CT River Tides

The Connecticut River is affected by tidal influence. There is substantial change in water levels between high & low tides. The best time to launch and retrieve rafts is during high tide when more water is over the ramps.

Participants mooring their rafts overnight must leave sufficient slack in their ropes to allow for the changing water levels or leave their raft on the riverbank placed above the high water mark and tied off to a tree.
