For a boater, every day on the water is fun – but some trips are truly something special.
You may launch from Larchmont or Long Island, NY. Perhaps you’re setting out from Newport or Warwick in Rhode Island. No matter how you begin your trip to Mystic Seaport, when you come by boat you experience the Museum in a very special way.
Up Long Island Sound, through The Race, or the Watch Hill passage; all these routes lead to Fishers Island Sound and the gorgeous Mystic River. As you wind your way past the village of Noank and ease up the river, framed by a host of historic homes with exquisite river views, you pass through the Mystic River Railroad Bridge and the Mystic River Bascule Bridge to arrive to a most hospitable welcome at Mystic Seaport.
Here you can dock and make your temporary home for a night or a week…or even longer. Everyone aboard the boat also receives free admission to the Museum so you can explore the full scope of Mystic Seaport’s offerings. From the historic Henry B. duPont Preservation Shipyard to the America’s last wooden whaleship, Charles W. Morgan, there is so much here to explore and discover. And when the sun goes down, you have the unique opportunity to enjoy the tranquil grounds without hustle and bustle of the day’s visitors.
