board the boat with friends, family, and other guests roughly 30 minutes before the scheduled sail time. Remember to bring your coats and gloves since it’s going to be frigid!
Then you’ll cross a body of water, make your way around Tubbs Hill, and out towards Wolf Lodge Bay on the lake’s northeastern shoreline. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled because eagles are known to swoop down on water and through the trees. For this cruise, we recommend that you bring binoculars with you because they will allow you to view more detail. Additionally, you are welcome to bring your cameras so that you can attempt to get some images or films of these amazing birds in action!
Interested in learning more? The pricing and availability of the Eagle Watching Tours are determined by whatever tour you choose. CDA Cruises now provides two Eagle Cruise options: bargain cruises and deluxe cruises. Both are available on the CDA Eagle. The specifics of these two cruise alternatives, including dates and pricing information based on age, can be found on the following page.
