We went for a two hour sunset ride on the Argia. The captain and crew of 2 guys was very informative and friendly. You can ride for $44 a person which was so worth it. They offer light snacks of cheese and crackers and beverages on the cruise. It was very relaxing and a beautiful sight. You can easily make... More

My mom was in town visiting so I took her to Mystic for the day. She loves the water so I booked the 2.5 hour Argia morning sailboat excursion to start our day. It was very easy to make reservations by calling the phone number on the website. Everyone from the person answering the phine, to the person checking us... More

My wife and I went on the 2:20 exclusionary it was the highlight of our vacation. The crew of 3 could not have been more friendly, engaging and professional. The 2 deck hands had amazing amounts of knowledge about sailing and all the sights along the way. We learned so much about the area! Any questions we had they engaged... More

We had a fabulous time on this 2-hour cruise. Captain Amy was great and her mate and deckhand -- Steve and Aaron -- were funny, entertaining, and knowledgeable. The sunset cruise was the perfect end to the day.

We stayed in Mystic and decided to take a sail on the Argia. We figured it'd be a good time but we had a great time. The Captain and crew were wonderful and were happy to answer any questions about the surroundings and the history of the area and even about themselves. We especially enjoyed the young man who did...

Our two and one half hour cruise on the Argia took place on what had to be one of the most beautiful days of the year. The weather was just an added touch to making this trip so very enjoyable. All passengers sit above board so all views of the trip down the Mystic River and into Fisher's Bay are... More

My daughter and I really enjoyed our sunset cruise on the Argia. There are some drinks and cheese and crackers provided, but you are also welcome to bring your own drinks and snacks on board. (I suggest bring something you really like to drink to make the time more special.) The schooner is beautiful. Our captain was part of the... More
