Oktoberfest Cruises at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk
October 5, 2019 - October 26, 2019
The Oktoberfest Cruises at the Maritime Aquarium will be held on October 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th starting at 5 pm and departing by 5:30 pm.
These adults-only cruises will showcase two different breweries each Saturday. Sample and enjoy the breweries’ flagship and seasonal products, while taking in the gorgeous sights on Long Island Sound. Each 90-minuted cruise are timed to include the setting autumn sun and, with luck, a dazzling western sky reflecting the water. Get back in time to enjoy dinner or an evening out just steps away in the restaurants and nightspots of SoNo.
