What a splendid way to spend a hot, humid afternoon with my family. Beautiful ship, gorgeous views, a peaceful easy feeling, and we were spoiled outrageously by the doting crew, especially Sky, who gave us all a great history lesson. Highly recommend the adventure!

We made a last-minute decision to escape the heat by taking a harbor cruise. Good idea. Nice boat, very friendly and attentive crew, calm water, nice views of Mystic-area boats, homes, islands

I would highly recommend the Argia for a 2 hour sail from the Mystic river. The crew was friendly, professional and efficient. Sky was a great storyteller while we sailed around Long Island sound. Great time for all!

Relaxing 2 hours. Gentle schooner motion. Once out in open water, motor is cut and sails go up. Only the whooshing of wind and lapping of water to unwind you from the stresses that vex you.

Very nice, comfortable ride up and out of the scenic Mystic River, with turn-around near Fishers Island. Crew was excellent and entertaining. Lite snacks and beverages provided. I might like to take a sunst sail next time.

6pm leave/8 pm return; schedule 1/2 hr earlier after Labor Day. It would be wise to look at their website (argia cruises) to get all of the information.

Well worth the $52 per adult! I don’t have prices for kids/seniors.
