River Updates 

 

 

 

OK....we finally got the lodged tree out from underneath RiverQuest, the river has subsided and is almost back to normal. Still very brown, but, the current is manageable. Lets see what else Mother Nature will bring! ha.ha. Anyway, it looks like the Osprey couple on the bridge are nesting. She has been sitting around for awhile. Goodpseed nest looks still viable. We'll check on all the other nests and see what else is happening on the river this weekend. Added May 4 departing at 4:30pm as another cruise. 

 

Don't forget to start thinking about Mother's Day! Cruise with Mom...she is 1/2 price!

Also, come aboard a Bicentennial Cruise about the war of 1812. Departs from Essex on May 10.
