AAA Editor Notes

Argia Mystic Cruises departs from Schooner Wharf at 15 Holmes St. Scenic sailing voyages aboard the 81-foot schooner Argia begin with a view of sea captains' homes along the Mystic River, pass through the famous Mystic drawbridge and head into Long Island Sound for a look at the Connecticut coastline, lighthouses and nearby islands. You'll hear about the Mystic area's rich maritime history and may even get a chance to help the crew hoist and trim the sails. The Argia—properly described as a two-masted gaff topsail schooner—is a replica of a 19th-century sailing schooner. Complimentary snacks and lemonade are provided. Guests are allowed to bring their own food and beverages; coolers and ice are available.
Fare $48; $45 (ages 60+); $38 (ages 0-17 with adult). Reservations are required.
Hours: Two-and-a-half-hour day cruises depart daily at 10:20 and 2:20, 2-hour sunset cruises daily at 5:30, May 1 to mid-Oct. Passengers should arrive 30 minutes before departure.
