90 Minute Salem Sound Tour
Migratory birds, such as warblers and other songbirds fly overhead. Herons, terns, cormorants, Eider ducks, and even puffins have been spotted. The rocky coasts and many small barrier islands are sunny spots for harbor seals and turtles.
The tide pools are teaming with little creatures such as crustaceans and sea urchins. The waters below shelter beds of native flowering seagrass, lobsters, bivalves, and are home to flounder, mackerel, striped sea bass, bluefins. Even the endangered North Atlantic Right Whale has been seen.

The world will grow tranquil as we gently make our way out into the waters protected by our barrier islands. You will have a 360-degree view as the Endeavour is an open air catamaran.
You will get a scenic view of all the towns that embrace Salem Sound, stretching from Marblehead, through Salem and Beverly, to Manchester-by-the-Sea. We'll take you past Bakerís Island, where you will glimpse some of the summer cottages there, and ĎPa Bakerí, the nearly 200 year-old lighthouse.
Bring along a pair of binoculars as we regularly see wildlife such as migratory birds and seals feeding or sunning on the rocks. The nearly 50 miles of ever-enchanting rocky coastline is mesmerizing.
