RiverQuest Cruises

On the lower Connecticut River, spring is heralded by the return of osprey and resident bald eagles. The ecotour boat RiverQuest, based in East Haddam, is now offering special spring cruises along the river to view these remarkable birds of prey as they prepare their nesting sites. Other wildlife that may be spotted include waterfowl, herons, egrets and hawks.

Sites of interest on the cruises include the Goodspeed Opera House, Gillette Castle and the Chester/Hadlyme Ferry.

The cruises are a little over 2 hours in length, at a cost of $40 per passenger (no children under 10 years old please). Complimentary coffee and tea will be available.
