About the July 4 Sail
Celebrate our favorite holiday with us! Each July 4, Fame celebrates the nation’s birthday (and the taking of her first prizes off New Brunswick in 1812) with an extended cruise followed by a front-row seat for Salem’s fireworks display!
The fireworks are set off on Derby Wharf, just 100 yards from Fame’s dock, so we have an unbeatable view. It’s a magical evening and the best way to celebrate July 4.
This cruise sells out every year, so plan ahead. No discounts are available for this trip. Cruise departs at 7 p.m. (allow extra time for parking!), and the fireworks generally end around 9:45 p.m.
Don’t miss out on the best view of the fireworks in all of Salem!
What to Bring
- Sensible shoes, sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses are recommended. It’s cooler on the water, so you may also want to bring a jacket or sweatshirt.
- Beer, wine, soft drinks, and snacks are available for purchase. No coolers or BYOB on board — sorry!
