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.
Study marine biodiversity from the water's surface down to the bottom for a first-hand understanding of Long Island Sound's interdependent marine life. We utilize such sampling techniques as a plankton tow, trawl net and biodredge that generally bring up a variety of fish, crabs, mollusks and more right before your eyes!
