Western Long Island Sound Lighthouse Cruise
Date: Sat., July 1
Time: 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Tickets: $75 ($65 for Aquarium members)
Venture out with us for rare close-up looks at eight historic lighthouses on Long Island Sound. During the 7-hour cruise, Aquarium educators will share histories and anecdotes about the lighthouses, and also point out the Sound's waterfowl. Bring your camera!
We'll make passes by these lighthouses: Greens Ledge, Sheffield Island, Stamford Harbor (or Harbor Ledge), Great Captain Island, Execution Rocks, Stepping Stones, Sands Point and Eatons Neck.
Binoculars are provided.
R/V Spirit of the Sound has a climate-controlled cabin.
We will provide water. Food is not available for purchase on the boat. You may bring food and non-alcoholic beverages in a small bag or soft-sided cooler. Glass bottles are prohibited.
NEW FOR 2017! The Maritime Aquarium is now participating in the U.S. Lighthouse Society's Lighthouse Passport program, a fun way to officially log your lighthouse adventures. Bring along your Passport, or buy one aboard the R/V Spirit of the Sound. We'll stamp your Passport for every lighthouse we see during your Aquarium Lighthouse Cruise. Also, members of the U.S. Lighthouse Society now receive 10% discounts on the Aquarium's Lighthouse Cruises.
