What makes Fraser River Safari so special?
First of all, this isn't just "any boat" - the safari boat is climate-controlled with large opening picture windows, creating an open boat feel while being comfortable in all types of weather. For bird viewing, the boat also acts as a blind allowing guests to get closer to the action than a regular boat kayak.
Second, the Fraser River Safari team prides themselves on excellent customer service. Their motto is quality over quantity - ensuring all photographers and participants have good sightlines and plenty of time for viewing. They can even arrange a complimentary tour of Kilby Historic Site (www.kilby.ca) and a delicious meal option for groups.
Third, the Fraser Valley is the over-wintering site for the largest gathering of bald eagles anywhere in the world. The heart of the event occurs along the Harrison River, a pristine and largely undeveloped estuary with a strong annual salmon run attracting historic numbers of these raptors.
Whether you're looking for a family activity, a day with the eagles, booking an office party or custom tour ... Fraser River Safari is there to help.For more information visit www.fraserriversafari.com.
