Lake Coeur d’Alene Cruises offers eagle watching cruises on the lake in the winter season. Last year we saw well over 100 eagles in 2 hours! Every year, hundreds of American Bald Eagles visit Lake Coeur d’Alene on their annual migration. In December and January, these birds congregate at the lake’s northern end to feed on lake-bound salmon. For an up-close look, join us on the Lake Coeur d’Alene Cruise Boat to Wolf Lodge Bay. It’s an awe-inspiring sight to see these magnificent birds in the wild from the comfort of a warm cruise boat.
Lake Coeur d’Alene Cruises is proud to offer two-hour Eagle Watching Cruises. These cruises are often accompanied by naturalists, or alternatively include a DVD presentation about eagles. The experience makes an ideal educational adventure. Take a cruise on the lake to watch the eagles fly through peaceful inlets. The two-deck Lake Coeur d’Alene Cruise boats are climate-controlled and have picture windows, which help create a wonderful experience on the water. Lake Coeur d’Alene is known as the Playground of the Pacific Northwest for its scenic beauty, and the rail of a cruise boat is the best place to enjoy it.
