A portion of the proceeds will go to the East Haddam Fuel Bank.

Cruise starts at 5:00pm. Please arrive early. Departure is from Eagle Landing State Park in Haddam.

RiverQuest’s The Adventure is NOT handicap accessible, walkers are okay if your guest can step over a 6-inch door sill.

Enjoy the entire evening! We will spend about 3.5 hours on the water.

The cruise is primarily about the Tree Swallows, however, it is also about the journey there is so much to see while cruising along the river. Many birds are migrating through the area at this time; for the fall season, we saw a record number of Bald Eagles and Great Egrets last year. On board Naturalist(s), will educate you on the Tree Swallow phenomenon and all the other wildlife we see. On the return cruise home, there is time to chat with others and experience the river at twilight, blending into night.

Don’t forget your camera and binoculars.
