Visitng Mystic Seaport By Water

Half the fun of Mystic Seaport can be getting there by the water. From all points north and south, the route up Fishers Island Sound leads to the gorgeous Mystic River, and shortly thereafter, to the stunning Mystic Seaport.

Mystic Seaport is the nation’s leading maritime museum. Founded in 1929, the museum is home to four National Historic Landmark vessels, including the CHARLES W. MORGAN, American’s oldest commercial ship and the last wooden whaleship in the world. Mystic Seaport ranges across 19-acres on the Mystic Peninsula with 50 buildings and hands-on attractions, including sailing classes; a million seafaring artifacts and historical photographs; SABINO, the oldest coal-powered steamboat in America; and a 250-year tradition of celebrating all things of the sea. From whaling history to wood carving and cooperage, Mystic Seaport is the place for those who love the sea and maritime history.

Mystic Seaport is located one mile south of exit 90 off I-95 in Mystic, CT. For more information visit
