River Updates




Happy New Year! Where we will start an exciting 2017! Now that we are past the Winter Solstice,  we are actually gaining daylight! We have not had a chance to make it out on the river by boat, however, we still check it in Haddam daily. Our winter ducks are showing up. We have seen Common Mergansers, Bufflehead, Hooded Mergansers and a grebe. A little bit of ice has formed on the edges of the river. The bare, leafless trees look beautiful and the river is extremely quiet and peaceful. Looking forward to 2017!! Looks to be an interesting year.......

Our next cruises for the public will be Winter Wildlife Eagle Cruises starting February 4th and we will be partnering with and departing from the Connecticut River Museum in ESSEX for February and March. RiverQuest will be back to her home berth in Haddam April through October.
