Now in our 17th season, FAME is the #1-rated boat in Salem and the #1-rated outdoor activity in the entire town, per TripAdvisor. Don't miss the very best of what Salem has to offer! There's more to this town than witches!FAME is a full-scale replica of a privateer schooner from the War of 1812 that captured over 20 ships! 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 the storied waters of Salem Sound and talk about the fisherman, traders, and privateers that played such a central role in the saga of Salem, of Massachusetts, and of the young United States.This is a great hands-on adventure for all ages — 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, and Marblehead.
