Sailing Day Trips in Salem, MA
Experience Salem from the water aboard Friendship Sloop Wenonah.
Day sails are a great opportunity to see the sights that Salem has to offer. We set off from Pickering Wharf Marina and from there, set the right amount of sail for the conditions and head to one of a few places.
The bay and Salem Sound are well protected, so it’s almost always a great time for sailing in the summer. We’ll take a tour of the town and see the mansions hidden in the coves and beaches best seen from the water. The whole area of Salem and the North Shore are rich in history, and you can see it from the sea.
We will cruise through a harbor full boats either on their protected moorings or underway for a day of fun on the water, it is truly a sight to behold. With the smell of fresh sea breeze and the sound of waves breaking against the shore, you will glide perfectly along the coast lined with historic buildings and landmarks.
There are also some very picturesque lighthouses to see. Daytime also provides a great opportunity to see some wildlife. There are all sorts of migratory and ocean birds, as well as marine mammals like whales and seals. If we’re lucky we might even get a visit from a pod of dolphins.
Pack a lunch and make a day of it! When you come out with Sunset Sail Salem, it’s your boat! We can be out for as long as you like, stopping to swim, or sailing by Baker’s Island Light, Eagle Island and Marblehead.
Stay into the evening and catch a beautiful Salem sunset.
