To Get Here
Use US chart #13214 and pay strict attention to the buoys. The channel is narrow and twisting; shoals abound just outside the channel.
The Mystic River Railroad Bridge will open on call, unless a train is expected. The Mystic River Bascule Bridge (Route 1) opens at 20 minutes before each hour from 7:40 a.m. until 6:40 p.m. The Bascule Bridge opens on call prior to 7:40 a.m. and after 6:40 p.m. Both bridges monitor radio channels 9 and 13.
Check the Predicted Tides for Mystic Seaport. CAUTION: THE FOLLOWING TIDE PREDICTIONS SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR NAVIGATION as follow-up tide measurements have not been done in Noank for many years leading to the possibility of inaccuracies in the tidal offsets in height and time with respect to tides in New London.
