What are the sleeping arrangements like?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions that we hear.
The Schooner Nathaniel Bowditch has two passenger holds below deck. Each has its own head, or bathroom, below deck so there is never a need to go up on deck in the middle of the night unless you want to check out the stars. The forward compartment or foc's'cle has three double beds, one of which could be used as a triple, a traditional bunk style cabin and a "Pullman"-style berth. There is an open skylight in the companionway and louvered doors for good airflow. The next compartment is "midships." As this is the widest part of the vessel, these are the biggest cabins. Four of the midships cabins have graduated bunks that follow the angle of the hull and therefore are "step-like." A large sky-light brings lots of air and sunshine down bel
Another spectacular adventure! Great crew, fascinating itinerary and food fit for royalty. Thanks for another memorable sail. Eileen W. Somers, CT
You are welcome to bring a sleeping bag and sleep out on deck. The captain and crew often sleep under the stars. Ask them for the best spots to stretch out your gear.
On a trip like this very little time is spent below deck in your sleeping quarters. You won't want to miss the scenery as we move along the bay! If you are looking for spot to get inside during the day, please feel free to go to the galley. There are tables and benches, books to peruse, games, and always a lot of lively talk as the galley crew prepares the day's fare.
