Schooner Fame of Salem

Schooner Fame of Salem

Wharf Street | Salem, MA 01970


FAME is a full-scale replica of a privateer schooner that sailed from Salem during the War of 1812.

We offer two-hour cruises on Salem Sound, where pirates, privateers, East Indiamen and men of war have been making history for 400 years.

FAME sails up to four times daily (weather permitting) from Memorial Day through September and then weekends only through Halloween from PICKERING WHARF MARINA in downtown Salem.

The original FAME was one of the first American privateers to get to sea and one of the first to send in a captured vessel. She was a familiar sight in Maine waters, taking at least 21 prizes in the waters off Maine, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick before being lost in the Bay of Fundy in 1814.
