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, your 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.
This unique exhibit allows guests to gently touch the tops of live moon jellies!
Gently stroke the backs of several species of sharks and a variety of rays!
Our woodlands habitat features Lew and Levi, two playful North American river otters.
A family membership pays for itself in less than 2 visits!
