The salt air,the raising of the sails, and the history lesson about The War of 1812

The crew and the scenery

Jun 23, 2014 Carol MA, United States

Fantastic crew and a great hands on experience!

If you have the opportunity to sail, by all means do it!

Oct 26, 2013 J Massachusetts, United States

Beautiful, brisk, Fall day to be on the water. Skipper Mike and crew were personable, professional, and knowledgeable about local Salem history, which added interest and value to this great experience.

Saw a number of passengers grow very chilled because they didn't bring extra layers. Fortunately for them, Fame had some blankets~dress as if you were out camping, almost 2 hours on the water is quite a long time to be exposed.

The beauty and tranquility of being out on the water on a glorious fall day.
