“HOMEWARD BOUND! The Massachusetts State Police Marine Unit had a very special mission today.

MSP boat Marine 9 escorted the Mayflower II from Massachusetts Maritime Academy, where the ship was docked over the weekend, to her home berth at Pilgrim Memorial State Park in Plymouth. The trip was the final leg of Mayflower II’s journey home after undergoing a three-year, $11.2 million restoration in Mystic, Connecticut.

The 64-year-old vessel is a replica of the ship that brought the Pilgrims to America 400 years ago this December.

It was an honor to escort this remarkable symbol of the brave men, women, and children who set foot on our shores four centuries ago and helped plant the seeds of democracy in what would become this great country.”-Massachusetts State Police.
