Experience the true wilderness that Alaska is famous for as you join the Hess family for a jet boat tour in the heart of the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve. The Hesses own 3.2 acres right in the middle of the preserve so they have all the amenities to keep you warm and comfortable with all the modern conveniences. Explore the remote areas of the preserve where the moose habitat is the best in the valley and moose sightings are frequent, although not a guarantee. Bald Eagles and their massive nests are visible from the river's edge and the eagles and moose are just as curious of you as you are of them. The Hesses have operated in this road-less portion of the preserve since 1991, so the animals and birds are used to the presence of the boats and unafraid. So come to Haines and visit the world famous Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve and enjoy visiting with the Hess family and their experienced, local river guides and staff. Listen to their stories of what it is like to live in this remote and rural community of Haines, Alaska. A meal is provided.
