What you'll do

Experience true classic sailing on Salem's most elegant and unique Schooner - The Historic When and If. We board 15min prior to departure from 10 Blaney St, Salem for a 2hr Sunday Morning Sail, once off the dock we set sail and lay out a light gourmet lunch of fresh fruit, pastries and quiches which we recommend you enjoy with one of our house Bloody Marys or Mimosas. Your booking includes one drink of your choice to start out the sail!

We are a sailors through and through, so once out of the Marina we raise sail, turn off the engine and allow our guests to experience sailing in its truest form. Each trip our captain takes the best route on the water to ensure we get the best breeze while taking advantage of the beautiful sights around Salem Sound.

The When and If was originally built for General Patton and has a long history in the Salem Sound waters, we love sharing her story and historical significance so please don't hesitate to ask! We also invite any questions about how the boat operates and what it takes to sail a Schooner, and we love to share our local knowledge of Salem Sound and its surrounding waters and ocean-life.

We return to the dock two hours after leaving, and our guests will depart from the same location they from which they boarded the When and If.
