Traditional New England  Fare with Windjammer Flare

Homemade and hearty, yet simple and elegant


The combination of sun, salt air, and sailing brings on big appetites and we’re well prepared to handle it.  Our galley serves generous helpings of such old-fashioned favorites as Thanksgiving turkey and all the trimmings, seafood smorgasbord with pasta parmesan, plenty of salads with fresh veggies locally sourced, clam chowder or butternut squash curry soup, buttermilk pancakes smothered with Maine blueberry sauce and Maine maple syrup. Baking is a tradition on board Mary Day with delicious baked goods such as anadama rolls, oatmeal or chocolate cookies, sour cream apple pie and of course our very own hand churned ice cream, all being an integral part of Mary Day’s elegant windjammer fare.  Balancing out all these “legal pleasures” fresh fruits are available for those dedicated waist watchers. All our food is woodstove approved, designed, crafted and served by hands and hearts filled with love. 

A Maine windjammer lobster picnic, the highlight of every cruise


The high point on every windjammer cruise, the lobster picnic takes place on a secluded shoreline beach, once again off the beaten path.  Resting on a beach enjoying every morsel with a majestic Maine windjammer as the backdrop is the pinnacle of the experience. Ok, the fresh lobsters are pretty darn good as well!  Time is the key to a perfectly cooked lobster over a fire, which allows guests the opportunity to head off for a swim, beach combing, hiking or perhaps row and explore the harbor. Not a lobster lover? No need to worry, we would never let our guests go hungry! There are plenty of other options to eat at the picnic other than our honored crustacean dinner guests.
