We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mystic Seaport. We had intended to stay only one night but extended for a second night to wait out a frontal passage. I'm glad we stayed the extra night because it gave us time to see much more of the grounds. The dock staff was professional, friendly, and very responsive. We berthed along the seawall on the northern side of the grounds. Tying up to a granite sea wall instead of a floating dock may be off-putting to some, but we had no problem with it as the dock staff helped set up the fender board and all was well. Tying up that way, at least to us, was in keeping with the history and tradition of the seaport. The head and shower facilities were nearby and clean. There are good restaurants within walking distance. As others have mentioned the real beauty of staying here in your boat is the ability to roam around the seaport grounds after visiting hours, which gives a really intimate and fascinating perspective of the place. We look forward to coming back!
