Private Bald Eagle Tours


Private Bald Eagle Tour

´╗┐Book the whole boat ... a 24-foot pontoon boat and experience majestic bald eagles closer than you may have ever seen them. This 2-hour tour is limited to six people and is one of the most unique bald eagle tours in the country.

Close to downtown Richmond, on the James River exists an ecosystem rich with wildlife and highlighted by the conservation success story of bald eagles. Forty years ago, there were no resident, breeding bald eagles on the James, and today there are over 230 pair. This tour takes you into the midst of five of those pair, as we travel through their territories sharing stories of their lives and general facts about bald eagles.

Enjoy this tour with your camera in hand or just enjoy the James' natural beauty. Let Capt. Mike's experience lead you to the resident bald eagles, often times up close for incredible photography and viewing opportunities.

Top image:  This bald eagle is one of Jefferson Reach's finest bald eagles and her name is Bandit, who has an incredible story.  Briefly ... she was born in 2005. Her journey began in Birmingham, AL with a quick stop in Pigeon Forge, TN and ultimately choosing the James River in Richmond, VA as her permanent home in 2009, just after she became an adult.  As of January 2015, Bandit had been fighting another female eagle for over three years protecting her territory and finally, in the late winter and spring of 2015, Bandit and her third mate, Trey, were able to have a sucessful breeding season. Bandit's first successful breeding season in six tries (six years). Their offspring's name was Dolly ... to find out why she was named Dolly, click here.
