River Updates 

 

  

 

Tree Swallow cruises have been alot of fun. Thus far this year they have very low and close, different every year, every night! We are still seeing the "Brockway Island" Bald Eagle most times and other eagles, too. A total of fifteen on one cruise. At least one every cruise. LOTS of Great Blue Herons and Egrets, also. Ospreys are basically gone, just a few here and there. The ones we are seeing now are probably from the north on their migration south. If you are looking to book a Tree Swallow Cruise, just try the date you want to come using our on-line reservations. If it says sold out at the booking page, it is. We may be adding a few more evenings, some of our charters have not fully confirmed. yet. Send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will add you to a waiting list.
