Whether there is snow or ice, Long Island Sound is always full of fascinating wildlife, especially during this cold season when the water is free of boat traffic.
So, grab your warmest coat, hat and mittens and embark on a Winter Creature Cruise which departs from the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk.
Visitors are always hoping to see the wintering population of hooded, harbor and grey seals that lounge on rocks around the Norwalk Islands at low tide.
Check out this DayTrippers video to see some of the sleek mammals, as well as unique birds and stunning lighthouses.
