Winter Wildlife Eagle Cruises departing from the Connecticut River Museum in Essex. Cruises are on the calendar and available for booking, now through March 17.
On the River (02-19-19): We got out on the river last Sunday, 02-10 and this past weekend, 02-15 and 02-16. We had a great time on all cruises. Bald Eagles seen, 10 to 24 depending on the cruise. Some great views. On the 9:00am cruise on 02-10, we had ten eagles hanging out in North Cove, Essex. Very cool! There must have been dead fish stuck in the ice for an eagle smorgasbord. As usual, it felt good to get out on our beautiful Connecticut River! Seasonal temperatures, a little bit of SUN. We also saw a Northern Harrier, Red Tailed Hawk and Great Cormorants, Common Mergansers and Goldeneye. All of us had a great time! Virtually no more ice on the river, the Coast Guard did a great job clearing it out. Still a little here and there to remind us it is still winter. We also saw the “shipwreck”, the sunken sailboat in Hamburg Cove. Thus far this winter season, seen on the river: Common, Red Breasted and Hooded Mergansers, Common Goldeneye, Bufflehead, Ruddy Duck, Juvenile Red Throated Grebe, Northern Harrier, Red Tailed and Red Shouldered Hawks and many Bald Eagles.
Other stuff: Note that this year we have added a winter cruise on Wednesdays at 2:00pm and we are running two cruises on Friday, 10:00am and 12:30pm. We are very happy on how th bow of RiverQuest came out. We can fit a few more people on the bow now and in the summer, one more table for our Sunset Cruises. There is still some more work to be done on RiverQuest when the weather gets warmer. Adventure is on the hard at Chester Point Marina. Cathy has most of the 2019 Special and Regular Cruises on the calendar, available for booking. We always like to offer new Special Cruises. If you have any ideas, please email us.
