Plan your visit


As The Maritime Aquarium continues to recover from the long-lasting, COVID-19 related financial impact, your support has never been more critical. While closed for three months, The Maritime Aquarium lost millions in revenue during what is normally the start of our busiest period in the form of attendance fees, student groups, memberships, and events. We need your support now to help ensure the safety and well-being of our animals and continue to serve our community.

Our Exhibits

Come see the sea

We have 75 live exhibits featuring more than 2,700 marine animals of 300 species. Your Long Island Sound journey begins along a freshwater river and the shallow waters of the salt marsh, then moves into deeper and deeper habitats out to the open ocean.

Just Add Water

Trace a path from desert to rainforest – and meet animals of those environments - in this new exhibit!


Journey with Jellies

Get close to some of the most strangely beautiful – but painfully dangerous – animals in the sea.


Ocean Beyond the Sound

Features a 110,000-gallon habitat that is home to several types of sharks.
