    Wildlife & Eagle Cruise

    Please join us Thursday, March 14th for a day trip on a Wildlife & Eagle Cruise. 

    From the CT River Museum docks in Essex at 2:00 pm we take a 2 hour “on-the-water” cruise to search for eagles & other winter wildlife.

    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.

    We will 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.   

    **New Eagle Couple:  They have been watching this couple all year as they established their territory. Riverquest has found a nest & watched them bring in sticks… hoping for some winter nesting activity there!

    $ 47 per resident.

    Max of 20, GSC bus        We depart GSC at 12:30 pm

    860-441-6785 or stop by weekdays 8:30 am until 4: 30 pm to reserve your spot!
