This was our first trip to Salem and we wanted to plan activities that everyone would enjoy. This was THE highlight of the trip. The weather was perfect for sailing on an autumn afternoon. The captain and crew were very friendly and knowledgeable. We were also excited at the opportunity to assist in raising the sails as we left the dock area. This trip was one that created memories that will last for a very long time. I'm still smiling!

Wonderful, absolutely memorable and we'll do it again. We live in Salem, and this is now one of our top favorite things to do, along with the Peabody Essex Museum. Captain was fantastic, really informative with his commentary. Relaxed and enjoyable. It was as fun for the older people in our group as for our 4 year old. Really captured being under sail in a privateer. We were really impressed and amazed by the obvious passion for sailing and history that inspired these folks to commission this replica ship to be designed and built from scratch.This is a real gem, tourists should make this a priority when in Salem. We'll definitely take out of town friends on the Fame.

The Schooner Fame crew were great. Professional, friendly, outgoing and interacted very well with all the passengers. THe ship itself was very well maintained, clean and comfortable. We had the perfect day for a sail. Sunny, warm but not humid with a light breeze over the harbor. The Captain, Jeremy picked a great route that took us by Marblehead harbor and towards ghe many islands and lighthouses in Salem Sound. We left the ship wishing we could stay on as crew! My 9 year old daughter had never been sailing and afterwards told my fiance and I she had the best time. We will be sailing with them again and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a fun cruise.

This was a great trip! Sailing on a replica of a privateer schooner was a unique experience. The captain/owner was very knowledgeable about the history of the original vessel, as was his crew. And passengers got to raise and lower the sails. Water and snacks are sold on board, and they do sell T-shirts and hats afterwards. The whole trip was about an hour and 45 minutes long, and it was really nice being out in the harbor alongside all the other smaller boats, with the wind rippling the sails.

Sailing on FAME out of Salem Harbor on Sunday afternoon was terrific fun and a great experience! FAME is a beautiful boat, solidly built and comfortable. The Captain and crew are knowledgeable, welcoming and friendly! Even better, they encourage passengers to hoist sails and take a turn at the helm! Great fun! I'd do it again in a minute!
