Older kids and adults (all passengers must be 42" tall)

Study marine biodiversity beginning at the water's surface in this first-hand exploration of Long Island Sound's interdependent marine life.

Watch the Aquarium crew use a plankton tow, trawl net, and biodredge that may bring up a variety of fish, crabs, mollusks, and more right before your eyes! A reminder that all passengers must be over 42 inches tall (and riders under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult). Advance purchase is strongly recommended. Capacity is limited. "Walk-up" tickets will be sold, space permitting. 

Participants must be at least 42 inches tall. Capacity is limited so advance reservations are strongly recommended. Masks are required on board the boat at all times.
