Mortensen Riverfront Plaza and Charter Oak Landing serve as departure points for two river cruise lines-- Hartford Belle Cruises and Lady Katharine Cruises.

Hartford Belle Cruises

The "Hartford Belle" is a beautiful 49-passenger riverboat reminiscent of simpler times. She has a mahogany-trimmed enclosed cabin, but Captain Fenn likes to keep the windows open to enjoy the warm summer breezes. A full bar is available to serve your favorite drinks and light snacks. There is ample seating, or you can stand on the bow to get the best views of your trip along the majestic Connecticut River.
