    Daytrippers: The Schooner Argia
    Daytrippers visits Mystic's scenic landscape and climbs aboard the Schooner Argia. This modern replica of a 19th century sailing schooner is docked near the quaint downtown and provides tourists a chance to see the coast from onboard a ship.  Argia is a replica of a Chesapeake Bay cargo ship that would have carried tobacco or lumber.  Many passengers come from the Mystic Seaport and get to rest their feet and feel the wind as they see the historic buildings from the water.  "A boat view of the coastal line, it's pretty interesting," says Mike Johnson from Pennsylvania.  "You can see more than driving or walking."  Captain Isaac Henry, who has worked aboard the Argia for about a year, agrees:   "It's nice that they can see the two different perspectives from walking through versus the waterside."  Historic ships, such as the Charles W. Morgan and the Sabino, are easily visible from up on deck.
