Nature is our business…
….and business is good!
On the River: Now onto SPRING!! Welcome! We saw our first TWO Osprey’s on the morning Winter Cruise on March 16. Very exciting. We think they (or at least one) belongs to Marker 35 nest in Deep River. Our cruises will now be departing from our home berth at Eagle Landing State Park in HADDAM, April 19 though October. Nice to be home, although we did have a wonderful time this Winter with the Connecticut River Museum. On our SPRING Osprey/Eagle Cruises, starting April 19 from Haddam, we will go by three Bald Eagle nesting territories, on two of the nests (Twelve Mile Island and Hamburg Cove), egg(s) are being incubated. The Goodspeed nest looks like, no egg. Too much drama with three mature Bald Eagles in the area. We will still be searching for some of our winter visitors, there may still be some ducks and hawks who have not headed north yet AND seals!!! And, we will definitely see our Osprey home from their southern wintering grounds. So, don’t feel you have been left out, still lots to see on this beautiful Connecticut River before the leaves come out and summer starts.
Other stuff: RiverQuest will be pulled out of the water for more “spiffing” up March 20-ish. We will be installing a new steering system, new flooring, some painting and more. She will also be having her five-year complete hull inspection by the United States Coast Guard in early April. A lot of work to be done! She will be back in the water April 17-ish for the start of our Osprey/Eagle Cruises. We will be looking forward to cruising the river again! Adventure is on the hard at Chester Point Marina. Cathy has most of the 2019 Special and Regular Cruises on the calendar, available for booking. We always like to offer new Special Cruises. If you have any ideas, please email us.
