Seal-Spotting & Birding Cruises with The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk
April 9, 2022
An event every week that begins at 12:00am on Sunday and Saturday, happening 28 times
These invigorating 2.5-hour cruises aboard the Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk’s hybrid-electric research vessel Spirit of the Sound™, seek 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.
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.
For more information and to make reservations, call 203-852-0700, ext. 2206 or log onto maritimeaquarium.org.
