Evening Norwalk Islands Cruises

July 9 - September 3

Enjoy a relaxing happy-hour cruise out to along the Norwalk Islands. Maritime Aquarium educators will be onboard to point out sights and answer questions about Long Island Sound's marine life but there's no formal program. These evening cruises are timed for the bonus opportunity to watch as twilight paints the western sky and reflects colorfully off the water. Get back in time to enjoy an evening out with friends just steps away in the restaurants and nightspots of South Norwalk. Advance reservations and masks required.

We look forward to welcoming you back on the water, and as always the safety of our passengers and crew remains our top priority. We are closely monitoring the pandemic and corresponding C.D.C., State, and U.S.C.G. regulations and guidelines and will continue to update and adapt our protocols accordingly.
