Central Long Island Sound Lighthouse Cruise
Date: Sat., Aug. 19
Time: 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Tickets: $70 ($60 for Aquarium Members)
Cruise out with us for rare close-up looks at five historic lighthouses in central Long Island Sound. During the five-hour cruise, Aquarium educators will share histories and anecdotes about the lighthouses, and also point out the Sound's waterfowl. Bring your camera!
We'll make passes by these lighthouses: Peck Ledge, Greens Ledge and Sheffield Island in Norwalk, Penfield Reef in Fairfield, and Stratford Shoal (or Middle Ground). All the lighthouses are on the National Register of Historic Places.
Binoculars are provided.
R/V Spirit of the Sound has a climate-controlled cabin.
We will provide water. Food is not available for purchase on the boat. You may bring food and non-alcoholic beverages in a small bag or soft-sided cooler. Glass bottles are prohibited.
