Seal-Spotting & Birding Cruises are back at the Maritime Aquarium

Starting January 14 & 15!
Available Saturdays and Sundays through March 12.

Journey out onto Long Island Sound in hopes of seeing some of the seals and waterfowl that spend the winter just off our shore. These invigorating two-hour cruises seek out some of the harbor seals and gray seals that come into the Sound each winter. Aquarium educators will point out these federally protected marine mammals and talk about their natural histories. They’ll also help identify such winter waterfowl as buffleheads, mergansers and long-tailed ducks. Passengers must be over 42 inches tall and if under 18 accompanied by an adult. Tickets at
