2021 RiverQuest Connecticut River Expeditions Cruises
April 1 - October 24
Want to get out on the water in early Spring? Please join RiverQuest to search for two large birds of prey, Osprey and Bald Eagles, and lots of other wildlife that live and nest along the Connecticut River.
This leisurely 2.5 hour journey will pass by several Bald Eagle territories. Eagles will be nesting now so the search is on to find the nest.
Most Osprey have returned from their wintering grounds and they will either be very busy with their “nestorations” or already nesting! The cruise will get close up views of Osprey and their nests. Bring your camera!
You’ll also learn about the local wildlife we will see along with lots of other interesting stuff! Enjoy this beautiful river!
Departure from Eagle Landing State Park in Haddam.
Spring Osprey/Eagle Cruises during April are now available for booking!
