Our annual Spring Bald Eagle Spotting Cruise will be held on Saturday, May 7, 2016. We will depart from Tim’s Rivershore restaurant in Dumfries, Virginia, at 8am for a more than two-hour wildlife spotting tour along the Potomac River. Patrons will likely see bald eagles, ospreys, great blue herons, and a wide range of other wildlife at home in their natural habitats.

Cruise services are provided by Rivershore Charters, a licensed charter company with a long history of providing safe and relaxing voyages throughout the Potomac River region. Captain Mark Perry often points out areas of historical significance along our route.

In addition to having a great time and experiencing our area’s wildlife from one of the best possible vantage points, your cruise fee will help our organization’s mission to educate the public on bald eagle issues in our area and protect their vital habitats.

Coffee and doughnuts are included (while they last); Rivershore Charters will offer bar service and hot foods for an additional cost while underway. After the cruise, feel free to grab a table at Tim’s Rivershore to enjoy a scenic meal on the water; bald eagles will often fly very close while you’re dining at Tim’s.
