Journey of Mayflower II

Journey of the Mayflower II interactiveMore than 50 years ago, a dream became a reality as Mayflower II sailed from Brixham, England to Plymouth, Massachusetts. There were no motors nor chase boats; only wind, sails and brave sailors successfully sailed this full-scale reproduction of the original Mayflower that brought the Pilgrims to New England in 1620.

This website is dedicated to those daring souls who believed in this dream and made it a reality. Plimoth Plantation invites you to explore this site with the same sense of adventure that fueled the Pilgrims and the 1957 crew, as they made their famous transatlantic journeys.  Guided by the 1957 ships’ log, we have recreated the sailors’ historic voyage using anecdotes and artifacts, as well as vintage and contemporary video clips, to illustrate the unique endeavor of the very special crew of Mayflower II
