River Updates

 

 

Our "live" streaming camera is now  here! Look at the BOTTOM of this page for a "View From the Wheelhouse",  for a video of the Haddam/East Haddam Harbor while we are at the dock. Away form the dock, the picture is still. 

Tree Swallow cruises have started. Our first "public" cruise was August 26th and we had some nice viewing, along with a gorgeous sunset, four Bald Eagles, many Great Egrets and Herons, and a massive amount of Double Crested Cormorants. We have never seen this many, ever! We saw a flock of Common Mergansers fly by in Haddam Harbor. Unusual sighting, normally just a winter visitor.

We are mostly sold out on our Tree Swallow Cruises on RiverQuest....BUT, we have just ADDED Tree Swallow Sunset Cruises on Adventure! The fish are jumping, but, the river ain't high! 

 

Check our calendar for more upcoming regularly scheduled cruises and Special Cruises. We’d love to see you aboard.

ADVENTURE, is now available for charter, also. We have had several charters thus far and she is fabulous!
