Start your weekend off with a fun relaxing boat ride out to the Norwalk Islands, and get back in time to enjoy a late dinner or an evening out with friends just steps away in the restaurants and nightspots of SoNo. Aquarium educators will be onboard to point out sights and wildlife, but there's no structured program.
The TGIF Cruises are open to all, including children. But note that participants must be at least 42 inches tall to come aboard.
Food and drinks are 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.
All Maritime Aquarium cruises occur aboard our unique research vessel, R/V Spirit of the Sound™ (the only research vessel in the country with quiet hybrid-electric propulsion).
Space is limited on all cruises, so advance reservations are strongly recommended.
