Kawanti Adventures

Since 2004 the Sitka-based Alaska Raptor Center has partnered with Kawanti Adventures and The Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary, a 40-acre reserve, just 10 miles from downtown Ketchikan and the cruise-ship ports. New this summer, Kawanti Adventures is offering a raptor flight experience presented in their custom-built, 1,500 square foot flight auditorium.

Alaska Raptor Center staff host this live demonstration and provides detailed information about the specialized physical and behavioral adaptations raptors share. In addition to the Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary’s trails, bear viewing boardwalks, historic sawmill, totem park and retail center, the new tour features a raptor courtyard. The courtyard boasts magnificent enclosures to provide up-close viewing opportunities of a variety of raptor species, including the majestic bald eagle. With no nets or screens between the birds and guests, there is a unique opportunity for professional and amateur photographers to get the best possible shots of these awe-inspiring creatures.

A portion of the proceeds go to the Alaska Raptor Center, a 501(C)3 non-profit organization, for the rehabilitation of wild birds, education, and research.
