Join Genesee RiverWatch on an exclusive cruise of the Lower Genesee River Gorge with experts on the Flora-Fauna and the History of the River. Guests will board the Harbor Town Belle and be treated to a view of the River seen only by a few. We will go upriver about 5 miles from the Port of Rochester to the 104 Bridge into an area that feels like a wilderness all within just a short distance of downtown Rochester. Tom Snyder of the Seneca Park Zoo will be with us to talk about the flora and fauna of the lower River Gorge as we pass marshes, wetlands, sheer cliffs and dense forest. Tom Brewer, Marine Program Chair of the Charlotte-Genesee Lighthouse Society, an expert on the history of the River will explain past and present influences of industry and the city’s history.
The Thursday, June 20th cruise runs from 5:30-8:30pm. The Sunday, August 18th cruise runs from 3:00pm to 6pm. A buffet dinner will be served onboard. Plan to arrive 15 minutes early to board.
Tickets are $35 for adults / $20 for children under 12 and includes buffet dinner. There will be a cash bar. Tickets are limited, so get yours soon!
