About Mystic Boat Adventures
Get ready to be amazed as you have an unforgettable experience driving your own personal power boat up the Mystic River. On our 3-hour tour you can get an up-close and personal view of historic landmarks, including the Mystic Drawbridge and Mystic Seaport. As we head back down into open water, we let it rip and catch breathtaking views of the Fishers Island Sound, local lighthouses, and CT, NY, and RI waterways. This is one of the most unique adventures you’ll ever have, definitely a bucket-list adventure you’ll never forget! Feel like a kid again driving a go-cart for the water. Don’t have enough time to spend 3 hours with us, we also offer a 1-hour tour that is a full open water adventure, that’s still a blast!

The instructor was rude and obnoxious! He was very unhelpful and just took off without helping people that were clearly uncomfortable with operating the boat. He totally lacked patience and is really in the wrong line of work.

My wife and I just took our third trip with Rob and loved it just as much as the other two. It never gets old. This time, however, we took the sunset trip rather than the morning. It was nice seeing the sun go down over the water. The boats are a blast to drive and easy to operate. They are incredibly maneuverable due to their size so playing around in the open water is great fun. The best thing to do is dump the throttle and let it rip! Be prepared to get a little wet but not terribly soaked. It's refreshing on a hot day. If you have any doubts about this, put them aside. It's a wonderful experience. You'll have nothing but fun!

Boats were easy to operate, fun and fast! Tour guide was friendly and had tons of information. Loved the tour of the Mystic River and seeing all of the old whaling ships. Definitely a bucket list experience!

We had a group of 7 people, ages 18-73. Everyone had a great time. It was the perfect combination of information about the area and time exploring in the boats.
