My husband and I had a delightful time on the sunset cruise. The staff were friendly and knowledable. There was only 6 passengers but we had a great time on the cruise. It was cool at night so it may be best to bring a jacket or sweater in Sept. The sunset was amazing. what a great night in Mystic!

We had an awesome afternoon sail on the Argia. The crew was friendly, knowledgable and fun! There is plenty of room, snacks and drinks and even blankets for the uninitiated that don't know it can get chilly out on the water. (Especially in September.) It was so worth the money, be sure to tip! These folks work hard while still... More

This is such a great experience. Very professional crew, with just the right balance of attention paid to the task at hand (sailing the beautiful vessel) and being receptive to the folks on board. All three of the friendly crewmembers explained about the various ships, homes, places of interest along the way. Some of the passengers helped steer for a... More

We took the sunset cruise ,unfortunately a storm was coming and we did not get much of a sunset, something that they can not control. We did however get a brisk wind and were able to be under sail most of the cruise, which was great. The 3 man crew was friendly , courteous and informative, although it was more... More

What a fun and beautiful cruise. We watched the crew climb the mast barefoot. Then hoist the sail and we were off up the Mystic River. Smooth sailing. I get seasick very easy and I was very uneasy about going. I never got the least bit sick. The river is very calm. They offered cheese and cracker platters. Lemonade or... More

We decided to take the 21/2 hour sail which cost about $100 for 2 adult tickets. It was an amazing day and the crew was very nice and accommodating. The views were beautiful and the only recommendation I have would be to share more historical information another the area. That would have made it a 5 star sail. The price... More

We really enjoyed the sail. The crew was both nice and knowledgeable and they didn't mind answering questions. It was a smooth sail and a nice way to hear about some local history and enjoy the great weather. Would definitely recommend this.
