Venture out with us for rare close-up looks at five historic lighthouses on Long Island Sound. During the 5-hour cruise, Aquarium educators will share histories and anecdotes about the lighthouses, and also point out the Sound's waterfowl.
We'll make passes by these lighthouses: Peck Ledge, Greens Ledge and Sheffield Island in Norwalk, Penfield Reef in Fairfield, and Stratford Shoal (or Middle Ground.) All the lighthouses are on the National Register of Historic Places.
R/V Spirit of the Sound has a climate-controlled cabin. Binoculars and water are provided. 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.
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!
