The Skagit River is a true Pacific Northwest wonder. Photo opportunities abound with emerald waters, dense green forests, snowcapped mountains in the distance, and abundant bald eagles and salmon. It is a short drive from Seattle and Vancouver and a great trip for those new to rafting who are looking for an authentic wilderness experience.
Rafters have their choice of the Goodell Creek section, which has gentle rolling rapids, and one exciting wave-filled S-turn. The river is dam controlled, so this option is offered throughout the summer. The second option meanders through the Skagit River Bald Eagle Natural Area, where bald eagles nest in the winter, dining on spawning salmon. This protected area is home to the largest gathering of these majestic birds in the Lower 48.
