New England Boating & Fishing
Destination Salem, MA
The historic seaport of Salem, on the North Shore of Massachusetts, is best known as the site of the infamous “witch trials” of the late 1600’s, but boaters will find a lot more to love about the city than its past.
Upon entering the harbor from Salem Sound, you’ll see Winter Island to starboard. The island, once home to a military installation, is now a marine recreational park featuring seasonal dinghy and rack storage, an excellent all-tide boat ramp, RV and tent camping, scenic picnic areas, and the Fort Pickering Lighthouse.
Next to the powerplant is the Salem Harbor ferry terminal and dock, providing high-speed shuttle service to and from Boston Harbor. The dock also acommodates small cruise ships and other commercial vessels.
