Logo   Boat Cruises on the Mystic River
Why be a landlubber when you can get out on the water and see the world from a mariner's point of view?  




Mystic Seaport Museum has numerous ways that you can get out on the water, enjoy cooler air, and see the restored village and the Mystic River from a different viewpoint from mid-May through mid-October (Columbus Day).

Daytime cruises (10 am to 5 pm) are 30 minutes long. Late afternoon/evening cruises last 90 minutes.

All cruises require good weather, and are subject to a fee in addition to the museum admission fee.

This little steamboat is perhaps the most beloved of Mystic Seaport's vessels, as it takes visitors on 30-minute daytime cruises up the Mystic River from mid-May through mid-October (Columbus Day). There's also a 90-minute late afternoon cruise down the river.

This 26-foot, diesel-powered open launch takes passengers on 30-minute Mystic River cruises similar to those of the Sabino. Bring sunblock and drinking water.

Breck Marshall
This sleek 20-foot sailboat, a reproduction of a Crosby catboat, sets out on quiet, wind-powered 30-minute cruises when conditions are right, and offers a very different experience than the motor-driven Sabino and Resolute.

Small Boat Rentals
Want to do it yourself? Mystic Seaport Museum rents rowboats and small sailboats to visitors from its Boathouse.
