Winter Wildlife Eagle Cruises

February 8, 2020 - March 15, 2020


Each winter as the temperature dips below freezing, Bald Eagles from as far north as Canada make their way to the open waters of the Connecticut River for easy fishing and nesting. Climb aboard CT River Expedition’s 64 ft. RiverQuest, an environmentally friendly vessel with heated cabin and ample deck space. An on-board naturalist provides narration while you get an up-close view of the River. Coffee and use of binoculars is included in ticket price as well as admission to Connecticut River Museum galleries and the Eagles of Essex exhibit.


Starting Saturday, February 8, 2020 through Sunday, March 15, 2020, cruises depart on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. $42 per person; includes admission to the Museum’s exhibits and galleries.


Advance ticket purchase strongly suggested. Departures subject to weather conditions. Due to the length of this winter cruise, we ask that no children under 10 years old be booked.


GROUP TRIPS: Group reservations are available. Please contact the Museum Education Department at 860.767.8269 x113 to make a reservation.
