Climb aboard the veteran training ship JOSEPH CONRAD and 1908 steamboat SABINO at Mystic Seaport.

Climb aboard another era.

Even the most confirmed landlubbers will be transformed into savvy sea dogs after boarding one of the many historic vessels at Mystic Seaport. From the world’s sole surviving wooden whaleship, the Charles W. Morgan, to the last example of early 20th-century New England fishing vessels, the L.A. Dunton, these vessels offer a glimpse of long-past seafaring days.

And you can do a lot more than just look. Take a cruise along the Mystic River aboard our 1908 wooden, coal-fired steamboat Sabino. Help set a sail onboard the full-rigged 1882 training ship Joseph ConradĀ and participate in our ever-popular Dead Horse Ceremony. Find yourself at Brilliant’s helm for a hands-on sailing experience aboard a classic yacht.

The watercraft collection at Mystic Seaport is the largest of its kind in the United StatesĀ and includes four National Historic Landmark vessels: the Morgan, the Dunton, the Sabino and the Emma C. Berry. Come see and climb aboard our collection of historic vessels that span both time and culture.
