Setting — The last marina to port (after the railroad bridge but before the bascule bridge), Mystic Downtown Marina is the closest facility to the business district of Mystic. This nicely executed and well-groomed dockage-only facility is a fairly recent, and most welcome, addition to the Mystic marina scene. Its slips and alongside docks are near and around a small, attractively landscaped waterfront park. "Umbrellaed" picnic tables with views of the river and pots of flowers complete the scene. A handsomely renovated former factory flanks the northern end.

Marina Notes — Managed and operated by Yacht Services of Mystic. YSM is also the New England distributor for Duffy Electric Boats, operator of Mystic River Tours (using Duffys) - 1.5 hrs., every hour starting at 1pm weekdays, 10am weekend, a yacht charter agency (bareboat or captained, 34-42 ft.), a yacht brokerage, and a yacht manager -- all located at the marina. Also a Certified Teaching Facility of the American Sailing Association. Mystic Jitney - 40 foot motorsailing tours. Note: there is a "No Pets" policy. Internet access is at the nearby Mystic Visitors' Association in the restored depot, and at the library.

Notable — Downtown Mystic's restaurants, shops, galleries and attractions are a stone's throw away. Dozens of late 18thC and early 19thC houses line nearby streets (walking guide at Mystic Historical Society). Mystic Seaport is less than a mile north (the Seaport maintains a free dinghy dock at the north gate). The Mystic Aquarium's about a mile farther, as is Olde Mistick Village -- a 60 shop mall that is so nicely done as an early 19thC village that a visit might even appeal to committed non-shoppers. The Mystic Trolley connects the marinas with all the area attractions, shops and services.
