Beaver Lake ea­gle watch cruises

Hobbs State Park has of­fered ea­gle watch tours on Beaver Lake for nine years. Ev­ery cruise is dif­fer­ent. You never know what wildlife you will see.

Ac­cord­ing to Chris Pis­tole, new­est Hobbs State Park in­ter­preter, “It’s al­ways great to be out on the wa­ter and then to see the wildlife, too, adds spe­cial mean­ing to each cruise. We al­ways ex­pect to see bald ea­gles, but don’t for­get about the beau­ti­ful osprey, the al­ways hun­gry great blue herons, the red-tailed hawks, the ducks, the king­fish­ers, deer, tur­tles, and the list goes on. No one will ever be dis­ap­pointed on our ea­gle tours.”

Pis­tole added, “We only take 18 guests at a time, so it’s im­por­tant that folks call the park in a timely man­ner to en­sure that their names get on the board­ing lists.”
