Getting close to sharks, seals, otters, jellies, sea turtles and other amazing animals from Long Island Sound inspire The Maritime Aquarium’s visitors to appreciate and protect the Sound and other marine habitats. Year-round study cruises take visitors out onto the Sound to experience its amazing animals in their own environment. Changing exhibits, special events, three hands-on touch tanks (including jellyfish and sharks!), and Connecticut's largest IMAX theater (with a six-story screen) ensure every Aquarium experience is fun and educational, too.

The No. 1 aquarium in New England as rated by TripAdvisor users (September 2015), and named "Best Family Attraction" in New England by Yankee Magazine (May-June 2016).
