Schooner FAME July 4 Fireworks Sail

    Improve listing Presented by

Is there a better way to kick off summer than with an evening sail and a fantastic fireworks show?

Every summer Salem celebrates the Fourth of July with a bang-up fireworks display. Fame offers a special extended evening cruise from 6:15 p.m. until the Harbormaster closes the channel, usually around 8:45 p.m.  We then return to our dock, which is a prime viewing spot for the fireworks on Derby Wharf starting at 9:15!
Join us for this annual event and enjoy:
  • A lovely extended evening sail on the Schooner Fame, an authentic, wooden schooner which personifies Salem's storied past.
  • A front-row seat to the fireworks display from our dock, a prime viewing spot.
  • A less crowded way to enjoy the celebration and no longer waiting half an hour to use a port-a-potty! 
  • A beautiful view of several Salem landmarks, lighthouses, and waterfront homes  
This cruise sells out every year, so book your ticket early and don’t be left on shore with the crowds!
Take the tiller, help raise the sails, or just sit back and watch the world glide past. It's a different world out on the water.
