We are deep into SUMMER! And what an interesting summer is has been, we won’t call it easy. Who would known we would have torrential rains in July to the point the Connecticut River has flooded, causing cancellations we normally would only experience in the early Spring. Crazy! For the cruises we have made it out on, we have had a fun time seeing our beautiful river, it’s wildlife and scenery, Bald Eagles and Osprey and their chicks. The eagle chicks are well into their adolescence, flying and learning from Mom and Dad; the Osprey chicks are have flown or are just about to. In the over two weeks of their “chickhood” we have missed, they have grown huge! The NEW Bald Eagle’s nest being built in East Haddam is getting a little bigger. Come aboard, relax, learn and see what we can find. We are offering Sunset, Daytime and Special Cruises on both RiverQuest and Adventure. AND, also Private Charters on our vessel ADVENTURE! Come aboard! All the best, the RiverQuest and ADVENTURE crew. Be safe, be well.

Covid NOTE: At this point, RiverQuest is running about 2/3 capacity on her cruises, our choice, so there is plenty of comfortable room for all. We also follow the latest guidelines from the CDC, USCG and State of CT. RiverQuest crew members have all been vaccinated. Passenger safety is our number one concern.   

Cruising the Connecticut River

We are on the water February – October and the river is constantly changing with the seasons.
