The Maritime Aquarium inspires people of all ages to appreciate and protect the Long Island Sound ecosystem and the global environment through living exhibits, marine science, and environmental education.
The aquarium had a wide variety, and every stage of growth. Everything is well-displayed, you can really get good views of all the creatures.
This is my favorite aquarium in Connecticut. It's large, beautiful, and had lots of great animals. My son loved the sharks and the touch tank with the huge sting rays and sharks.
Good place to take your children or grand children. No matter what your age is, you are assured to have a very good time.
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.
Trace a path from desert to rainforest – and meet animals of those environments - in this new exhibit!
Get close to some of the most strangely beautiful – but painfully dangerous – animals in the sea.
Features a 110,000-gallon habitat that is home to several types of sharks.
A family membership pays for itself in less than 2 visits!
