Broaden your horizons
With a Cruise on the Connecticut River!
TREE SWALLOW BOAT CRUISE TRIP
Join us aboard RiverQuest for a Tree Swallow Spectacle twilight river cruise. Depart from Eagle Landing State Park, Haddam and cruise south to an area where up to 250,000 Tree Swallows come to roost for the night. We will watch as these birds converge just before sunset, perform a ballet and then dive down into the reeds to sleep for the night. Bring a picnic basket with you and enjoy the scenery as Captain Mark and crew inform you of this phenomenon and other points of interest points we will see on our journey down river. Pack a picnic dinner and BYO-beverage. If you are interested in carpooling from the YMCA, meet in the lobby at 3:45PM.
