Ways to have fun in Connecticut on the cheap

Enchanted Fall Encounters on the Cheap

|

Love the thought of an enchanted early-autumn cruise by sunset? Cool breezes and amazing views of nature are nearer than you think!

Wonder is in the air this autumn on the banks of the Connecticut River. The CT Audubon Society is offering CT residents and visitors a unique event that will put you back in touch with the wonders of nature.

This fall, you are invited to traverse the Connecticut River by chartered boat while hundreds of thousands of Tree Swallows do their intricate rituals on the marsh. These small songbirds create quite a big show! The boat trips take place in the evening, creating amazing ambiance and catching the birds as they put on their best show. These beautiful swallows are distinguished by their bi-color feathering of iridescent blue and white. You have until October 3rd to book your seat on one of these enchanted night rides.
Departure time for the boat cruise is 5:30 pm. The return time is scheduled for 8:30pm. Each ticket is $40.00

The trips are sponsored by the CT Audubon Society EcoTravel.
