NATURE is our business…

….and business is good!

The latest on the river: On our Sunset Cruises and Private Charters, we have had great views of both Ospreys and our local resident Bald Eagles. Ospreys: Many of our Osprey have finished their nests and are sitting on egg(s). Some are still diligently working on their nest, which they better finish fast, it is getting late in the season. The East Haddam Swing Bridge Osprey nest is active and it looks like there may be chick(s)! Both parents have been at the nest looking busy. Bald Eagles: For the nests that we have seen on our journeys, chick(s) are visible and they are getting quite large. It appears that Clarkhurst (Haddam) nest has two, Goodspeed (East Haddam) has one, Deep River has two and Hamburg Cove has at least one. There is also a NEW Bald Eagle’s nest being built in East Haddam, just south of the Goodspeed nest. We have been seeing each cruise. We will be in full swing in a couple of weeks, in the meantime, we will be running a few special cruises and some Sunset and Daytime Cruises. Come aboard! All the best, the RiverQuest crew. Be safe, be well.
