NATURE is our business…

….and business is good!

2020 was a challenging season, but we were able to enjoy our Daytime and Tree Swallow Sunset Cruises on a limited basis. We plan on operating in 2021 with pretty much our standard calendar cruise offerings, except Winter Wildlife Cruises. There still may be capacity limitations in 2021, but as long as it is safe to go….we will! Our plan is to start in April with our Springtime Osprey/Eagle Cruises where we will see Bald Eagles, Ospreys and more. This Fall on our Tree Swallow and Daytime Cruises, we saw more Bald Eagles than we have seen in the past. This is great news for the rebounding population. Thanks to all who joined us and supported us during these crazy times. Cathy will put together a 2020 recap slideshow soon. All the best, the RiverQuest crew. Be safe, be well.

Cruising the Connecticut River
