It was a very relaxing informative trip on Essex River. We saw a variety of birds, a seal, and lots of beautiful scenery, especially with the foliage at this time. For history buffs, the driver was a wealth of knowledge of the history of Essex area. Would highly recommend.

Good time out on the water with some basic factoids about estuaries and local history. The narration felt a bit automatic/mechanical at times. IMO, there was a LOT more the guide could have talked about, and I actually would have liked to have heard more about the fantastic ecosystem we were traveling through. But, if you're just looking to get out on the water for 90 minutes, this is nice...

From Our Editors

When the Ice Age ended more than 15,000 years ago, melting glaciers created the saltwater estuary that today sustains the Essex River’s myriad boaters, clammers, and fisherman. Amid this naturally beautiful backdrop, Essex River Cruises and Charters floats its two handsome spectator vessels, the Essex River Queen I and the Essex River Queen II. Guides lead daily, narrated cruises through the estuary, navigating the protected waters and pointing out the various local flora and fauna of the salt marsh.

Cruises embark daily from May to October and also include weekend cruises accompanied by coffee and muffins, during which passengers are serenaded by the plaintive cries of pelicans begging for the love of a good man. The fleet is also available for group tours and charters for up to 100 passengers at a time, and the staff caters signature clambakes and other events along the tidal beach. The cruise-curators even make big days memorable, transporting wedding parties to any of the many secluded tidal beaches in Essex Bay for ceremonies or receptions.
