Don't miss out on this exciting adventure!


We promise it will be a day you will never forget.



There are a limited number of available spots. 


Please sign up quickly so that you

The Nature Conservancy has dubbed this area as a true wonder of


the world, and we couldn't agree more. On this cruise, you will have


the opportunity to see some of the most breathtaking sights in our


own backyard. From the stunning Essex Harbor and Coves to the


picturesque Great Meadow, Hamburg Cove, Joshua Rock, and Nott


Island, you'll be amazed at the beauty that surrounds you.



And that's not all! Our experienced Captain and crew will guide you


through the towns of Old Lyme, Lyme, Essex, Deep River, Gillette


Castle, and more. Get ready to witness local wildlife, including the


majestic Bald Eagles, Osprey (April thru August), and other creatures


that call theriver their home. Don't forget to bring along your favorite


binoculars or borrow a pair from us. This is a cruise that's perfect for


everyone, so come join us and experience the wonder of nature like


never before!
