Awesome experience, awesome staff!

This schooner tour was awesome! The crew was extremely informative not to mention super friendly, which really made the experience great. It was a bit chilly the day we went out but they had hot, spiked ;), apple cider to warm us right up! It's a calm sail around the Salem sound so it was very peaceful and the views were great, especially with the fall foliage and beautiful waterfront homes. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Salem!

My girlfriends and I went on the Schooner a few days ago. Starting off we are from Florida and we did not pack good enough warm clothes to go on a boat in October. Melissa checked us in for the tour and literally gave us the clothes off of her back. She gave us three jackets to keep us warm! Everyone on the tour was extremely friendly. We were able to pull the sail up and steer the Schooner. They also had warm apple cider on board! We had a great time and I would come back and do the tour all over again.

Many of our passengers have never been sailing before, — certainly not on a traditional gaff-rigged schooner! We love showing visitors how sailing was done back in Salem's glory days. Glad you enjoyed it!
