Enjoy a special water view of holiday displays in Norwalk, and avoid the crowds and traffic, by coming aboard one of the fireworks cruises offered by the Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk. — an announcement from the Maritime Aquarium
The aquarium is offering cruises to two fireworks displays aboard its R/V Spirit of the Sound, the country’s first research vessel with quiet “green” hybrid-electric propulsion. The 64-foot catamaran has two deck levels for optimum viewing enjoyment. Here’s the aquarium’s patriotic-pyrotechnics plan:
• Wednesday, July 3 – Norwalk’s Calf Pasture Beach display
• Thursday, July 4 – Rowayton display
Each cruise departs at 7 p.m. from the Maritime Aquarium dock (outside the IMAX Theater). Return is expected by 11 p.m. Food in small soft-sided coolers is allowed aboard the boat, but alcoholic beverages and glass bottles are prohibited.
