The Maritime Aquarium located on 10 North Water Street in Norwalk has a new attraction, Pinniped Cove. Visitors will be thrilled with the close-up views of the Aquarium’s five female harbor seals – Rasal, Ariel, Leila, Polly, and Tillie – as they explore their enormous new habitat, which also is now The Maritime Aquarium’s largest display.
“Pinniped Cove” lets you follow the seals from three sides and two levels: underwater at floor-to-ceiling windows on the first floor; and above the surface on the second floor. This 22-foot-deep exhibit is more than eight times larger than its original exhibit!
“Pinniped Cove” celebrates seals – members of the pinniped group along with sea lions and walruses – as a conservation success story, through graphic displays that explain how their populations have rebounded greatly in New England.
Be sure to catch a “Seal-Training Demonstration” to learn more about seals and watch them being fed at 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. daily.
