Onrust and RiverQuest Cruises 2022

May 8 @ 2:00 pm - October 16 @ 7:30 pm

Two Ways to Cruise the Connecticut River
Sail on the Onrust or Cruise on the RiverQuest


The Onrust, a re-creation of the vessel Adriaen Block built in 1614, is available for public cruises and private charters through September 25.

Built over several years in upstate New York using traditional plans and means, the Onrust is a wholly unique ship that serves to educate and entertain visitors curious about the age of exploration, the fur trade, and our early colonial history.

Travel aboard the RiverQuest, a 64’ eco-tour boat, on the scenic lower Connecticut River, an area labeled by The Nature Conservancy as “One of the Last Great Places in the Northern Hemisphere”. On both vessels, guests experience the River’s ecology, rich history, and wildlife; including osprey, eagles and more.  Enjoy each season’s beauty as we cruise Spring through Fall.

River cruises are offered Thursdays through Sunday. RiverQuest cruises on select Wednesdays too!
