Beautiful and comfortable 82' schooner. Crew is extremely pleasant and knowledgeable in regards to sailing and the history of the area. If it was the 5:30 cruise, I would have had wine and snacks to make the trip even more luxurious!

Truth be told, my wife and I took the sunset cruise as our first night out since having our 2nd child. Leaving our 2 year old and 3 month old home with our parents, we spent the evening in Mystic and began our night with the Argi sunset cruise. Absolutely amazing...to say the least. The boat is a thing of... More

Relaxing and fun sail for our 2 boys (9 and 13). Our older son even helped with raising the sail. The crew told stories about the history of Mystic CT and surrounding islands. It was a great time ! Thanks to Captain Amy and her crew.

From the booking procedure to the cruise, it is top-notch. The crew of the ship is amazing and knowledgeable. The ship is kept in pristine condition. Complementary... More

Very smooth sail out to the Sound. The crew works so hard and is very friendly, answering any questions you might have. A nice long sail. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Mystic.

The fog was responsible for our first attempt to sail cancelled, we were delighted to get on the morning sail the next day! The crew was knowledgeable about the history of the ships at Mystic Seaport and gave short talks about places as the ship motored through Mystic River. When we got under sail it was so beautiful and lots... More
