Sail on the Schooner Fame

Come for a sail on FAME, a full-scale replica of one of the first American privateers to get to sea during the War of 1812. FAME was also arguably the first privateer to send in a captured vessel. She seized some 21 prizes in the waters off Maine, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick before being lost in the Bay of Fundy in 1814. Launched in June, 2003 from the H. A. Burnham Boatyard in Essex, MA, our new FAME takes the paying public for cruises on Salem Sound, where pirates, privateers, East Indiamen and men of war have been making history for 400 years. FAME sails up to three times daily from Memorial Day through September and then weekends only through Halloween from Pickering Wharf Marina in downtown Salem.

 
Special Instructions:
LIMITED AVAILABILITY. The ticket booth will open at 10:30 AM and we will distribute tickets to first 30 people present in line: first come, first served, one ticket per person, no saving places, no reservations, no exceptions. This trip fills up every year.
