Maritime Aquarium Lighthouse Cruise - Central Long Island Sound

Maritime Aquarium At Norwalk
10:00 AM - 3:30 PM

Venture out for rare close-up looks at historic lighthouses on Long Island Sound during a Maritime Aquarium Lighthouse Cruise, a special boat offering at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.

The Lighthouse Cruise on Sat., Sept. 8 will get participants close to six beacons in central Long Island Sound: Peck Ledge, Greens Ledge and Sheffield Island lighthouses in Norwalk; Penfield Reef Lighthouse in Fairfield; Black Rock Harbor Light in Bridgeport; and Stratford Shoal (Middle Ground) Light.

The 5.5-hour hour cruise leaves the Aquarium at 10 a.m.  

Aquarium educators will offer histories and anecdotes about the lighthouses, and also – when they’re in view – point out waterfowl. 

Tickets are $70 ($60 for Aquarium members). 

R/V Spirit of the Sound has a climate-controlled cabin but, because the best viewing is outside on deck, participants should dress for the weather. Binoculars will be provided, but bring a camera!

Please note that The Maritime Aquarium participates in the U.S. Lighthouse Society’s “Lighthouse Passport” program, a fun way to log your lighthouse pursuits. Aquarium staff can stamp the books of “Lighthouse Passport” holders for every lighthouse seen during the cruise. (Bring your “passport” or buy one onboard.) Plus, members of the U.S. Lighthouse Society receive 10 percent ticket discounts for Aquarium lighthouse cruises. 

Space is limited so advance reservations are strongly recommended. Get tickets at www.maritimeaquarium.org or call (203) 852-0700, ext. 2206.
