We are located in historic down town Mystic, Connecticut once the leading seaport of the area and now a well-known vacation destination. As our name suggests we are the closest marina to downtown Mystic. Our marina provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere with a close proximity to all the restaurants, shops, and other tourist attractions. Our location is between the bridges providing protection and calm waters for a pleasant stay. The railroad bridge is usually open for boat traffic. When the bridge is closed for train traffic, you may hail the Mystic River Railroad Bridge on VHF Channel 13 to inquire about the next opening.
Unfortunately we were not able to stay for our full reservation due to Hurricane Henri.
Great location. Dockmaster Brian was very helpful. There are many shops and good restaurants. The slips can be a little tricky when the tide is running hard but Brian was a big help. The railroad bridge tender didn't answer any radio calls when we went through but the bridge did eventually open. T.his is a great place to visit for a few days
We were in a difficult position because the bascule bridge was broken and we couldn’t get to our scheduled destination. We contacted the Marina and Brian was an All-Star! He came over and met us, said he had room for our boats and personally docked us! Super friendly, great location, go-to Marina in Mystic from now on! Try it!
Friendly place, great help with docking and easy access to town.
Years of coming to Mystic and finally ended up spending a night at Mystic Downtown Marina. Wish we’d done it long ago! The place is terrific, quiet, quaint, the bathrooms and showers are very clean, and Brian was a fantastic host. We found our new go-to when in Mystic.
Great stop, convenient to town, friendly management.
It was relaxing marina with a great view and conveniently located very close to downtown. Would definitely go back for another visit.
Amenities were clean, location is perfect and the Dockmaster Brian is super helpful and accommodating! We will be going back there for sure
Great stay. Brian helped out with docking. Easy in and out. Facilities well maintained and adequate. Lots to see and do within walking distance in Mystic.
Great marina. Staff super helpful and friendly. Location is fantastic. We will definitely be back!
Mystic Downtown Marina is a gem! You are staying right in historical Mystic. One of the best pastry bakeries on the the east coast, Sift, run by Adam Young is a few hundred yards away. The river is very calm and currents are modest. You can easily go up mystic river with a dinghy or paddeboards to Mystic Seaport. The dockmaster, Brian, is exceptionally kind and helpful. Showers and restrooms are nice and clean. We have been staying a couple of weekends each summer and hope to be back later this season again.
Great spot on mystic River, Brian was super helpful.
This was a great experience. First the marina has the best location possible. It’s in a quiet residential part of town but the restaurants and shops start literally a block away. It’s maybe a 5 minute walk to the center of town. It’s probably the best located marina I’ve ever been to. Brian, the dock master, is the best. We had some problems with the boat and got a quote to fix it. Brian asked how much and found us a great vendor for half the price. He is truly there as an advocate for his residents. He lives on site and he keeps an eye on things. I think he knows everyone in town and was an incredible resource. I know, I really am enthusiastic about this stay. We went for a day and stayed 7. One of our top 5 stops ever over 15,000 miles cruising.
Best location in town & Brian is the best at accommodating, plus helped with other concierge services. Highly recommend this town& marina.
Dock is Very Convenient to walking into town (3 mins) and the Dock staff are super nice )Brian)
Great location and service. Brian is a professional and a pleasure to work with
Conveniently located. Excellent service. Very accommodating and flexible. Brian is a great host and will take care of you.
I can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was at Mystic Downtown Marina. The Dockmaster, Brian, was so friendly and helpful! The marina is clean, accommodating and close to downtown. Everything is in walking distance! We were only going to stay for one night but chose to extend our visit an extra night specifically because the marina was amazing! Sending some extra love to the marina cat, Blackjack!
Enjoyed our stay. Great location. Friendly people
Personalized service and a fantastic location made for an excellent experience. Highly recommend.
Brian is awesome. Great place to stay! Right in Downtown Mystic in walking distance to sll Mystic has to offer. Marina staff was very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this marina
Very helpful dock hands. Clean showers. Great location. Very quiet at night.
We were lucky to call and get a spot last minute. As a testament to the loyalty of the boaters who return here, the owner of the boat "Gypsy Too" actually filled in for Brian to help us into the slip. Not only that, we were low on hydraulic steering fluid and this patron, that's right..a PATRON, actually filled it for us and essentially fixed a loose steering problem while we had dinner. And then he reused my offer to reimburse for the fluid. While I have only spoken to Brian on the phone, how nice do you have to be to have your clients motivated to help in your absence. I can't wait to return. By the way, this location is a 3 minute walk to the middle of all the action in Mystic. Awesome experience.
Excellent stay and facilities
Loved our stay, very helpful staff. Asked for another day. will be back
Beautiful town and MDM is a great location to explore it from!
We really enjoyed our stay. Brian was extremely friendly and helpful. The marina is in an excellent location for visiting the downtown area with many restaurants and shops close by. Little or no wake from passing boats during our three day stay. Wi-Fi performance was outstanding!
Great location steps from town and you don’t have to wait for the highway bridge schedule. Dockmaster is extremely friendly and lives onsite so if you need anything it seems like you can always ask. Picnic tables and a grass area to let the kids play was great (even if some cranky people in the condo nearby said music was too loud in the late afternoon). Would definitely go back
This is our absolute favorite marina to travel to! Located directly on the Mystic River you can't ask for a better place to sit and "watch the world go by." The staff is happy that you're there and makes everything very easy. The other boaters at the marina are helpful and friendly. The grounds are well kept and the facilities very clean. There is a lot of pride taken in keeping this marina 5-stars and it shows. As for location to restaurants and entertainment, you are a short walk to downtown shopping and numerous restaurants. We look forward to our stop each year to Mystic Downtown Marina and highly recommend it.
We always enjoy being at Mystic Downtown Marina....Brian was very helpful with assisting us to our dock and helping us with getting us settled .....answering any questions. Great place!
Our visit to Mystic Downtown Marina went off without a hitch. The location is perfect for boat and people watching and easy access to downtown Mystic. Dockmaster Brian was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and even took us for a dingy ride in Old Port Mystic. Another visit and another wonderful time!!! We would highly recommend this marina for location and service.
Brian was wonderful. He accommodated us at last minute and was very helpful getting our boat into the slip. Though transient space is rare at the marina, I would like to return next year.
We had a great stay at Mystic Downtown Marina. Marina is steps away from main downtown area of Mystic, heads and showers are very well maintained and Brian could not have been more helpful and welcoming. We’ll be back soon!
I never stayed at Mystic Downtown Marina before but was pleasantly surprised with the warm feeling we experienced during our stay this summer. First of all the location couldn’t be more convenient. Located steps from all the shops and restaurants and just a short walk to the Seaport, you couldn’t ask for a better location. Brian who runs the show was extremely accommodating on arranging a slip on short notice for a very busy weekend. On departing the marina I forgot my dock step. Brian has gone out of his way In arranging to have someone deliver it to marina in Greenport. Definitely above and beyond the call of duty. It is now on our list go to marinas, a well deserving 5 star. Kinship
Great location, just around the corner to town and walking distance to the museum. Brian, the Dock master was extremely helpful and provided great recommendations on places to go and where to eat.
We're back for the second year, and multiple stays. Brian, the dockmaster, was super helpful - even keeping us informed of pending weather events! Our neighbors were fantastic - treating us like we were not transients and remembering us from last year. Walk into town is around the corner. We will be back!
Dock master, Brian could not have been more available or accommodating during our two day stay. Upon arrival, he was there to help with our lines & to fill us in on where we could find anything we needed at the marina. This was our first time in Mystic on our boat, so he suggested a few restaurants we might like within walking distance. We loved the location of the marina...a short walk into town & perfect for exploring the river & all its marinas in our dingy, and terrific boat & people watching. Mystic Seaport was a great nearby destination too. There’s a small private parking lot on Water Street for guests that may want to come for the day. We would highly recommend Mystic Downtown Marina!
Dockmaster Brian could not have been more helpful, replaced a faulty power cord outlet on the spot, came by twice during the weekend to ask how our power was and if our lines were to our liking!! I have never had such attention in all my many years of boating, he would peruse the docks during the day just to make sure everyone was taken care of...... a true dockmaster’s dockmaster ........ outstanding ! Go there, it’s beautiful and get treated like royalty !
Great location. Great facilities. Great people. What more can you ask for? Will absolutely be back.
Excellent staff and service. Short walk to town.
Great location and very helpful dock master River/tide current - need to be aware
Great stay! The location was great and Brian was always around to see if we needed anything. I would recommend to anyone going to Mystic.
Great location and facilities; walking distance to the best of Mystic; always enjoy our stay!
Other than excellent location, nothing special. Bathhouse-laundry-restrooms are clean, well-maintained. Be prepared to dock on your own. Dock master Jack is friendly, helpful in other way but unable to assist with lines. Piers still functional but beginning to show their age. Overall, a good experience.
Eric and Owen were great. We pulled into a bow first slip with floating dock right on the Mystic review. Fun to watch the boat’s go by and wait for the drawbridge at 40 minutes past the hour. No bouncing around despite a pretty stiff breeze. Very quiet, friendly group of boaters. The 50A shore power at the pole was 208V but Eric pulled out a dockside boost transformer that got us up to 230V. Overall good stay. Will be back.
