Enjoy a relaxing, unplugged Maine coast vacation with the captains and crew of the Schooner Mary Day
There aren’t too many places you can go these days where you can truly unplug and unwind. But an unplugged vacation on the Schooner Mary Day means no cell phones, television or internet — a digital detox vacation. If you want to “get away from it all,” we’re here to help.
We, along with our great crew, will make sure that you enjoy yourself, learn a bit about sailing, and see as much of the scenery and wildlife as possible on your beautiful Maine coast vacation. 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.
Spend your days under white canvas sails slipping silently between the hundreds of islands that make up the Maine coast archipelago. At the end of each day we’ll get ashore to explore an uninhabited island or visit a small fishing community — there are so many relaxing places to go. Clear nights are filled with gazing at a million stars overhead and the sound of the music from the main cabin. This off the beaten path vacation is one you’ll talk about for years to come.
The Mary Day is the first schooner built with passenger comfort in mind, and it’s evident in the care taken to make the spacious cabins inviting places to spend some downtime. Full headroom and windows that open to let in the fresh sea air are just a few of the creature comforts you’ll find. Our wide open decks are the perfect vantage point from which to experience the magic of the Maine coast. For a rustic vacation you’ll find the experience surprisingly agreeable.
From the galley wafts the smell of traditional hearty New England fare prepared from scratch on our wood cook stove to satisfy your seafaring appetite. This Maine getaway wouldn’t be complete without a traditional down-east lobster bake by the fire on a secluded beach which may well become the highlight of your windjammer cruise.
You’re welcome to join the crew, lend a hand raising the canvas sails, take a turn at the wheel, or just relax and let the fresh salt air carry away your every care. Leave it all behind as we sail away from the high tech hustle and bustle of life ashore for a truly relaxing Maine coast adventure aboard the schooner Mary Day. Join us!
