If you like sailing this is a must do. Captain Mike creates an environment that allows you get involved and brings you back to a time when privateers sailed the seas. Great rime!

We sailed this past Saturday and it was wonderful. The crew was so attentive and friendly, the sites were awesome and the history of the ship was very interesting. We even got to help raise the sails on the way out. Strongly recommend you make this part of your "must do" list if you are visiting Salem

It was a perfect start to our weekend in Salem. Thanks go to all of the crew for making us feel comfortable on the schooner, and giving us information about the history of the schooner and the surrounding area.

Wonderful experience during Halloween weekend, good to get off land and just enjoy the sea! FAME is immaculately built, the story telling and history was very cool. They invited us to steer, set the sails, and they even shot from their little shotgun canon. Twas a fun experience. Me and my lady are from out of town and we like outdoorsy stuff so this was a nice alternative to the standard hikes etc. They serve drinks and snacks, nothing crazy or special. I bought one of their sailor-originated cocktails, it was decent. I pounded a pint next door from where they docked right before the ride, so my experience was enhanced! I recommend it! haha Anyway, a nice alternative to the Salem tours and shopping etc. Good times!

Halloween Weekend visit to Salem

This was definitely one of the highlights of our Halloween weekend! What great fun! My family and I have been to Salem before and this time we decided to do something a little different. Capt. Mike and crew were awesome. Capt. Mike was super informative and knowledgable and the crew let my brother and others help out setting up the sails. They definitely took the time to make this sailing experience memorable. The spiked cider and wine was a plus! and blankets were made available to beat the chilly October wind. Thanks for everything guys!

Fabulous time when the male of our party got to raise the sails and the birthday girl in our group got to steer the vessel then have a small cannon shot in her honor. Beautiful weather--beautiful sea and even saw a seal. Very informative and friendly crew who interacted with everyone on board. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! We WILL do it again

Had a great time on the boat. Helped raise the sails and sail it. The Captain and crew very friendly and informative. They were very accommodating. If you enjoy the water this is a great way to spend some time on it. A worth while experience.
