Setting — The second facility to port after the railroad bridge, just north of Ft. Rachel, is the intimate and appealing John J. Carija & Sons marina. The slips peel out from a single dock that parallels the river bank. Large stone blocks bulkhead the shoreline and hold back a pleasant strip of grass, flowers and foliage. Classic, shingled buildings complete the traditional New England atmosphere.

Marina Notes — Not intended to be a full service marina. Friendly, neat and clean, J.I.C. offers good, sturdy docks, with a useful complement of services, in a very, very convenient location with a most pleasant ambiance. Transients welcomed. Very nice head. Could easily be that elusive "private marina" in Mystic, a stone's throw from downtown. The surrounding streets - particularly High Street, West Mystic Ave, and Prospect St. -- are lined with houses dating from the late 18thC, including many belonging to sea captains. Pick up a walking tour from the Mystic River Historical Society. Internet connection is available at both the Mystic Visitor's Center in the old Amtrak depot and at the Mystic-Noank Library -- which is housed in an interesting 1894 neo-Romanesque building.

Notable — Capt. Daniel Packer Restaurant is across the street and more restaurants are a short walk away. Downtown Mystic is just a few blocks north. Many services, shops, and some eateries can be found on Main Street on both sides of the rather unique bascule bridge. Famous Mystic Seaport is less than a mile walk or dinghy ride (their dock is at the north gate) and Mystic Aquarium is a little under two miles. Or take the trolley, which will also stop Downtown, at the Amtrak station, Mistick Village, McQuade's Supermarket and West Marine. The Mystic Art Association is on the way to the Mystic hub.
