About the Fame Sail

Join us for a sail on our top-rated replica of the 1812 privateer Fame, one of Salem’s premier activities. You can be as hands-on as you wish — help raise the sails or just enjoy your time on the water.

This tour combines the beautiful sights of a sailing trip in Salem, the fun of helping the crew with the sails, and the educational experience of learning about the history of the vessel and the War of 1812. The crew is knowledgeable and friendly, and they share interesting facts with a bit of humor.

Whether you’re a visitor to Salem, a local, a history buff, or a sailing enthusiast, you can’t miss this amazing experience.

What to Bring

  • Sensible shoes, sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses are always a good idea. It’s cooler on the water, so you may want to bring a jacket or sweatshirt.
  • Beer, wine, soft drinks, and snacks are available for purchase. No coolers or BYOB allowed — sorry!
