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.

Thank You!

Thank you to all our speakers and attendees that made 2023 one of the best years yet for our Speaker Series. We learned so much from the seminars and discussions that followed. So many important conversations unfolded from these free talks and we hope to continue stimulating them in 2024.
