Winter Wildlife Eagle Cruises on the Connecticut River

February 10 - March 18

Winter Wildlife Eagle Cruises on the Connecticut River

RiverQuest has teamed up with the Connecticut River Museum for their annual winter Eagle cruises! With this partnership, you not only get to enjoy the river and its wildlife from the water, but also the entire museum and their special Eagles of Essex exhibit.

Winter Wildlife Eagle Cruise on RiverQuest departs from CT River Museum in Essex, Connecticut

Come out of your winter doldrums and experience the beauty and solitude of the lower Connecticut River during this wonderful time of year! It is so different than it is any other time of the year. There are no other vessels on the water, and with no leaves on the trees, our wildlife viewing is easy and fun.

As the river, lakes, and ponds to our north freeze, Eagles and others make their way to the lower CT River for their favorite food – FISH. Join us on this approximately 2 hour “on-the-water” cruise to search for eagles and other winter wildlife. We have naturalists on board to narrate and make sure you don’t miss a thing!

RiverQuest has a heated cabin, but we suggest that you dress in warm layers since the best views will be from the open decks. Don’t forget your camera and binoculars! …No binoculars? No worries, we have plenty on board for you to borrow! We will also provide complimentary coffee and tea.
