Saturday Night Sunset Cruises

June 15 - August 31

Saturday Night Sunset Cruises aboard the Becky Thatcher, a lovely evening ride down the Connecticut River from the boats’s dock in Deep River to the Baldwin Bridge, and back again. The experience includes a 15-minute diesel locomotive ride from Essex Station to the boat launch in Deep River, a two-hour cruise on the river, offering exquisite 360-degree views of some of Connecticut’s prettiest countryside, returning to Essex Station via train around 9 p.m. Food and beverages are available for purchase at the Becky Thatcher’s Snack Bar.
