Seal-Spotting & Birding Cruise
January 12, 2019
This invigorating 2.5-hour cruise aboard the Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk’s hybrid-electric research vessel Spirit of the Sound™, seeks out the harbor seals and gray seals that migrate down into Long Island Sound each winter. Aquarium educators will point out these federally protected marine mammals and talk about their natural histories. These cruises also give birders unique “on-the-water” access to see and photograph visiting winter waterfowl such as buffleheads, mergansers, Brant geese and long-tailed ducks.Binoculars will be provided. The vessel has a climate-controlled cabin, but the best view’s on deck so bring plenty of warm clothes. Passengers must be over 42” tall. Tickets are $29.95, or $24.95 for Aquarium members. Departure times vary due to low tides, and space is limited so advance reservations are strongly recommended. Walk-up tickets will be sold, space permitting.
