Mystic River Cruise!

Private, Carbon Neutral and Sailing from Downtown Mystic!


There's no substitute for a private boat tour!

I only book private groups up to a maximum of 6 people.

Mystic is a great destination that continues to grow more popular. Step off the sidewalk and get away from the crowds. As your captain, I'll guide your friends and family right from downtown! 

Feel free to bring refreshments or Flounder’s berth at Schooner Warf provides several great takeout options, including Li's Bakery, Karma Kitchen, Mystic Oysters (hot lobster roll!) and the Engine Room.

Book Now!

Walkups are welcome and tours can be scheduled with an hour’s notice.

Mystic River Attractions

Your Trip Starts at Schooner Warf in Sight of the Seaport and drawbridge!

Mystic Draw Bridge

Sometimes it’s a tight squeeze sailing under the bridge but it’s always a highlight of the trip!


Sunset Cruises

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!


Night Cruise

A slow ride on the Mystic river at night can be breathtakingly beautiful!



Many customers are just looking to get out on the water for a short time making the 90-120 minute tour most popular. Some groups want to spend some extra time taking a swim, seeing more secluded spots, dining at a dock in Noank, or just relaxing on the drift. Let me know what you’re looking for and we can work something out!

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
