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.
