I would like to take a cruise but just use a walker. How handicap accessible is the ship?

Thanks for your question. The Argia’s FAQ doc has an answer regarding handicap accessibility.

Is there a. wood model for the ArgiaShooner? I sailed on her last year.

Thank you for reaching out. There is no wood model of the Argia. They sell T-shirts, hats, magnets, and stickers at their office.

What a wonderful trip! We booked the sunset sail from 6-8pm. Captain Jack and his crew Ben and Evan (ethan?) were amazing! Super sweet and they were kind enough to give us a blanket when it got a bit chilly. Also provided water and lemonade. You're allowed to bring your own drinks/snacks on board. Not one bad thing to say about the trip, highly recommend doing this if you're at mystic seaport!

This was a great experience. Everything was perfect! Amy AKA Miss captain lady, was the Captain of the boat during my trip. She was a complete sweet heart and a lot of fun. During the sunset cruise she had two deckhands that provided a wealth of information during the boat ride. They shared history and funny stories. It lasted about an hour and a half. She allowed wine and beer on the vessel, but no hard liquor. (Completed understandable) Her deck Hands gave us a wonderful tour of the surrounding island and lighthouses and homes. I got to see the infamous north dumpling island and fishermen island. They offered free refreshments and had snacks that could be purchased. The team also provided clean blankets in case anyone was cold during the trip. Mystic Connecticut has a great vibe and interesting history. I had an awesome time.

It's okay, we were expecting more of a relaxed BYOB Sunset Cruise. One of the seats was on the cooler that they kept moving around which was annoying. The crowd was all older and very stiff. The crew shared a bunch of historical facts. Not really the vibe we were looking for and not sure I would recommend or go again.

Good times. Crew is fantastic. It is BYOB(beer and wine only. NO HARD LIQUOR) The tour is a beautiful scenic adventure into the Atlantic with many historic and unique places along the way; including an island that once seceded and the general store where Amelia Earhart got married. Bring tons of sunscreen and water for hydration. I would not recommend doing this tour with little kids as there is a lot of down time. If you do make sure they have plenty of activities to stimulate them.

We had a great time on the sunset tour! Pros: Very punctual, clear safety instructions, great crew, and an absolutely beautiful sunset. We sat in the very back which was great from a crowding and viewpoint perspective. I would definitely recommend this experience!

This cruise was fantastic. Captain Eric, Jack, and Oliver were outstanding and made the cruise very enjoyable. They did a great job of highlighting the surrounding area by telling stories of it's history, incorporating a little humor in it. Their interaction with the guests was nice and it was very welcoming. The length of the trip was two hours and that was just the right amount of time. Unfortunately there was no wind that morning so we didn't get to cruise too far. I'm still glad we did it and would probably do it again when I come back to Mystic. This time for the sunset cruise.

Best sunset cruise ever. Captain and crew were professional and friendly. Very knowledgeable of the area, we learned a lot!! Sunset was beautiful and we took some great pictures. Water and lemon aid were available on the cruise (no charge). You can bring snacks and drinks onboard. Please remember to tip the crew when the cruise is over if you had a great time. We tipped 20% of cost. They deserved it!

Booked an evening cruise which they called and canceled because of the fog that was coming in, I didnt believe it because it of the blue skys, 2 hours later I was on the Stonington point and couldn't see 3 feet! Thanks to the lady who called me, would have been a dangerous and worthless cruise!

Photo of Mark H.

Loved this! We took the morning cruise, leaving at 9:30. Captain Amy gave us a great introduction to the Argia, and the ship hands Karen and Jack worked the sails for a fun 2 hour journey into stories of the waterside area. Jack pointed out many landmarks with some historical information, and Karen's storytelling skills were a hoot! It's a comfortable 2 hour cruise and they offer free water and lemonade. It's also BYOB for those interested. If only it lasted longer! Highly recommend!

I feel like the crew made the experience. Very nice and personable, well informed on all things mystic of course, with lemonade and water available on ship, the young man who was our commentator for the day was hilarious so that made it even better. The ship was clean. We purchased the bench with the seat back which was nice for our backs! There is a small bathroom on board below that was very clean. It was probably my fault but I really had no idea where exactly i was parking and where I was to go. Maybe I hadn't read the email well, but I think the best advice to give anyone is to park in the large pay lot but when you pull in drive to the left back towards the townhouses on the dock waterside and then walk to left towards the dock to get to the boat. We parked in the pay lot but we weren't sure where we were going after that. The walk really wasn't that bad at all though regardless. Bring layers and bring some cocktails! I would certainly recommend the ship!

Argia Mystic Cruises

Sail with Argia Mystic Cruises

Thanks to Argia Mystic Cruises, visitors to Mystic, Connecticut, can get a taste of what many in this seafaring community did in the 18th and 19th centuries — sail on a wooden sailing ship.

The Argia , a two-masted gaff topsail schooner that carries 49 passengers, sails out of downtown Mystic from May 1 to mid-October. 

“This town was one of the three biggest ship-building towns in the Northeast back in the day when we were building sailing ships,” said Captain Amy Blumberg. “Our Mystic Seaport Museum basically preserves that flavor. The schooner Argia , the sailing ship our company runs, is the only way in town for somebody to actually be able to go out on the water on one of these traditional sailing ships.”

Mystic’s location makes sailing easy for those not used to traveling on water, Blumberg said. 

Fishers Island, a kind of a geological extension of Long Island, provides protection in the waters outside the harbor, Blumberg said.

“We’re very, very protected so on windy days we don’t get much in the way of waves, which is terrific for visitors, but we’re also surrounded by islands and lighthouses and gorgeous homes,” she said. “Instead of having open ocean to look at or the shore, you’re actually surrounded by all kinds of really beautiful scenery.”

People who work on old sailing ships are “kind of a special breed,” Blumberg said. “They live the life — they’re sanding, varnishing and maintaining the boat and they’re usually really enthusiastic about what they do,” she said. “They love to tell our passengers all about it. They tell people a lot about what the lifestyle is like and what sailing on the ship is like.”

Passengers can bring their wine and beer on board, and the company provides cups and napkins, and serves snacks.

Motorcoaches can park in a lot near the Argia for a nominal charge. While groups can purchase tickets for public sailings, it’s usually cheaper to schedule a two-hour private charter at a flat rate, Blumberg said.
