Daytime Cruises on RiverQuest

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 safe. 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, Mount Saint John’s in Deep River and more.

We will also see local wildlife, including Bald Eagles, Osprey (April thru August) and lots more. Captain Mark and/or crew will tell you all about everything we see!

Pack a jacket, camera, binoculars and a snack if you’d like.

Please read below  “Additional Few Things” for more cruise details. Thank you!
