Haul up the sails! Take the tiller! Or just chill out with a Rum Punch 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-five 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. Call ahead 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 during 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 40 years now, 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 minored in history at Penn and later written two books about privateering and the War of 1812. I've presented at nearly one 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.

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!

This was a great experience! Salem is typically known for being witch city, but it also has a rich maritime history that I knew next to nothing about. Michael, Justin, and Jonah were excellent guides, and very knowledgable about not just the vessel Fame, but about the sailing history of Salem, the war of 1812, privateering, and more. Hats off to Justin, especially, for answering all my questions. The weather was also absolutely glorious, and it was frankly a perfect day for sailing. Overall, I was really happy with this experience; it's something was so unique to do in Salem, and should definitely be on your list!

Michael and his crew were amazing hosts and very knowledgeable about the area and local history. Loved that the experience was interactive and it was so neat getting a behind the scenes look at how the ship was built. Also we lucked out with beautiful weather!

What a cool experience, probably the best thing we did the entire time we were in Salem. Using the bathroom on the ship was hard, but not unmanageable, the toilet seat just felt really high. Overall, incredible time, if you're going to be in Salem and don't schedule this, you're definitely missing out.

When they cut the motor on the Fame you get get the sense of whisking off into the 18th Century. As you sail around on this old Schooner, you can understand the draw that so many he’s to the sea. Michael and his crew keep you in good spirits as you enjoy dark and stormies on the sea. You can tell these folx love what they do and that makes it so fun.
