About Our Boat Tours

Mystic Boat Adventures offers unique guided mini power boat tours where you are your own captain and get to drive the boat yourself for one or three hours. Our tours are fun and exciting, all while giving you incredible views of local, historic Mystic sites along the Connecticut coastline.

With four departures per day, you can easily book a time that works with your Mystic plans. Running around all day? Experience a beautiful Connecticut sunset on our most popular tour of the day, our sunset cruise, which is the last tour every afternoon and departs at dusk. Unwind from the day with the best seats on the water!

For all our cruises, we provide a small cooler with two bottles of water for each boat. Feel free to bring a small lunch, snacks, and other drinks to put in your cooler if you’d like! We offer a special 10% discount for parties of six to eight people!

Requirements:

  • You must be 18 years old with a valid driver’s license to operate the boat.
  • For safety reasons, there is a weight limit of 250 pounds per person.
  • Children 8 years old and up may ride on the boat with an adult. Life preservers must be worn by all children aged 8 to 15.

Alcoholic beverages are prohibited during the tour. The driver must be under the legal limit for alcohol to navigate the boat. If a driver appears to be under the influence of alcohol, we have the right to refuse service.

Two people must be in each boat that goes out on the tour (excluding the guide boat). In the event you have an odd number in your party, one person can ride with the guide or be paired with a person from another party. That person must meet the requirements for operating a watercraft. There are opportunities to switch drivers and riders during the tour.

If a person doesn’t meet eligibility requirements to operate one of our boats (18 years of age and possess a valid driver’s license), they are paired with a person from another party.
