February and March:

Winter Wonderland/Eagle Cruises.

We will take a peaceful 2.5 hour on-the-water cruise on the river in search of eagles, ducks, hawks and who knows what else!! Come aboard the quiet, intimate, friendly RiverQuest boat! Bring a snack and your favorite beverage if you'd like. Such a unique time to be on the river. Booking available now!

Also, Osprey/Eagle Cruises for April. For a little warmer weather (maybe, this year has been good thus far!), join us on this 2.5 hour on-the-water cruise. Although most of our visiting eagles have left the area, we do still have our residents in the area (we will go by three Bald Eagle nests) and our Osprey's will have returned from their southern wintering grounds! 


Actively booking Group Tours. We can handle up to 60 passengers, a full bus load. Or, of course, come as a smaller group!! Groups always welcome.

River Updates 





Both RiverQuest and Adventure are out of the water at Chester Point Marina. While they are on land, Captain Mark will do some maintenance and cleaning on both boats. They will be put back in the water in the beginning of February.....just in time for Winter Wonderland/Eagle Cruises!! Thus far, they are prediciting a gentler winter season this year, we hope they are correct! Ice is very pretty on the river, but, not 25 inches!

We are looking forward to getting out on the water with our new and returning customers. These winter cruises are educational and a lot of fun! And the river is very pretty this time of year. See you soon!

Also available to book are our very popular Tree Swallow Sunset Cruises. With many late August - September dates and more dates to come, also! 


We are proud to have been a part of this great documentary about the CT River by CPTV.  Captain Mark is interviewed and you will get gimpses of Mindy and Cathy.
