Mystic River Attractions
Your Trip Starts at Schooner Warf, Yards from the Schooner Alvei and in Sight of the Seaport!
The View of Alvei From Flounder’s Berth
Whether you’re looking to get away with a special someone or arranging for a larger group, Flounder is quite at home amongst the Mystic’s tall ships.
Mystic Draw Bridge
Sometimes it’s a tight squeeze sailing under the bridge but it’s always a highlight of the trip!
It’s rumored that the monks at Ender’s Island are safeguarding the Holy Grail. Of course, that’s only a rumor but no one would blame you if you mistook the sea wall for a castle. It’s a gorgeous spot and on the right day, you can catch the bag pipers playing!
Mystic River sunset cruises offer some of the most spectacular scenes you will ever see. Bring a picnic dinner and refreshments and stay through sunset!
A slow ride on the Mystic river at night can be breathtakingly beautiful!
Many customers are just looking to get out on the water making the 90-120 minute tour most popular. But some groups want to spend some extra time taking a swim, seeing more secluded spots, dining at the dock in Noank, or just relaxing on the drift. Let me know what you’re looking for and we can work out an itinerary.

Carbon Neutral River Cruise
The Mystic River abounds in natural beauty and cultural heritage and I take stewardship of these resources seriously. I have been involved in climate change policy since 1991. Even back then, sea levels were predicted to rise and now they are changing measurably. While rising waters may lift all boats, not all Mystic’s treasures are so adaptable.
I recently converted Flounder to run on pure biodiesel, giving her a carbon footprint unmatched even by electric boats. In doing so, I’m hoping to raise awareness of the viability of alternative fuels and set a path that other boaters may follow. If you have never heard of Biodiesel, here are a few important facts:
- It is approved for use by major engine manufacturers, like Cummins and Caterpillar
- And it is slated to make up half of Connecticut’s home heating oil market by 2035
