What’s the point of living in an apartment near Salem Harbor if you never get out to the waterfront? Rather than wait for a chance, take the reins and reserve a spot on the Schooner Fame, a perfect way to enjoy the beauty of the harbor.
The Schooner Fame cruises bring back the tradition of sailors and rum, and as a replica of a privateer schooner from the War of 1812, it really feels like a throwback in history. Sing the old songs of the sailors who embarked on quests for freedom, and dance to the hornpipes and genuine era music of the times. All the while, you’ll imbibe contemporary beverages, with rum, Madiera, and port samples available for a nominal fee.
Tickets for the Rum and Revolution cruises on August 10 and 31 are $30 per person and are available online for purchase. You can also reserve private charters and join in the schooner camp to learn more about sailing the old ships.
Whether you’re a history buff or you just enjoy sailing, your apartment near Salem Harbor gives you easy access to activities you can enjoy. Reserve a ride on the Schooner Fame, and spend some time on the water!
