For all 2020 Cruises:

  • If you or any members of your party are experiencing a fever, cough and/or shortness of breath we ask that you refrain from cruising with us.

  • You must wear a mask when you are walking around the boat. No exceptions.
  • Only individual food like sandwiches/light snacks will be allowed.
  • Only small coolers that can fit under your seat will be allowed.
  • Our seating will be setup to meet physical distancing requirements.
  • There is a very limited passenger capacity.
  • If colder weather is predicted, please bring a heavy jacket/blanket. You may be outside in the lovely breeze.

Come with us on the lower Connecticut River and experience an area that has been labeled by The Nature Conservancy as “One of the Last Great Places”.

Our cruises are comfortable, relaxing and affordable. This is a great cruise for family, relatives from out of town or just to come for river ride. Enjoy this beautiful, pristine river in our own backyard.

See Gillette Castle, one of Connecticut’s main tourist attractions from the water, the Chester/Hadlyme Ferry, the second oldest operating ferry in Connecticut and Mount Saint John’s School for Boys in Deep River. Captain Mark and/or crew will tell you all about the castle, William Gillette, the ferry and Mount Saint John’s.

You never know what we may find, so pack a jacket, camera and binoculars.
