Tips to Help
Plan Your Trip to the Coast of Maine

Packing Tips

  • soft-sided luggage

  • comfort clothes

  • barebone essential items 

  • adult beverage of choice

  • and a sense of adventure

Windjamming is all about ease, simplicity, and leaving all your cares behind. There is no room for extra clutter. Storage space is limited so bringing just the essentials is key. Let the wind and sun be your hairdryer, no need for fancy wear - it's time for comfort and relaxation. Each cabin has an outlet for charging cell phones and CPAP machines. No need for any other appliances as electricity is provided thru a battery bank. Your bed will be made upon your arrival with towels provided. Delicious meals made from hands and heart will be delicately crafted and served, with the exception of dinner on boarding night. Bring your favorite adult beverage of choice to enjoy with a sunset. The ice chest will be waiting. Let us take care of the itinerary. Travel lightly, carefree, and allow yourself the time to just relax and enjoy your time on Mary Day.

Travel Tips

  •  Boston, MA  to Camden, ME -  4 hrs

  •  Portland, ME to Camden, ME -  2 hrs

  •  Bangor, ME to Camden, ME -  2 hrs

  •  Manchester, NH to Camden, ME - 3 hrs

When planning your travel arrangements, be sure to factor in summer traffic in Maine. Boarding starts at 4pm and guests trickle in all evening long. No need to rush as the first night is spent at the dock. Take time to enjoy the travels to Maine and explore Camden. Free parking is available.  Mary Day returns to the dock on the last day of each trip by 11am, again allowing you travel time to leisurely return home. Don't rush away all the work you just put in to relax while on your windjammer trip. Re-enter the world when you're ready. Be sure to factor in time to travel to the airports on your return trip.

And of course, each day will be started with a homecooked breakfast. What a great way to add on to your Mary Day experience.
