Explore the Maritime Aquarium
Investigate the fascinating marine life of Long Island Sound when you book a visit to the Maritime Aquarium
in Norwalk, CT. Seals, sea turtles, otters, sharks and crabs are abound in this facility's enormous tanks, and visitors can experience hands-on fun exploring crabs and sea stars at the aquarium's Touch Tanks.
