The Mystic Whaler is a faithful reproduction of a late 19th century tall ship, offering everything from sailing vacations (2-, 3- and 5-day cruises) to shorter day trips (the Lobster Dinner Cruise, Sunday Brunch, and Sunset Cruises among them.) Its home port is New London, CT – very convenient for travelers coming from any Northeast Corridor location via Amtrak, as the dock is within walking distance of the New London train station, or for those coming from Long Island (Cross Sound Ferry runs from Orient Point on Long Island’s North Fork.)
The Mystic Whaler is a big schooner (110’), so don’t expect to be alone on any trip, but the crowd, the captain and the crew get consistently great reviews. It has been chosen as the Editor’s Choice for a Connecticut Coastal Cruise by Yankee Magazine, and the Best Coastal Cruise by Connecticut Magazine.
