Welcome to the Duxbury Bay Maritime School!

The Duxbury Bay Maritime School is a nonprofit organization that exists as a gateway for all to Duxbury Bay. We have educational and recreational programs for both kids and adults with the majority of our programming taking place during the summer season. Outside of scheduled programs, DBMS hosts educational speaker series, social engagements and other events to connect with the Duxbury community and beyond. We hope whatever brings you to the William P. Ellison Campus leaves you with a lasting impression of the valuable natural resource that is Duxbury Bay.

Let the tallying of the Mums begin!

THANK YOU for your support of the DBMS High School Rowing Mums Fundraiser! The team has begun their work with  Sunshine Gardens to order, organize and prepare for delivery of these massive and magnificent mums. We look forward to sharing the outcome of this fundraising effort soon!
