My mom was in town visiting so I took her to Mystic for the day. She loves the water so I booked the 2.5 hour Argia morning sailboat excursion to start our day. It was very easy to make reservations by calling the phone number on the website. Everyone from the person answering the phine, to the person checking us in and the crew were bery nice and helpful. The bota is beautiful and clean and well kept. The boat was only half full which was nice because I think it would feel very crowded if filled to capacity at 40+ people. The crew of 2 and the captain were knowledgable and friendly. The ride was very calm through the channel past the two bridges and light house which were very interesting to learn about. Once in the open water the crew invited anyone to help with raising the sails. The kids got a kick out of doing this. Unfortunately that morning there was minimal wind and we didn't move very much with the sails up. The trip seemed to drag on at that point. The crew stopped narrating and we had a lot of time to kill before turning back. Luckily it was cloudy and not sunny because there is no shade on a sailboat unless you go down inside the cabin. It was relaxing but young children and restless adults will grow weary floating around not going anywhere for an hour. And don't get excited about the snacks and beverages. It was a big jug of lemenade or water ands small bags of snacks and chips from Costco. All things considered it was OK for $44 per person but I think very pricey for a family of four. My mom really enjoyed herself which was most important to me.
