Seal-Spotting & Birding Cruises - Maritime Aquarium
Through January 27, 2019 - Norwalk
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 cruises seek out the harbor seals and gray seals that come into the Sound each winter. Maritime 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.
Binoculars will be provided. The Aquarium’s boat has a climate-controlled cabin but, because the best viewing is outside on the deck, participants should bring plenty of warm clothes. All passengers must be at least 42 inches tall. Space is limited so advance reservations are strongly recommended. Walk-up tickets will be sold, space permitting.
