Schooner Sail from Salem
Schooner Sailing Tours from Salem MA
Welcome aboard a beautiful Schooner sail on the Salem Sound on a replica of a successful privateer from the War of 1812. The original schooner was a fast "Chebacco" fishing schooner reborn as a privateer when war broke out in the summer of 1812. She took at least 21 prizes before being wrecked in the Bay of Fundy in 1814. Now you can relive the excitement of your own schooner sail from Salem!
The new Schooner is a full-scale replica of this once famous privateer ship. Framed and planked of white oak and trunnel-fastened in the traditional manner, the new schooner was launched in 2003.
There are no refunds. All sales are final.

You will learn about the fishermen, pirates, privateers, traders and men of war who shaped the North Shore. Hear about the fishing trade that prompted Cape Ann's first European settlements...the brave little schooners of George Washington's fleet...the East India trade that made Salem rich...and, of course, the privateers of the Revolution and the War of 1812.
New Englander weather forecasts have their uses but are not entirely reliable. Trips are not based solely on the forecast. The captain decides whether or not to sail very close to departure time. Thunderstorms, thick fog, steady rain, and/or winds in excess of 25 knots may cause a trip to be cancelled.
WHAT TO BRING
It's cooler out on the water, so bring a sweatshirt or windbreaker. High heels or dress shoes will be uncomfortable and potentially unsafe - so sneakers, sandals, or boat shoes are recommended. Cameras, sunglasses and sunscreen are also good ideas.
Snacks, soft drinks, beer and wine are sold on board, and passengers are welcome to bring their own food and soft drinks. However, coolers and alcoholic beverages may NOT be brought aboard.
There is a restroom on board. It is below decks, accessed by descending a short ladder, so persons with limited mobility may wish to visit a restroom ashore before coming aboard.
Seasickness is rarely a problem on beamy schooners operating in protected waters close to shore. Nobody has ever gotten sick during one of the Salem Sound cruises. However, those prone to motion sickness may wish to take some Dramamine half an hour before sailing.
Hotel pick up is not included. Please reserve online, or call us toll-free at 888-741-3994.
