Our research vessel, "R/V Spirit of the Sound" cruises all year long, offering a cleaner and greener venue to explore Long Island Sound. All cruises leave from the Aquarium Dock which is located next to our IMAX® theater!
There is minimal handicap accessibility aboard the Spirit of the Sound. Please be aware that our staff are unable to assist in lifting people or devices, and that the ramp to the vessel dock can have a 25% grade depending on the tides.
Start your weekend off with a fun relaxing boat ride out to the Norwalk islands aboard the Aquarium's cool new R/V Spirit of the Sound, the only research vessel in the country with quiet hybrid-electric propulsion. Aquarium educators will point out sights and wildlife, but there's no specific focus ... other than a fun Friday-evening boat ride! Get back in time to enjoy a late dinner or evening out with friends ... all just steps away ... in SoNo!
Food & drink is not available for purchase on the boat. You may bring food and beverages in a small bag or soft-sided cooler. Glass bottles are prohibited.
Reminder that all passengers must be over 42 inches tall. Advance reservations are strongly recommended. Space is limited. Walk-up tickets will be sold, space permitting.
