Get Involved in Our Conservation Efforts!

Over the past few years, our research vessel crew has proudly participated in the Unified Water Study. This groundbreaking water quality monitoring project helps deliver more reliable data to further our understanding of the health of Long Island Sound which, in turn, will inform and support our actions to preserve and protect it.

Members are invited to join us out on the water for a sunrise sampling trip to observe the study, learn about Norwalk’s outer harbor ecology, and enjoy the Sound as day breaks! Passengers are welcome to bring their own coffee and breakfast items onboard.

Capacity is limited to 10 passengers each cruise, registration is required. Cruises are free with a suggested $20 donation. Please keep in mind that all passengers must be at least 42” tall.
