About


Mystic Seaport provides an ideal destination, especially for those traveling by boat. Located on the charming and historic Mystic River, we are a short distance from Long Island Sound and offer well-protected docks that are north of both the Mystic River Highway Bridge and the Amtrak Mystic Railroad Bridge.

Boaters and their guests receive complimentary museum admission while docked at Mystic Seaport. We invite you to stroll through our 19th-century seafaring village, climb aboard historic vessels, and explore exhibit halls. After visitors are gone for the day, our guests have the unique opportunity to enjoy the beauty of our grounds in the evening, an experience reported by many to be the most magical part of their stay.

Dockage also includes free wireless internet, power, water, and additional amenities. Downtown Mystic, located just a short walk from Mystic Seaport, offers a variety of dining and shopping options. We look forward to your visit and will do whatever possible to make your stay with us an enjoyable and memorable one.

The Amtrak Mystic Railroad Bridge opens on demand when no train traffic is present. The Mystic River Highway Bridge opens 40 minutes after the hour when requested. Both bridges can be hailed on channel 13.

In the off-season, please excuse any delay in response as our dock staff works part-time. Requests are checked once a day, Monday-Friday.

Great facility. Lots to see and do unlike many marinas that have nothing to offer inside or outside the gates. We were especially lucky because they had an antique car show on one of the days we were there and we got to see the cars for free.

Mystic Seaport is a fantastic place to visit by boat. Cruise in to the 1800s. Dock near a Whaling ship or old Clipper. The museum is a great place. The Marina is one of the best. All of the people are friendly, always there to help. Greg is wonderful. He has the best crew working with him. Kenny and Gay are both nice and caring people. Sometimes we feel like were going back just to visit with them. We would highly recommend visiting.

Great staff Tranquil especially when the seaport is closed. Easy access to town. Great for kids to visit the seaport with a lot to keep them busy and interested. Shows exhibitions boat building kayaks and even sailing lessons available. This has become a regular boat stop for us each summer. Great lobster sandwich at the galley. Consider a mariner sesport pass for docking discounts and to help support the museum.

We have visited Mysic Seaport by boat several times over the years. It is always an enjoyable and unique experience. The bathrooms are clean. Being late in the season (Monday of Columbus Day weekend) it was the least crowded we have seen it. In fact we were the only boat there. We got some great pictures of the historic ships lit up at night. We will certainly be back.

It was so awesome staying at Mystic Seaport Museum. Greg the dockmaster was so helpful and friendly making sure we had everything we needed. The museum itself was amazing and that we had access to it after hours was even cooler. It was an easy walk to great restaurants. Our only gripe, not the marinas fault, was that we were docked right next to a 100 foot yacht who ran their exhaust belching generator all day and night. Stinky and noisy. Other than that our stay was fabulous, cant wait to return.

Cool concept and really worth the stop for the museum, especially for kids. Dockhand was full of hustle, but not the most knowledgeable (A+ for effort and friendliness). Unfortunately, we had to use all of our hoses plus some of the marinas to get fresh water to reach the boat. 240v electric was a challenge at only 200v, so our electric motors were all overheating and not functioning properly, most particularly A/C and it was hot and humid. Had to cycle genny and do my own multimeter diagnostics on all dock power, which was far from the boat due to earlier arrivals getting the limited number of close hookups. I think I had a total combination of 5 50/30a power cords to get power to the boat. Last gripe, the heavy rain causes certain slips leasees to walk through gravel and grass, making a total mess of the boats. All in all, still just shy of a 5 star experience. Would definitely go back.

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!

Great time at the seaport, pleasant friendly staff at the dock. Issues with the dock. It is a long climb up at low tide and required fender boards, which were supplied, because of the pilings. A warning, If towing a dinghy, place it along side your hull. Some one else left their's on the tow line and the dink went under the dock at low tide. In the morning at high tide, it was trapped under the dock and they had to wait for the tide to drop before they could leave.

This was our first stop on a tour of the Sound, and we couldn't have asked for a better time. The facilities are amazing, and when the tourists leave, you have the run of the Seaport. It really makes you feel like you have gone back in time. The location is also quite protected which minimizes rocking. Plus, it is a short 15 minute walk or even shorter dinghy ride to town in case you need anything additional. We look forward to coming back next year.

Mystic Seaport is the best New England destination, you can stay over night when the Museum is closed, and stroll the historic yard after hours. It is very protected, new shower facilities, and close to town. Very reasonable slip fee. I used DOCKWA, Vessels up to 167' and 12 foot draft. MUST VISIT!
