February 8 - March 16
Saturdays and Sundays:  9:00am, 11:30am and 2:00pm.
Thursdays:  10:00am and 1:00pm.

Come and enjoy winter and very early spring while experiencing the beauty and solitude of the lower Connecticut River. It is so different then it is in the summer months, no boats and with no leaves on the trees, our wildlife viewing is much easier.  Although our primary mission is to search for and observe migrating and resident Bald Eagles, we will also search for many other varieties of local winter wildlife.

A seasoned, experienced naturalist will talk about eagle biology and ecology and about the other wintering birds and wildlife that will be seen on our cruise.  We have a large screen TV on board where we will show a presentation of the wildlife that we may see on our journey.

RiverQuest has a fully enclosed heated cabin, enough to take the chill off, but, please dress warm because you will want to be outside for most of the journey observing our wintering wildlife up close.  There will be complimentary coffee and tea on-board.  If you do not have your own, there is also a limited supply binoculars on loan for the cruise.

Hope sailing is smooth and the eagles are out flying. My last winter cruise on the RiverQuest was fantastic!! Nothing more beautiful than the CT River. We are so fortunate to have you folks providing a front row seat to one of the great rivers in the world....
