Birding Watching Cruises. One of the Norwalk Seaport Association’s most popular excursions because it brings adults and children up close to birds in their maritime natural habitat. Adding to the fun is the fact that Long Island Sound is a birding hot spot in Connecticut, a state that is rich in birdlife with more than 430 different species. The Seaport's vessel, the C.J. Toth, a 49-passenger vessel will head out at 8:00 a.m. and return to the dock at 10:30 a.m. on Sundays, May 28, June 4, June 11, and June 18. Passengers on this eco-styled, guided bird cruise are being led by birding enthusiast, James Leone. A special highlight of this cruise is the chance to spot birds at the Stewart B. McKinney National Wildlife Refuge on Sheffield Island. Passengers are asked to arrive 30 minutes prior to the 8:00 a.m. departure. The vessel leaves from the Seaport Dock located on 4 North Water St., adjacent to the Stroffolino Bridge at the corner of Washington and Water Streets in South Norwalk. Parking is available at the adjacent lot or at the Maritime Center Parking Garage. Tickets are available online in advance at www.seaport.org. Photography: Michael Brinkley @norwalkseaport
