Great visit, as always. We’re surrounded by beautiful old ships and all the great Seaport exhibits are just steps away. We’ll definitely be back, often!
by segreen103 on Sep 20, 2020
Great spot on the river. Friendly helpful staff and great shower facilities. Super fun to walk the Seaport before they open and watch the work of caring for these iconic vessels.
by getzaway on Sep 20, 2020
great location for all things Mystic related. Access to the history of the whaling community is an amazing plus. Dock mistress Gay was busy but still took great care of us. We make this an annual stop !!

Mystic Seaport Museum is an outstanding place to spend a night or a week. It is fascinating as the daily patrons leave and the whole Seaport Village becomes your home taking you back to the 1800s. We have been coming for years and hope to be back for many more. Greg the Dockmaster, will make sure that your stay is not only memorable and enjoyable, but will also make sure that you will want to return time and time again. If you’re lucky enough to run into Chris, VP Of Watercraft Preservation, ask if he has the time to take you to visit their collection of boats not on public display - fascinating.

Had a great stay at the Seaport. Greg was very helpful. It's a magical feeling to wake up amongst the tall ships!
by sailingvesselpickle on Sep 13, 2020
Dock hand was phenomenal. Plenty of amenities. Super clean. All “public” areas were locked for “yachtsman” only. Perfect Covid getaway.
by dnauber on Sep 09, 2020
Beautiful spot. No working wifi but otherwise, great service from the Seaport staff.
by aha0320 on Sep 08, 2020
Great place to visit!! Great staff , dock master and wonderful location. My favorite destination
by michaelrg18 on Sep 08, 2020
Quiet, friendly welcoming staff, immaculately clean. Much to see and learn.
by jboullie on Sep 07, 2020
Mystic Seaport never disappoints. Helpful staff; will be back!
by mbkuck on Sep 07, 2020
What a pleasure, you are surrounded by history with easy access to everything Mystic Connecticut has to offer. Just a few minutes walk to the town center, don't miss being at Mystic River Park when the bridge opens, it's an event in itself. Treat yourself at the Mystic Drawbridge Ice Cream Shop. Lots of restaurants to choose from, we recommend S&P Oyster, Red 36, Bravo Bravo, and Captain Daniel Packer Inn. Breakfast is incredible at Sift Bakeshop or Little Kitchen. The Seaport Staff is the Best, Greg runs a smooth operation. Become a Mariner Member of the Seaport Museum and receive a discount for your stay. Our membership has paid for itself this season. Even without a membership, stay four nights, and the fifth is free, and it doesn't have to be all in one trip. There are also discounts Before Memorial Day and After Labor Day. PS Full access to the Museum displays and activities during your stay for you and your boat guests.

As always, Mystic Seaport was welcoming, flexible and accomodating.
by whertel on Sep 05, 2020
Staff was responsive and very helpful docking and departure. The museum itself is terrific. A staff member gave us a personal tour of the archive in the old velvet mill. A remarkable collection of marine items from early outboards and all manner of inboard engines to the prototype dyer dow.
by amydepatie on Sep 04, 2020
Amazing 2-day stay. Docking was easy with the assistance of Greg. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. Being able to walk the grounds of the Seaport is a great experience and makes for a unique stay.
by cmanero on Sep 02, 2020
Always great and Dock master was great and friendly
by jerryunion on Sep 01, 2020
Nice place to visit with kids. Very close to the town of Mystic , which is pleasant also.
by rrkrrk on Aug 30, 2020
Great place to stay in Mystic. Helpful, professional staff. Quiet, little wave action because the river is narrow there. Note that pump-out services on the Mystic river are limited to one boat and they are generally busy. Only Monday through Friday.
by boatdaze on Aug 29, 2020
The dock master of the day, Gay, was awesome. She was a huge help getting us a spot last minute as well as getting us tied up and situated. Very accommodating and a pleasure to work with.
by vgilmartin1459 on Aug 24, 2020
The service and staff were excellent. I was surprised to see a large flag flying high on one of the ships masts in support of a political organization. I would rather support an educational organization who did not publicly engage in that type of political activity.
by jmsbldrs on Aug 23, 2020
It was excellent quiet relaxing and great dock staff for help. Will definitely come back.
by krisgscott11 on Aug 19, 2020
Beautiful place for a few nights stay . Friendly and helpful staff - Rich was great !
by jbsahrbeck on Aug 19, 2020
This spot is not to be missed. The protected Anchorage is calm and gorgeous. 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. Plus, it is a short 15 minute walk or even shorter dinghy ride to town in case you need anything additional Or want to grab dinner, drinks or ice cream. This is our third year and we look forward to coming back next year.
by mightymac on Aug 18, 2020
An amazing location, lots to see, close to town. We especially loved the NUB, the new exhibit building, a modern interpretation of an 1800 whaling ship. You will not be disappointed.
by stme1234 on Aug 16, 2020
The staff is very helpful, the area is safe and lots to do. The bulkhead slips need some updating and the Outside water hook up is far away and needs multiple hoses. It’s a nice place to stay and enjoy the area and all it has to offer.
by capdon on Aug 02, 2020
Beautiful location and very helpful and competent staff. Met us at the dock and helped us secure the boat and settle in.
by deepharbor on Aug 02, 2020
When you stay at the Seaport you are free to roam the grounds after closure which places you back in time.
by roycar235 on Jul 31, 2020
Friendly and helpful staff. Several exhibits were closed, however, the restaurant Latitude 41 was open for dining and takeout.
by davenorth on Jul 24, 2020
Mystic Seaport is always a nice stop. This year several displays are not open which is disappointing but understandable. The shower in the men's room
only had cold water and barley any of that. The ladies room was reported to be in very good condition. The staff is very helpful as always.
by dsleiman on Jul 22, 2020
Great atmosphere and a safe alternative during Covid. Large spread out outdoor exhibits and terrific staff
by rta1ali1aolcom on Jul 20, 2020
All was well, helpful staff, wonderful boating experience see you soon
by 2captains on Jul 20, 2020
What a fantastic venue to dock in! We enjoyed the off-hours access to the museum. The surroundings are beautiful. The dockmaster, Greg was extremely helpful, pleasant and knowledgable. We had a great experience!
by reelmagic on Jul 14, 2020
The Seaport is one of most favorite stops. The staff can't be better. Always ready, willing and able to assist. Have stayed in the Seaport many times over the last 30+ years and each time is better than the last. Kudo's to all at the Seaport for making our stay so great.
by northstar1 on Jul 12, 2020
Facility outstanding and very accommodating, with interesting surroundings. Always a pleasure to see some new exhibit. Friendly and helpful staff.Peaceful after hours.
by dermdocny on Jul 06, 2020
Had a great time - only wish more exhibits were open although we understood the limitations due to Covid. The staff were very helpful and nice
by emco11356 on Jul 05, 2020
Peaceful and quiet. Just the way we like it.
by nicksea on Jun 24, 2020
Staff is always top notch, Rich would not leave until we were entirely satisfied with the tie-up and utilities. Even with partial closures due to COVID-19 it was very enjoyable to spend some mid-week time at the museum. We'll be back!
by nloiselle on Jun 05, 2020
Great place for a getaway and change of scene. Even though the museum exhibits were closed it was great to walk the grounds and have peace and quiet while docked. Marina staff were outstanding!
by jhotsky on May 24, 2020
Greg is an outstanding dock master and employee.
by eggharbor on Jan 30, 2020
Clean, accommodating, and the best dock master and staff! Everything within walking distance.

Great service from dock master, Greg.
by pceasrine on Sep 24, 2019
Great staff! Quiet harbor. Overall enjoyable trip
by temoran1942 on Sep 23, 2019
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.
by wbeckert on Sep 16, 2019
Great place for families.
by jabbo on Sep 13, 2019
Great stay right in the Seaport with free admission included. Restrooms clean and convenient. Fun staying right in the midst of maritime history.Short walk into town for many restaurants and shops.
by ricknelson on Sep 03, 2019
Always an excellent experience! Full access to the Seaport included with your slip fees.
Great views and amenities. Quick walk to downtown Mystic. Fantastic shops, restaurants, and bars. R36 is on the waterfront for food and cocktails. Inside Seaport Marine Grounds.
Great spot to wait for the bridge opening!
by jdlm on Sep 03, 2019
The Seaport is always amazing on our stay there this year we were treated to a running antique engine exhibit and we really enjoyed the Fireboat.
by wmpile on Aug 31, 2019
Mystic Seaport staff are helpful, communicative, and eager to see that a boater's needs are taken care of. As a Mariner level member of the Seaport, I also get a discount on the dockage. Being at the Seaport at night, after the crowds are gone, is magical.
by bgeiser on Aug 29, 2019
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.
by wdenslow on Aug 20, 2019
Great Service; Dockmaster top notch
by johnconvertito on Aug 14, 2019
We never miss a summer without going to Mystic Seaport. Our children are now grown adults and they insist we stop at least two nights at the Seaport.
The staff, as always, is courteous and attentive.
by garypsmarinas on Aug 12, 2019
Always look forward to being here and never disappointed. I have been coming here since mid 80's. Always a great experience to see the old and discover new exhibits.
by owoobly on Aug 11, 2019
I wish I could give it a 4.8:). Awesome place. Great people and location. A bit of a power issue. We have 2-50 amp cords. During the day we had to run the gen for our AC -the breaker couldn’t handle the load. Late in the afternoon and through the evening it was fine.
by tburton on Aug 11, 2019
Staying on he grounds of the museum makes it special. Docks and facilities are just ok. Staff is attentive and friendly. You can spend all day exploring the museum and the towns close
by aldente on Aug 10, 2019
Great place to stay, the historic ships and buildings are incredible. Very well kept. Dock staff is awesome
by jhlevine on Aug 08, 2019
Staff was incredible. Such a great experience to stay in a uniquely special place. We’ll be back!
by theblonderob on Aug 05, 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The facilities are clean and well-kept. The use of the seaport after hours was fun, we had been there during the day before but it was interesting to see it at night. We were really impressed with the dock staff. They were well organized, knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. We are looking forward to our next visit.
by kkendrek on Jul 24, 2019
We LOVE to visit the Seaport. The staff (Greg, Ken, Gay and all the others) are kind, helpful and welcoming. We love the free nights program. We can't wait to go back!
by rjcolston on Jul 23, 2019
Great staff to get us settled on the dock. Good services, including WiFi. We did not use bathroom or showers, so can’t comment on those. Easy access to town and great access to the museum. Being able to walk the grounds at night was wonderful.
by cappyjd on Jul 11, 2019
Amazing place, great service and the surroundings are beautiful. Plenty of things to do to keep everyone entertained.
by jcwfpmd on Jul 09, 2019
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.
by chrisdclausen on Jul 08, 2019
Lots of activities for kids!
by mattbud on Jul 06, 2019
Our annual stay at the Mystic Seaport Museum is always the delight of our summer. The marina staff is very professional and accommodating.
by jddiana on Jun 24, 2019
We always enjoy going to the seaport; it is a special place. The dock hands are knowledgeable and very helpful to all your needs. Our view of the Seaport at Mystic has not changed over the years!!
by tgrsscapt on Jun 24, 2019
I hate to rave about how amazing this facility is because I’d like to keep it for ourselves. Truly a highlight of traveling the New England coast. Great staff and experience. Full 5 starts because there aren’t 10 to award.
by pberardino on Jun 11, 2019
No place is better to dock than Mystic Seaport! Staff and facilities are great. More importantly, it's magical being there before and after the museum opens. A must visit place for all boaters. S/V Cynosure
by pharren on Oct 10, 2018
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.
by richardfleischman on Sep 09, 2018
Always 5 stars. Friendly, helpful and a great team. Manager Greg is always a pleasure. r
by anngreg1920 on Sep 08, 2018
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.
by whiffler on Sep 03, 2018
We love the Seaport! Warmly greeted by dock master with clear instructions, docking assistance and a comprehensive information packet describing current exhibits, a schedule of museum activities, and fun things to do at nearby Mystic village.
by normank on Sep 01, 2018
Fabulous place to visit. The museum, the staff, the local couldn’t be better. Great showers, restaurants. Everything!
by schippmom on Aug 31, 2018
We are members of the museum and this is one of our favorite places to stay. Great staff clean showers, laundry. Wonderful shops and stores nearby. So much to do and see!

by kfhallock on Aug 19, 2018
Gray stay - helpful staff and beautiful grounds. Could only wish for a floating dock. A bit of a hike to town but Uber readily available.
by gparthemos on Aug 17, 2018
Still here. Hard to leave.
by cjb347 on Aug 06, 2018
Always a fun place to stay. Great staff at docking office.
by bert50 on Aug 05, 2018
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.
by playmaker17 on Aug 05, 2018
Unique experience and some helpful dockhands! Thank you.
by tburling on Aug 01, 2018
Perfect in every respect. Easy dockage along wall, strong reliable wifi and surely one of the very special places to have a boat alongside the Charles Morgan and Joseph Conrad!
by matthoward on Jul 23, 2018
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!
by scottwp209 on Jul 22, 2018
Helpful dock hands
Nice and quiet place-not many slips
Short walk to town
by babyaudax on Jul 22, 2018
We stay at the Seaport whenever we are cruising in the Mystic area. The dockhands are always ready to assist and are superb in their ability to safely guide us to docking and tying up the boat on the pylons. Having the seaport to ourselves at night is icing on the cake!
by mentalblock on Jul 15, 2018
We had not been to the Mystic Seaport in several years do it was nice to get back. The dock hands were very nice. The shower facilities were a long way from our slip but having the Seaport admission included in the slip fee was a super perc.
by liberty on Jul 13, 2018
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.
by dtgreenwich on Jul 01, 2018
Great people, great location. Will go again
by georgem on Jun 30, 2018
The booking process for a slip was easy and fast. As instruced, we called the dockmaster after clearing the highway bridge. We received clear insructions and directions. Dockmaster Greg was there to meet us and help secure the boat. The head and shower facilities were spotless...the museum was Amazing . Special thanks to Chris for a tour of the archive facility We’ll be back !!!

always a pleasure staying at Mystic Seaport
by hwoodcome on May 29, 2018
The Seaport was great. There are excellent exhibits on whaling, the vikings, and even a planetarium. It is a short walk to the downtown restaurants and shops. A very enjoyable Memorial Day Weekend.
by edfam19 on Sep 16, 2017
Dockmaster Greg met us as we landed and from then on we had a great visit. The exhibits were just as good as we had hoped, the docents both volunteer and professional knew their stuff. The pleasant attitude of the dockmaster made us feel welcomed.
by charlesreich on Sep 06, 2017
My family simply loves staying at Mystic Seaport. The staff is incredibly friendly and having the seaport to yourself at night is very special.
It is a short walk into town. However, there are many car services available if you can't make that walk.
Also, the bathrooms are kept very clean.
by davidcomando on Aug 31, 2017
The place is amazing, The dock hands are professional.
by andrewporto on Aug 07, 2017
Staff was friendly, marina was breathtakingly picturesque. Very quiet. Short walk to town.
It was too quiet for our taste, but we found entertainment in town. Fixed docks could be an issue. Not an issue for me at all, but a guest and another boat had issues getting on an off.
by laketop on Jul 27, 2017
Great stay at the Mystic Seaport. Wonderful staff, lots to see, and very calm protected docking.
Our group got a wonderful behind the sceen tour of the Museum. We dock in Mystic and this is a first for staying on the grounds. Highly recommend a visit. This is not a late party place to stay.
by perryg on Jul 16, 2017
We were berthed right next to their wedding venue. It was a real treat to observe the ceremony and the following reception right next to us on Saturday night. Reception ended by 10:00 and all was quiet again. Will continue to have Mystic Seaport on our travel itinerary.
by laurina on Jul 10, 2017
Great marina especially since the seaport museum was included in the price of the stay. Thanks also very polite and hospitable staff.
by gt43 on Jun 26, 2017
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!
