Sail the Schooner Fame

This entry was posted on Jun 27 2011

Everyone knows there is more to Salem than the witch trials of 1692.  A rich maritime history helped establish our town as an early hub of the New World.  We’re fotunate that we can experience a taste of that storied past in many ways including a sail aboard the Schooner Fame.

A replica of an 1812 wooden Chebacco schooner, Fame departs from Pickering Wharf Marina for cruises of historic Salem Sound at 2:00, 4:00 and 6:00 pm daily from Memorial Day through Halloween.  Aboard this beautiful vessel exploring the local harbor and beyond you’ll hear about her role in Salem’s fishing and privateering history.  It’s an informative and fun adventure for kids and grandparents, families and couples, landlubbers and salty dogs.  You can even volunteer to help hoist her stately sails.

Receive $3 off your Schooner Fame tour when you present your Salem Witch Museum sticker.  Refreshments and additional merchandise are available on board.
