5:00 Tree Swallow Sunset Cruise on ADVENTURE
October 4, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm$50
We will cruise to a special area on the Connecticut River where 100’s of thousands of Tree Swallows gather. The swallows show up close to sunset and perform aerial ballets forming an amazing display of art, coordination and cooperation and eventually fly into the reeds to sleep for the night! We will get perfect views from ADVENTURE’s open decks. Come enjoy the entire evening with us! We will spend over three and a half hours on the water where there is so much to see. Many birds are migrating through the area now; last year we saw a record number of Bald Eagles and Great Egrets. Our on board Naturalist, will educate you on the swallow phenomenon and all else we will see. On the return cruise home, there is time to chat with others and experience the river at twilight, blending into a possible starry night. We will provide a light cheese platter and you may provide your own picnic basket and favorite “beverage” to enjoy on this special cruise. Don’t forget your camera and a pair of binoculars (or borrow one of ours)!
