The Eagles are Here!

Come to Essex and enjoy the comfort and charm of The Griswold Inn and experience the beauty and tranquility of the Connecticut River.

All aboard RiverQuest for a winter adventure: get an up-close view and learn the fascinating story of the majestic Bald Eagle. A naturalist will help spot these awe-inspiring creatures and point out other winter wildlife along the River. Winter Wildlife Eagle Cruises are two hours long and depart from the docks of the Connecticut River Museum. Binoculars are available for use on board and complimentary coffee is included. We suggest bringing warm clothes for the cruise. Though the cabin is heated, you may want to venture out on deck from time to time. Excursions are as follows:

Fridays @10:00 am and 12:30 pm

All departures are subject to weather conditions.
