Privateer Schooner Sailing Tour in Salem Sound

Location Salem, Massachusetts, USA
$45.46
This is an experience gift voucher. The recipient will book the experience after they redeem the gift voucher.
Overview
FAME is annually the #1-rated boat in Salem and the #1 outdoor activity in the entire town, per TripAdvisor. Don't miss the very best of what Salem has to offer! There's more to our town than witches!

FAME is a full-scale replica of a privateer schooner from the War of 1812 that captured over 20 prizes! We sail up to five times a day between May and October from Pickering Wharf Marina in downtown Salem.

On board our traditional gaff-rigged schooner, you'll get a chance to raise the sails and even steer the boat as we sail Salem Sound and talk about the fisherman, traders, and privateers that played such a central role in the saga of Salem, and of the young United States.

This is a great hands-on adventure — but you can also just sit back and enjoy a beverage and take it all in as we cruise past the historic forts and lighthouses of Salem, Beverly, & Marblehead.

Note: although the captain & crew have plenty to tell you, this is NOT a narrated tour! No children under five allowed.
