You'll start at
86 Wharf St
86 Wharf St, Salem, MA 01970, USA"86 Wharf St" is a fictional address, but will get you close to our ticket booth in front of FINZ. Traffic and parking are challenging on weekends, and that goes TRIPLE for October! Allow extra time! No-shows will not receive a refund. We will rebook you if we can, but that's not always possible!

    My husband and I visited Salem for a long weekend, to get ready for Halloween. But the historical parts are what drew us and the chance to go on the Fame ended up as the best part. History, a wonderful captain and crew, and an opportunity to aid in sailing? This made our trip!

    Captain Ed was a great storyteller and historian. The crew was very friendly and my son had multiple opportunities to help "steer" the boat and to raise the sails. It was a very enjoyable experience, and I would do it again!

    My first time on a schooner and it was a great experience with Mike and his crew. Next time in Salem I plan to book another tour on the Fame.
