Mystic Seaport’s Nautical Nightmares

Story by Carli LoPresto, Staff Writer

Mystic Seaport is hosting a Nautical Nightmares event through October 27th. Each tour lasts around one hour, starting at 6:00pm and ending at 10:00pm. The cost for members of the Seaport is $24 and for non-members $28.

Nautical Nightmares is a theatrical tour. As you make your way through the museum there are different actors that depict references from the sinister side of Irish folklore.

The one hour tour is 1/3-1/2 mile of walking on cobblestone, wood planking, grass, gravel, and stairs. Nautical Nightmares occurs in all weather conditions. The tour will start from the Sanger Visitors Reception Center. This event is for ages 12 and older, so if you’re under 12 then you are not recommended to attend the event. Pre-registration is encouraged because the tours fill very quickly.
