These cruises will be offered many weekends through March 26. Dates and departure times vary by low tide.
During the 2.5-hour cruises, educators will talk about the seals’ natural histories and use artifacts to discuss seal anatomy. And they’ll discuss what happens with the Sound’s marine population during the winter: who stays, who migrates out and who migrates in (besides the seals).
These cruises also give birders unique “on-the-water” access to see and photograph visiting winter waterfowl, such as buffleheads, mergansers, Brant geese and long-tailed ducks.
Binoculars will be provided. R/V Spirit of the Sound has a climate-controlled cabin. All participants must be at least 42 inches tall.
Tickets are $29.95 ($24.95 for Aquarium members). Advance reservations are strongly recommended. Walk-up tickets will be sold, space permitting. Reserve your tickets by calling (203) 852-0700, ext. 2206.
