New floating docks are the bomb! Wonderful time was had by all. Mens showers and bathrooms were spotless.

by colinsouth on Aug 07, 2022
It was a pleasure to dock in the midst of so much history and with such great service providers. The bridges need to be timed but that is just logistics.

by carolansteve on Aug 06, 2022
Our second time visiting this season As always a great staff in a great place Hope to be back soon

The new docks are beautiful. The staff is great!

Enjoyed the River, Marina, and town.

by roycar235 on Aug 04, 2022
Friendly and helpful staff. Dock service was great!

by rjcolston on Aug 04, 2022
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. Another great visit July 2021. Greg and his team took great care of us as always. We’ll be back soon.

by mbkuck on Jul 29, 2022
Greg, Gaye, and the Seaport crew were spot on as usual. Museums is fantastic. The new floating docks are beautiful and make your stay easier. Don’t forget if you become a Mariner Member you receive discounts including for transient slips.

by delca on Jul 25, 2022
This is a must stop. The visiting docks are new with restrooms and showers nearby. The staff is amazing and went above and beyond to make sure we had all we needed. Of course, its right at the Seaport Museum, and you get grounds privileges after hours. The Museum is wonderful, only comparable to the land based Williamsburg, VA.

by ojo4max on Jul 21, 2022
The new floating docks are really nice. The dock crew help with docking and there is a lot to do at the museum. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Overall a great stay.

by jlotspeich34 on Jul 18, 2022
Lived up to all the hype. Quiet, idyllic, beautiful, welcoming, friendly. The dock staff were wonderful. We received clear arrival and departure instructions once our reservation was confirmed. The nearby town was quite nice to walk as well. Definitely a highlight of our trip.

by rmclok95 on Jul 18, 2022
Our stays at Mystic are always fantastic! Dock staff is friendly and helpful, and make us feel right at home. Can’t wait to go back!

by dentelle on Jul 17, 2022
Clean place. New Docks.Helpful staff.

by boghav on Jul 17, 2022
Brand new docks, great staff, Greg dockmaster super accommodating, restrooms are modern and very clean. Bonus of free roam of the Seaport museum, and only a 20 min walk into town, 5 min by dinghy! The Tavern just steps from the docks is a great option for linch and dinner.

by montegobay12 on Jul 16, 2022
Top notch service and hospitality .

by occasumsomnium on Jul 15, 2022
Chris has a very professional team onboard. Greg and his crew are the real staff. Knowledgeable, patient, understanding, and ready to help on command. Far superior staff service than most marinas where we have been. I SHALL come back here ! 😉😎

by mattbud on Jul 13, 2022
Our annual stay at the Mystic Seaport Museum is always the delight of our summer. The marina staff is very professional and accommodating.

by klewis2727 on Jul 13, 2022
Greg Zabel, dockmaster, and his crew were phenomenally helpful and friendly people. It’s these kind of folks that you love to meet when coming into Port for a little holiday.

by ajbenet on Jul 12, 2022
Excellent. Beautiful dock and excellent dock hands

by jakl on Jul 12, 2022
Excellent setting, quiet marina. Walking distance to the center of Mystic for restaurants and shopping. It was really nice to visit the quality museum at a leisurely pace.

by richardfleischman on Jul 12, 2022
Always 5 stars. Friendly, helpful and a great team. Manager Greg is always a pleasure. r

Always one of the best places for boaters...Great place and town

by driftless on Jul 11, 2022
Just awesome! Brand new super fancy docks, great staff, sparkly clean washrooms and an absolutely fantastic Museum! Hope to come back later this summer.

by reelmagic on Jul 09, 2022
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 davidblezard on Jul 08, 2022
Stayed 3 nights. Very nice and helpful staff. Unfortunately no burgees available for new members.

by annsmarty on Jul 06, 2022
Such a unique place! Docking could get tricky if you are placed closer to the South entrance but the team is super helpful. We will be back!

by wdsneddon on Jul 05, 2022
Greg and Gay and all the staff are great. Very helpful with everything! We love just hanging out here because it's such a fun and comfortable place to be. Love the new floating docks. Wish we could be on one of those next time! Thx, Cap'n Bill

by buzzz11672 on Jul 05, 2022
Very private clean marina, staff was awesome and friendly, bridges are annoying if your on a time schedule of trying to beat bad weather but would still come back for a longer stay

by alex48 on Jul 02, 2022
Low voltage at docks but beautiful new docks and very friendly staff

by nloiselle on Jun 22, 2022
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 tomsoko on Jun 22, 2022
Super friendly and helpful staff. Welcome package includes Seaport wristbands for all onboard. Very pleasant stay.

by scamper on Jun 22, 2022
Great place to visit. Very friendly helpful dock staff. Fabulous new floating docks. Easy walk to town for great restaurants.

by peteowens3228 on Jun 20, 2022
Helpful staff, new docks, clean facilities. Fantastic museum. Great town. Enjoyed our stay

by cbleuher on Jun 16, 2022
Greg the dock master provided directions to the dock when we radioed in after clearing the highway bridge. He also was there to greet us and help with lines. Clean bathrooms, great new floating docks and access to the Seaport, couldn’t ask for more.

by juanmarquard on Jun 12, 2022
Wonderful staying within the museum!

by dreamwalker on Jun 04, 2022
The new floating docks with Epi decking are fantastic. One day is not enough to take in all that the Seaport offers.

by tomf5611 on May 31, 2022
Magical. Aside from all the normal exhibits that the Museum has to offer there was music on Saturday and Sunday afternoon that upped the atmosphere and raised the bar out of reach for any other Marina. After dark walking the streets of the Seaport you are lost in time under the stars. Dawn was even better. (0500) Not a soul with me aside from the birds and rabbits starting the day. Everywhere you looked there were reflections of history on flat water. Fate brought me to walk along Hobey's Dock and a memorial to Hobart Ford, Jr. , Lost in Action at Sea, April 29th, 1945. Not lost on me was the fact tat I was standing there, alone, at dawn on Memorial Day, 77 years later. A personal Thank You to Gunners Mate 2nd Class Hobart Ford Jr. for his ultimate sacrifice. SV Far Out Tom & Lisa Firsching - Caretakers (PS. New floating docks installed last week are a very welcome upgrade.)

Wonderful people, docks, and the boats!

by shar on May 30, 2022
Mystic Seaport by boat is always a wonderful experience!! The Seaport offers such a wide range of options for exploring. The grounds and buildings are so well kept and offer all ages an experience to be remembered. Our group had a private tour which was awesome!! The new floating docks are definitely an improvement and make boat access so easy! Improvements in the town - new cobble stone walks, spectacular new exhibits - Story Boats, live music, and more!! Put it on your cruising list. Everyone working at the dock office and grounds very welcoming and helpful!!

by datenight on May 30, 2022
Docking staff was fantastic. Multiple staff members standing at the ready to help with lines as we approached the Seaport. Could not be more attentive to our docking needs. Beautiful setting. Quick walk (15 minutes) to downtown Mystic.

by watercolors on May 30, 2022
Very friendly and efficient staff that go out of their way to make your stay great.

by sethfarwell on May 21, 2022
I stayed because I always wanted to tie up at the Seaport. There might be nicer marinas nearby but it isn’t the Seaport! The people there were great especially considering it was a last minute reservation. Very accommodating, with power and water at the slip. Happy to lend power cord or help tie up if need be. They will have new dockage completed very soon which will be much nicer, but for my purposes my slip was good and the proximity to everything outside of the Seaport was great. For me it was worth every penny!

by actionstedl on Oct 12, 2021
Great location, Greg and his staff were great. Amenities were clean. Always nice to be in mystic

by eggharbor on Oct 11, 2021
Clean, accommodating, and the best dock master and staff! Everything within walking distance.

by northstar1 on Sep 27, 2021
Facility outstanding and very accommodating, with interesting surroundings. Always a pleasure to see some new exhibit. Friendly and helpful staff.Peaceful after hours.An enjoyable weekend.

by sal32 on Sep 19, 2021
My family and I loved this place. Stayed 3 days, very peaceful and calming location. Access to the old seaport at all times was very nice and great place to take a stroll at night or sunset and sunrise. Bathrooms and showers for boaters were very clean and private from the public bathrooms. Pet friendly facility and just a 10 minute walk to downtown Mystic shops and restaurants. Staff was very friendly, helpful and welcoming and the park is safe and has gated security access in and out of the park. Easy docking in and out. Will definitely be visiting again!

by tennis895 on Sep 14, 2021
Great stay at the Mystic Seaport Museum

by dougout3 on Sep 12, 2021
Wonderful visit. Museum exceeds expectations. Staff was great on docking instructions and assistance. Really, one of our best overall experiences, and, of course, Mystic Pizza

by davenorth on Sep 10, 2021
Mystic Seaport is always a nice stop. always a few interesting boats visiting .

by ppaglia on Sep 05, 2021
Upon arrival immediately greeted and assisted with tying up boat and shore power. Very helpful staff with dining suggestions and access to museum was fabulous. Wish we could have stayed longer! Will be back.

by soozell on Sep 04, 2021
MSM is now among our very favorite locations to visit. Surrounded by historical whaling ships and other craft, our 55' Kadey Krogen trawler weathered the passing remnants of Hurricane Ida easily, and without a sense a major system passing us. The harbormaster, Greg, has a voice that will ease any captain into an unfamiliar marina, provided a fender board for our use, and shared the background of this extraordinary seaport museum and still active ship builiding/restoration location. Decent wifi and power, and you could easily spend a week and not see all this museum/town/marina has to offer. The museum staff clearly love their work, and include many with extensive knowledge of whaling history, seamanship, or wookworking. Tour the Charles W. Morgan, a whaling ship from the 1800's, currently being refurbished. An easy walk north through beautiful landscape takes you to an Aquarium (will have to see next year--no time this year), groceries and more. Head south from the marina and you'll find a plethora of restaurants/bars/shops in an idyllic maritime village. We became a museum member because it reduced the price of our slip fees. But after our visit, we'll likely want to remain a member to ensure this gift to maritime and history fans will remain healthy. You do not want to miss this port. Highly recommend. Thanks, Greg, for kindly and patiently answering my plethora of pre-docking questions, and for helping to make our stay so memorable. See you next Spring.

by aequitas on Sep 01, 2021
Had another great stay at the Seaport. Greg was very helpful. It's a magical feeling to walk around the Seaport after the visitors have left for the day. Like going back in time.

by babyaudax on Aug 31, 2021
We have been coming to the Seaport for years, and especially enjoy bringing friends so they can also experience the magic of the museum and river. Staff and volunteers are always pleasant, helpful and informed. A "must see" in New England!

by chrisdclausen on Aug 28, 2021
We love coming to the Mystic Seaport Museum . Greg and staff are the best!

by skipper724 on Aug 27, 2021
Great staff!!!!!!!!!!!

by jbsahrbeck on Aug 26, 2021
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 fifth year and we look forward to coming back next year.

by stierkenny on Aug 25, 2021
Dock staff extremely helpful. Mystic seaport is a charming town; as well as a historical educational destination.

by samuelcabot on Aug 21, 2021
The only problem was that the power was inconsistent and failed at times. The location was excellent and the people attending the docks were superb.

by whereisloulounow on Aug 20, 2021
Totally worth the wait for the bridges, as it's a really charming location. It's a few minutes walk into town, but scenic when you do.

by bgeiser on Aug 19, 2021
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 michaelcosta on Aug 19, 2021
Fantastic location! Staff was terrific. Hope to get back there soon.

by jeffjohnston on Aug 17, 2021
awesome destination. Need to clean up men's room showers...mold

by boatfamily on Aug 17, 2021
The dock master was great. Dealing with many boats coming at one time and she was so professional and did a great job tying up our vessel. Went over everything with us. The museum was beautiful and very nice to walk threw.

by scubano on Aug 17, 2021
Great staff, every one was friendly and helpful, we would have extended our stay if there had been availability. The grounds are well kept and the exhibits are excellent. We enjoyed peaceful walks in the evening after the museum closed with our dog. We will definitely stop again on our way south in fall.

by ekm on Aug 13, 2021
Perfect venue…lots of room, easy access to town w bikes. Clean and plenty of things to see at the musiem

by dsiesel on Aug 12, 2021
The Dock Master and entire dock crew are helpful, customer service focused and just great people while being professional . The marina is beautiful and special with all that the history and opportunities to learn that Mystic Seaport Musium can offer. It is one of my favorite places to visit.

by rossaveal on Aug 10, 2021
Fabulous facility! Terrific, cordial, and helpful staff! A wonderful place to visit! Thank you!

by rckids1 on Aug 10, 2021
Awesome place to visit!

by ezkwiatkowski on Aug 05, 2021
Mystic Seaport is a wonderful place to visit. As a marina destination there are several issues. First, the bridges are a hassle every time we visit - hard not to have to wait for an opening. Second, if you’re traveling with a group the seaport will raft you. We were assigned a bulkhead location rafted with another boat. So we wound up with a fiberglass view to port and museum tourists to starboard. No soap in restroom and wi-fi very slow. Staff was helpful. Add a star if you’re into the museum but there are easier ways to visit Mystic south of the bridges, especially given the price.

by khw4zqpfrgpsahshtmls on Aug 02, 2021
Very accommodating, will definitely be going back.

by kml on Aug 01, 2021
Greg(Dockmaster) was great along with his staff. The help get every boat docked secured. Great facility. It was our yacht clubs first trip the Mystic Seaport and did not disappoint!

by davidcomando on Jul 28, 2021
The place is amazing, The dock hands are professional.

by josephafickjr on Jul 27, 2021
Fun as always! Except for the loud music at y the he catering facility, although it did stop promptly at 10pm.

by zshipley on Jul 26, 2021
The mystic Seaport Museum is an excellent stop for anyone interested in boats. But this is a review of the marina, not the Museum. We did not use any of the shoreside marina facilities (bathrooms, showers), so we can’t comment. We were docked at a fixed pier, and the intertidal range was about 3 ft—not ideal, but not a big problem. There are floating docks, but I think we may have been too long (~50ft) for the floating-dock slips. The marina is more thoughtful than most in providing fender boards to address the challenge of aligning fenders with pilings at its fixed piers. Mystic Seaport lies on the Mystic River above 2 bridges (railroad bridge & highway bridge) with closed clearances of only a few feet. Nothing but a low dinghy can pass under them. The opening times of the highway bridge are once per hour in summer—a major factor in cruise planning. The railroad bridge is more flexible except when a train is approaching, but these two timing constraints may interact inconveniently. Read about them elsewhere. Importantly & positively, the dock staff is superb: capable, informative & friendly. The town of Mystic has good restaurants & fun shops. The town offers a public dinghy dock a couple of blocks upriver from the bridges. The dock staff can tell you where it is. Anyway, less than 5 stars because of bridges & fixed docks.

by evslate on Jul 26, 2021
What a fabulous 3 days we had at Mystic Seaport Museum! From our spot next to the Amistad, we had a front row seat to all the activities at the museum. The staff at the museum were all very friendly and provided top notch service. Access to downtown Mystic and its restaurants and shops was a very easy and pleasant stroll. Plenty to do and see at the museum; the exhibits and associated staff were incredibly knowledgable and personable. If you sail, take advantage of the incredibly reasonable ($15/hr) cat boat rentals and take a cruise up the river to the highway bridge... well worth it! All in all, we highly recommend a visit here. I know we will be returning!

by bliegl on Jul 26, 2021
great location, great stuff, great facilities

by pla on Jul 25, 2021
The staff was exceedingly attentive with docking, electrical hookups and procuring ice. Overall we enjoyed the museum. The museum is within walking distance into town

by bettycaffo on Jul 22, 2021
Our second time to sail here and this was even better than the first. We were docked at the north end and it is exquisite--beautiful open bay, very rural. Watching the kids on their boats was great entertainment. The whale exhibit was excellent, and the facility for visiting sailors was very close and very clean. A delight.

by sbarron0724 on Jul 21, 2021
The dock staff were very good at helping with docking. We came with 11 boats and they packed us in tight and safely. They also helped with pushing us off when we left the next day. They were very professional.

by rhseye2020 on Jul 21, 2021
Well run dock , friendly dockmaster and crew. Extremely helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating. Made look like a better captain than I am. 20/20

Always a wonderful spot no matter how many times you visit.

by jcwfpmd on Jul 08, 2021
Great staff Greg, Gay and Jonathan always make you fell comfortable and happy you came. 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 fairbries3 on Jul 05, 2021
Wonderful experience for the family

by motoringmariah on Jul 02, 2021
Super nice location, people and the history OMG! Have not been back to the museum since the late 70's when I was young. So cool to be able to tie our boat up inside the Museum and walk around at will. Walking around after hours was nice as it was cooler and no crowds. We needed a package shipped in and a return out and the staff was SUPER helpful in making that happen for me. A short walk into the town of Mystic was well worth the effort to visit Mystic Pizza, S&P Oysters, and the ice cream shop next to the bridge was fun and tasty! Look forward to returning at some point! God bless all the volunteers that make the museum successful! DONATE! Preserve the maritime history, this place is doing GREAT things IMO....

by mikethedrummer on Jul 01, 2021

The dock staff were very friendly and helpful. The Seaport grounds are always fun and interesting to explore. It is an easy walk to Mystic with lots of nice shops and restaurants.

From a great greeting to our hail, dock master meet us made sure all of our needs were meet. Kept checking in on us. Very nice stay.

Thank you so much for your review and we can't wait to welcome you back!

by evelyne on Nov 03, 2020
This was a magical experience for us, staying in a museum! You have access to the whole site at all hours! "A night at the Museum" movie come true! They have all kinds of cool activities every day, everyone is just so so very nice, the bathroom and shower house is great, small walk to downtown Mystic and Old Town, it was all just perfect. Oh and the internet is really good.

by belleofthewest on Oct 04, 2020
Nice small marina in the Seaport. You can stroll around the museum before and after it closes and get a real feel for the the history here.

by clg11374 on Sep 29, 2020
The marina was great, and staying at the seaport museum overnight is an amazing experience! The bathroom and showers were spotless!

by s28zncyux8jzurdf34dp on Sep 28, 2020
Terrific place, scenery in and across from facility see Iñiguez and beautiful, so much to do, a treasure!

by daysailj on Sep 27, 2020
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 !!

by nivanoff on Sep 20, 2020
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.

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.

Mystic Seaport never disappoints. Helpful staff; will be back!

by malinapd on Sep 06, 2020
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 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. Thank you Vincent

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 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.

Beautiful location and very helpful and competent staff. Met us at the dock and helped us secure the boat and settle in.

When you stay at the Seaport you are free to roam the grounds after closure which places you back in time.

by dsleiman on Jul 22, 2020
Great atmosphere and a safe alternative during Covid. Large spread out outdoor exhibits and terrific staff

All was well, helpful staff, wonderful boating experience see you soon

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 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

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!

Greg is an outstanding dock master and employee.

Great service from dock master, Greg.

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 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 cappyjd on Jul 11, 2019
Amazing place, great service and the surroundings are beautiful. Plenty of things to do to keep everyone entertained.

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 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 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 !!!

by jsbenet on Jun 11, 2018
Incredible and unique experience -- would highly recommend.

by tshepley on Jun 11, 2018
Very accommodating staff, wonderful historic environment, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were entertained and educated at the same time! Lorraine and Tony Shepley

by goodmar on Jun 11, 2018
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 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!

About Mystic Seaport Museum

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. New this season we have installed 820' of new floating docks and new shore power.

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.
