Drive your own mini power boat up the Mystic River, where you can get an up-close and personal view of historic landmarks, including the Mystic Drawbridge and Mystic Seaport. As we head back down into open water, we let it rip and catch breathtaking views of the Fishers Island Sound, local lighthouses, and CT, NY, and RI waterways.

Leaping the Waves

Awesome adventure. So much fun! Skipper is one crazy guy. Had us ducking under the Mystic Bridge and cruising by historic ships in the harbor, But nothing beat doing figure 8's and donuts, and bouncing across the waves at full throttle. We all had such a wild time that skipper lost track of how long we were out and gave us an extra half hour! Will be going back with friends and family!

We had the best time!!

We did the 3-hour sunset cruise and it was amazing. Relaxing and gorgeous sprinkled with local information it all combined to be a really phenomenal way to spend our day! Our guide was great, super informative and fun! One would have to be insane to feel unsafe on these boats. They handle well, are delightful and unflippable. I will one hundred percent be back!

Fabulous time with personalized attention!

We had a great time. Arthur and Bob were professional, knowledgeable, joyful and very attentive to safety. They went above and beyond to make sure that my family and I had a great time. We strongly recommend this boat excursion. It balances sightseeing and relaxation with high energy activity and fun. We will definitely be doing this again!

Excellent time!!!

Rob is incredible, informative and patient. Showed us all the history of Mystic. We were lucky to be the only couple with him in the am, the weather was cold and cloudy but thanks to Rob it was still an amazing adventure. The boats are a ton of fun and easy to drive. He tells you everything you need to know. I can't thank him enough for his guidance and hospitality!!! I highly recommend doing this whether your tame or wild it's great for all!!!

A Unique and Amazing Experience

We took the 3-hour sunset tour over Labor Day weekend. We could not have asked for better weather. We went up the Mystic River and had a great view of Mystic Seaport and Mystic Village. Our perspective of these places from the water is really unique. Toward the end Bobby took the group out near an island in the ocean to watch the sunset and take some pics. It was a beautiful sight. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for something unique and adventurous to do.
