Qué vas a hacer

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 set out from Pickering Wharf Marina in downtown Salem, motor out a short distance, and then call for volunteers to help raise the sails. Once the sails are up, 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 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!

Michael

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 the University of Pennsylvania 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.

Dónde vas a estar

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!

Más consejos

The trip is weather dependent — we will not sail if steady rain, high winds, or thick fog are expected. Call ahead if you are unsure about the weather. Dress for whatever the weather offers — you are exposed to the elements on our 1812 schooner! This is not a cruise ship or passenger ferry!
