Family Feeding Time at the Maritime

Families can help feed breakfast to the animals, while budding biologists dive into the worlds of turtles and sharks, through fun new public program on Sunday May 31 at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.


In the “Feeding Time” program, families enjoy a buffet breakfast at the Aquarium and then – prior to the Aquarium’s opening for the day – join the marine biologists on key stops of their morning rounds. Feeding time takes place from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m.

Participants take a turn feeding the diamondback terrapins, horseshoe crabs and rays, and attend a private feeding of the seals. Best of all, they go behind-the-scenes to watch the feeding of the Aquarium’s large sharks.

Cost is $45 per adult and $25 per child 12 & under ($40 & $20 for Aquarium members). Advance registration is required for public programs. Call (203) 852-0700, ext. 2206, or register online at under the “Fun & Learning” tab.
