Interesting center and close up views of Eagles, Owls, Hawks etc. Their efforts on the part of our National bird and other raptors is admirable. It is worth a visit while in Sitka. Staff is friendly and informative. The back trail is very scenic.

This was a tour selection on our Alaskan cruise. We enjoyed the tour, but thought that the tour speaker, although enthusiastic about her topic, was hard to understand. We would have enjoyed the program more with another speaker.

WOW! Seeing the eagles, owls, hawks and other raptors up close and personal. Learning about rehabilitation and more. Listening to the docents and being about to walk around the habitats outside and inside was incredible. Enjoyed our tour here a lot.

Knowledgeable volunteers (an impressive high school senior was our guide), an unhurried, up close look at eagles, owls, raven and an attractive facility with a great gift shop.

Excellent narration in a room from an eagle handler. It was an eagle, but not a bald eagle. They rescue injured birds of many types. You see them in very large enclosure of their environment. Good appreciation at end of tour of these amazing creatures...More

Yes HAL runs a tour to the Raptor Centre. Don't know if the bus will accommodate you. We walked up to the centre but would not advise you to do that
