The 2016 season is over, but, we will still be cruising on the river in our 17' boat Scout as long as the weather holds out. Capt Alex and I went for a ride on Sunday, November 13, Haddam to Hamburg Cove. There is still a bit of foliage on the trees, yellow, brown, burgundy, green. We saw at least one dozen Bald Eagles of all ages, some Double Crested Cormorants and two Opsreys (see picture of one to the right). No wintering ducks yet. 


Next cruises for the public will be Winter Wildlife Eagle Cruises starting February 4th and we will be departing from the Connecticut River Museum in ESSEX for February and March. RiverQuest will be back to her home berth in haddam April through October.
