The Best Way to Experience A Maine Coast Vacation Aboard the Schooner Mary Day
You haven’t really seen the Maine coast until you have seen it from the deck of a windjammer, immersed in the sights and sounds of the sea. It is an experience you’ll never forget‚ bald eagles soar overhead, seals bask on the ledges, and lighthouses shine their beacons as we wind our way through hundreds of rocky, spruce-covered islands.
Every day is an adventure!
With no set itinerary, we take our cues from the weather and sea conditions, some days sailing in the shelter of islands, others on the open ocean. We go where the wind blows us but always anchor in a snug harbor for the night‚ at an offshore island, or quaint Down East village.
When we welcome you aboard the Mary Day we feel as though we’re welcoming you to our family. With lots of time to get to know each other while we sail the coast of Maine, we find that friendships seem to form much quickly than they do on land. Our guests tell us the friendships they develop with the captains and crew are one of the biggest reasons they return year after year for another Maine getaway.
Comfortable accommodations for your coastal Maine vacation.
Our comfortable cabins are restful after a day spent sailing the Maine coast. They have plenty of headroom, are easily accessible from the deck, and each has a window and skylight that open to let in plenty of fresh air and sunshine.
Enjoy Down East fare & a lobster bake on the beach.
Meals are prepared on our wood cook stove using local ingredients and served family style. There is always a lobster bake on the beach, over a wood fire‚ no Maine coast vacation would be complete without one! After dinner, warm yourself by the wood stove in our comfortable main cabin and listen to guitar or the parlor organ.
Unplug and get off the beaten path with us for the Maine coast vacation of your life aboard the Schooner Mary Day!
