What's included

  • For $35 per person (reg. $70), go to the Basic Falconry Lesson I class, where you'll get 60 minutes of instruction and history on falconry, including learning how to "cast," which entails holding a hawk, casting it from your glove and calling it back again
  • For $29 per person (reg. $60), attend an Owl Encounter, where for an hour you'll get up close to Cailleach, a Eurasian Eagle Owl -- the largest species of owl on the planet -- then watch the trainers take her through exercises and get a photo taken

The fine print

Update: Due to weather, falconry classes are available only at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. until October. Phone reservations are required; subject to availability; the venue is closed Wednesdays and Thursdays and open by appointment Friday-Monday. Weekends book very quickly so please try to make a reservation well in advance of your desired date. A 48-hour cancellation policy applies. Must be at least 7 years old to participate in the Basic Falconry I class. Observer or non-participant fee is half the cost of the promotional fee for the Basic Falconry I class.

It was a great experience. We learned so many interesting facts about the falcons and owls. The birds were gorgeous. The people who run West Coast were very friendly and clearly enjoy what they do for a living. They made us feel very welcome.
