Description:

Journey out onto Long Island Sound in hopes of seeing some of the seals and waterfowl that spend the winter just off the shores. These invigorating 2.5-hour cruises seek out some of the harbor seals and gray seals that come into the Sound each winter. Maritime Aquarium educators point out these federally protected marine mammals and talk about their natural histories. Also, look for winter waterfowl as buffleheads, mergansers and long-tailed ducks. Binoculars are provided. The Aquarium’s unique hybrid-electric research vessel has a climate-controlled cabin but, because the best viewing is outside on deck, participants should dress for the weather.

The cruises offer memorable family fun but please note that all passengers must be at least 42 inches tall. Guests under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
