Founded in 1989, SoundWaters works towards a sustainable environment where people share a passion for Long Island Sound, students succeed and our community thrives. We enrich our community and protect our environment through teaching, training, sailing and study on Long Island Sound. 

Annually SoundWaters offers marine science programs for over 30,000 students, aboard our Schooner, at our Coastal Education Center and on and along the coast. We provide high level study opportunities, aboard our RV and in our labs, to give local high school students a path towards college success. We provide stewardship programs where the local environment is a springboard for personal growth and, finally, we offer a range of public programs and experiences to develop sustainable practices and engage the wider community in our region’s greatest natural resource: Long Island Sound.
