Welcome to our Sunset Cruise page!!
A couple thoughts…..
If you are coming with friends or family that booked this cruise on a separate reservation, we would like to have a table set up so you can all sit together, so, please let us know via an email the reserved names.
Our Sunset Cruise is an intimate cruise, offering a relaxing cruise for adults only so you can leave kid thoughts at home and enjoy the evening.
For the Sunset Cruise, reservations are normally required. You can easily book on-line.
NOTE: Usually, there is room for walk-ons, but, we ask that you reserve ahead so we know how many are some coming on this great cruise! If we do not recieve any bookings, we may have to cancel a cruise.
ADVENTURE offers a peaceful, relaxing, intimate affordable Sunset/Evening Cruise on the beautiful lower Connecticut River. It is beautiful out here anytime. Cloud cover is OK!
On ADVENTURE we will usually have a small table for you and there will be a chair available so that you can sit comfortably during the cruise. The cruise is very casual, you can walk about the boat.
Bring your full dinner picnic basket and your "favorite" beverage (alcohol is allowed). We do not have any food on board.
At the end of a hectic workday, busy day with the kids (parents: get a sitter, take a break), visiting, new to the area or a local who just wants to remember the beautiful area we live in, please join us aboard ADVENTURE and experience the river as we cruise along these unspoiled waters.
On this cruise, about two hours in length, we do only light narration so that you can just relax and enjoy.
Enjoy the spectacular beauty as we aimlessly cruise the lower Connecticut River, an area that the Nature Conservancy considers to be "One of the Last Great Places".
Bring a group (NOTE: up to 10**) of your friends, co-workers, family or just yourself. Gather around a table with your picnic basket and your "favorite" beverage (alcohol is allowed).
