Overview
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 our 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.

My husband and I visited Salem for a long weekend, to get ready for Halloween. But the historical parts are what drew us and the chance to go on the Fame ended up as the best part. History, a wonderful captain and crew, and an opportunity to aid in sailing? This made our trip!

Captain Ed was a great storyteller and historian. The crew was very friendly and my son had multiple opportunities to help "steer" the boat and to raise the sails. It was a very enjoyable experience, and I would do it again!

The staff of the Fame make something that's already great even better. It truly is a treat to get out on the water around Salem & Beverly, and the crew on the Fame add to that with a great vibe, some history, & hot cider in October. I will gladly recommend this trip to friends
