Upcoming Public Cruises

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!

Reminder: The time listed on your ticket is the departure time - please plan to arrive at the dock 15 minutes prior. 

Sunset Cruise

Enjoy a fun relaxing boat tour out to the Norwalk islands timed to include the setting sun and – providing cooperation beyond our control – a dazzling western sky reflecting on the water. Aquarium educators will point out sights and wildlife.

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.
