River Updates



It looks like our Haddam/East Haddam Harbor view from our wheelhouse camera is back up and running! Soon to be live streaming.

The East Haddam Swing Bridge Ospreys still have at least THREE "swinging chicks"! Yay!

And we are beginning to see the heads of chicks in many other nests along our journey. Looking forward to a good Osprey baby year (special Osprey Cruise on Sunday, July 17 at 9:30am, come on board)! The evening sunset's have been spectacular and the weather has been cooperating. Still seeing Bald Eagles, both young (immature) and mature (white head/white tail). Seeing more Great Egrets, such a beautiful bird, herons, ducks and more. On our Summer Solstice Full Moon Cruise, we saw female Common Mergansers! And then on Tuesday evening from the top deck of Adventure, we saw a Common Merganser couple. A single male was spotted, also. Normally we only see this duck n the winter time!

Speaking of Adventure, she is available for charter, also. We have had a few charters thus far and she is fabulous!

Check our calendar and/or Special Cruise Date page for the upcoming schedule.
