Cold winds are part of the Connecticut River in the Winter season, but so are eagles, mergansers, and goldeneyes! Eagles, once rare, are now commonly seen fishing along the unfrozen stretches of the lower Connecticut River. To celebrate these winter wonders, the Connecticut River Museum has planned a range of programs and activities.

The Connecticut River Museum once again partners with Connecticut River Expeditions to offer Winter Wildlife and Eagle Cruises in February and March. These popular trips offer visitors a chance to get out on the river to see eagles and other winter species that visit the waters of the Connecticut River, including harbor seals, the only marine mammal common to Connecticut. Cruises aboard the environmentally friendly R/V RiverQuest provide passengers with a comfortable, heated cabin supplied with hot coffee and tea, as well as binoculars to aid in spotting, and narration from a staff naturalist. These cruises depart Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in both the morning and early afternoon, and are $42 per passenger. Museum members get 10% off and group rates are available.

For a full listing of event details, go to or call 860-767-8269. The Connecticut River Museum is located at 67 Main Street, Essex and is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 AM 5 PM. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, $7 for students, $6 for children age 6-12, free for children under 6. To book your cruise on Riverquest, go to or call 860-662-0577.
