Take a scenic half day or sunset cruise in protected waters aboard the Argia, an 81 foot replica of a 19th century schooner around the Mystic Seaport Museum from July 1st to Labor Day. Snacks and beverages are included on these sails.
REALLY enjoyed this trip. Not too long, not too short. There is a scenic trip out the Mystic River under power and then a great sail in the Sound. They gave us cheese and crackers and we brought a bottle of wine. You can also buy a bottle of wine from them when you get there. We had a drifter day and just sailed along slowly. Didn’t get very far under sail, cuz no wind, but boy was it peaceful! I just haven’t felt so relaxed in a long time. The crew says the earlier sails (we went at 5:30) typically have more wind and cover more ground, but I really liked the experience we had. BTW, they go by Argia Cruises now, still the Schooner Argia though.
it looked like rain in the morning, but the sky cleared and it turned into a beautiful day. we got to help set sail, and then just relaxed for a few hours on the water. if you want any beer or wine, you have to bring it yourself, but there's a nice little store across the street with all those other "neccessities". the crew was friendly, and next summer we'd love to go back!
