Between bowflusters and jet drives, boating has become so easy! Imagine navigating the high seas with no GPS, no stabilizers and worst of all, no cold drinks! The Mayflower II is an exact replica of the historic schooner used by the brave British settlers who first landed on New England soil four hundred years ago. This weekend is your last chance of the season to educate yourself on the rich history of the Plymouth Plantation and learn all about the pilgrims who traveled across the Atlantic on the Mayflower. The Plymouth Plantation and Mayflower II are a great experience for the family with such an authentic feel throughout the whole village! If you're looking to mix things up a little this weekend, be sure to explore Plymouth Plantation for a guaranteed amazing time!
