  • Captain and two of the employees were very courteous and professional with everyone on the boat. Husband got to help with pulling up the sail curtains. They serve us hot cider and beer upon request...

  • Had a relaxing, fun time aboard with perfect weather. The crew and captain were friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. The ship is beautiful—and was very clean. My parents and I enjoyed the experience and would recommend it! Good value, too. Thanks for a great sail!
  • This was such an amazing experience! We had so much fun! The ship was so nice, the crew was astounding, and you can help with the sails and steering the ship of you want to! They have drinks and snacks too. This was such a wonderful experience, i would do it again if i had time :) Highly recommend 100%
  • My boyfriend and I took a sunset cruise on the Schooner FAME a week ago, and it was so much fun that I'm ready to go again! The captain and crew are fun and knowledgeable, and the area they sail in is gorgeous. Whether you're a tourist taking in the sights in Salem, or a local looking for something a little different to do, I highly recommend setting sail on this beautiful craft.
  • AWESOME BOAT TOUR! Was a beautiful day for sailing and the Schooner Fame experience was really nice for a journey on the water. Bought myself a colorful t shirt also. Had a coke & rum on board. Michael Rutstein the owner really knows his history. Firing of the cannon was fun to experience. Even got to raise the sails with the crew. Worth EVERY PENNY!
  • This was the highlight of our visit to the Salem area. The crew were knowledgeable and enthusiastic about sailing and the history of the vessel. We went sailing on such a windy day, it was awesome! They were great with my kids and I want to give a special shout out to the young woman working that put my 7 year old daughter at ease several times. You were amazing! Thank you!
