What a great find! I was a little early for the mass eagle watching (November), but thoroughly enjoyed my experience of walking along the paths, and watching seals swimming up stream catching salmon! I also watched a couple of native Indians catching salmon. Walking, wildlife, gorgeous scenery, a local pub...I enjoyed this so much, that I returned several times throughout... More

As I was watching a bald eagle tear apart a salmon carcass, I thought I saw a log emerge, disappear, re-emerge...and it turned out to be a harbor seal...catching fish up the Squamish River...it was cool to watch.

The place to be in the fall to see Bald eagles. Nice walking area and sitting places. The scenery is so nice.

This was awesome despite the rain. Didn't see any eagles though. Wrong seasonal time to visit. It was awesome though.

Must come and see. Will be back in winter to see the Eagles feeding off salmon. Nice walk. Peaceful. Beautiful benches and views. Learn about eagles.

We always stop here on the way up or down from Whistler when we have guests. If you time it right (especially in the fall) you are treated to the sight of dozens of eagles- perched, eating, diving.

This is the Eagle Capital of Canada. When we visited in November we saw tons of eagles. When we were there in the summer there were no eagles. So, depending on when you are travelling, Brackendale is a worthwhile visit. As we understand it, the Eagles are most often there from November to April. They head to Alaska during the... More

This is the place to go if you want to see eagles. Hundreds flock to the river every fall to fill up on the salmon. Worth a visit but do a bit of research as to the best time to view the most eagles.

Here is where all the bald eagles come in late fall to winter on the coast to feed on salmon . Watch as they catch one and have it for their dinner. Bears too may join in on the feast. Here is where many tourists and bird watchers come for the annual count.

Two weeks prior to our visit the heavy rains and flooding washed all the salmon downstream so there were very few eagles to be found. This was not publicized so we were quite disappointed to only see a total of 10 eagles, mostly singles here and there, when there are usually hundreds. Do your homework before you go.
