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.

 Updates: Fall 2020 Programs

DBMS intends to run several offerings this fall for children and adults. At this time, we are awaiting confirmation on the proposed plans for middle school, high school and college age students to ensure our programming compliments the academic schedules of our youth participants and several members of our younger staff. Adult programming will continue to run as it has over the summer with minor scheduling changes. We appreciate your patience and understanding while we continue to finalize details and encourage you to sign up for announcements.
