Какво ще правите

Haul up the sails! Take the tiller! Or just chill out with a local craft beer or Deacon Stormy while our historic schooner slides through Salem Sound past lighthouses, forts, and waterfront homes. The captain and crew will explain the significance of the FAME, privateering, and the War of 1812. The firing of the cannon is always a highlight!

We'll motor out from Pickering Wharf in downtown Salem and call for volunteers to help raise the sails. Depending on the wind, we may shape a course toward Beverly... or Marblehead... or head straight out toward the islands!

Our interactive crew point out landmarks, explain the operation of the schooner, and mix drinks with equal facility.

The sails last roughly an hour and forty minutes. When we return to Pickering Wharf, you're right in the heart of downtown Salem — perfectly placed for a meal, a drink, or a stroll!

Note:

We will not sail if steady rain, high winds, or thick fog are expected; you will be refunded. Message us if you are unsure about the forecast. Dress for the weather — you are exposed to the elements on our 1812 schooner!

This trip is NOT appropriate for infants or toddlers. But once kids are 4-5 years old, they really enjoy it!

The schooner is certified for 49 passengers plus crew, but since 2021 we are sailing at 60% capacity, which means there will be a maximum of 29 guests on your sail.

I've been sailing for four decades, was hands-on with the building of our traditional wooden schooner in 2003, and recently spent three winters cruising the Eastern Caribbean. When I'm working, I'm sailing... and when I'm playing, I'm sailing! I am equally passionate about history, having written two books about privateering and the War of 1812. I've presented at nearly a hundred events, symposiums, and conferences. Recently, I was named Chair of Salem's Port Authority, tasked with remaking Salem's waterfront for the next century.

The schooner sails roughly 300 times each season, and I am not able to be the captain on every trip, but our reviews speak to the excellence of ALL our captains and crew members!

We'll be sailing on the historic waters of Salem Sound. Every trip is different, since we shape our course to take advantage of the wind that day. Sometimes we sail toward Beverly... sometimes toward Marblehead... sometimes straight out toward the islands!

It was a great experience for the whole family. We all had the opportunity to hoist the sails & my 6 year old loved being able to help. The weather was kind to us & it made for a super relaxing sailing experience. The crew was very friendly, knowledgeable, & approachable. I would recommend this & do this again if I find myself back in Salem/Boston.

The view of the coast was beautiful and the drinks were great! snacks are on the light side but affordable in a pinch. The spiked cider was great for a cold fall day! Mike is a fun captain and helps you with steering the rudder and tacking sail etc., and his wife is just as great, teaching you how to manage the sails and is a delight! She even leant me his spare windbreaker when my jacket and scarf/gloves ended up being a little thin😅 We had a great time with the crew of the Fame💜

The experience was great. The ocean is beautiful and it was fun to learn some history of the area as well as the boat! Mike made the sailing fun, definitely recommend.

Best part of our vacation was riding the schooner. Michael was informative and friendly, as well as the staff. They even served hot apple cider with fireball whiskey to keep us warm on a cool day. Fire in the Hole!!

This was a great Salem experience! Something different and interesting. I do wish that everyone got a chance to raise the sail. Would definitely book again.

We had a great time on the fame of Salem. The captain and crew were very friendly and engaging. We made lots of new friends on the boat and enjoyed some delicious warm apple cider. We can’t wait for next year!
