In a groundbreaking settlement with Footprint Power on its proposed natural gas facility in Salem, MA, the plant developers agreed to emissions limits and a future shutdown date to comply with Massachusetts mandates.
Salem News columnist Brian Watson presents a powerful case for moving forward with development of a wind turbine on Winter Island in Salem Harbor. A very smart man once told me to never spread criticism and attacks accidentally in the name of rebutting them. Today marks the beginning of the end of coal’s dirty energy legacy in New England, as Dominion of Virginia, owner of Salem Harbor Station power plant in Salem, MA confirmed that it will shut down the facility by 2014. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (known as “FERC”) has delivered a clear message: the time to plan for a future without coal is now.

An ever-expanding library of articles and videos on how, where and when to catch all of New England's top sport and food fish. The latest and greatest new boat releases from manufacturers large and small, as well as a look at some classic models from years past. What's hot in nautical clothing, gear, books, home furnishings, fishing tackle, electronics and more. Contains short videos on every imaginable subject related to New England's aquatic resources, from fishing to history, kayaking to engine maintenance. The plant does have its nautical benefits, however, as local mariners “steer for the stacks” when coming into port. It’s clear that Salem, founded more than 350 years ago, has not made the most of its waterfront, at least when viewed through a wide-angle lens. Pickering Wharf is home to condos, shops, restaurants and, most important to boaters, slips, moorings and a launch service.
Next to the powerplant is the Salem Harbor ferry terminal and dock, providing high-speed shuttle service to and from Boston Harbor. After making your way through the mooring field near Hawthorne Cove Marina (the first of 2 marinas in the harbor), you can get a glimpse of the famed House of the Seven Gables, the Custom House, the Hawkes House and other 18th- and 19th-century buildings along Derby Street.
Continuing southwest, you can’t miss Derby Wharf, punctuated by a distinctive squat, cubical lighthouse at its southern end. The National Park Service offers several walking tours of Salem from its headquarters at the Salem Maritime National Historic Site at the base of Central Wharf off Derby Street.


If you continue south of Derby Wharf you’ll come to the channel leading into Palmer Cove and the Palmer Cove Yacht Club, a private club offering reciprocal privileges.
While Salem Harbor naturally steals the spotlight, it should be mentioned that Salem also borders the Danvers River to the north. Derby Wharf was one of the largest and busiest wharves in America during the days of the China Trade. A crowd gathers to watch a reenactment of the witch trials outside the Peabody Essex Museum.
Betsy Frawley Haggerty is a lifelong sailor, an award winning journalist and the former editor of Offshore Magazine. The Salem News reports that Salem, Massachusetts, mayor Kim Driscoll is making a push to generate more business and revenue for the city’s waterfront by improving access to, from and around the harbor. The plan involves improving the Blaney Street Ferry Landing (recently purchased from the powerplant) to welcome small cruise ships, and also to move ahead with the long-awaited Salem Wharf project.
Driscoll even appointed a new “Port Development Manager”—none other than Russ Vickers, former owner of Hawthorne Cove Marina, which was sold last fall to Brewer Yacht Yards.
The city’s waterfront goals include expanding public access, establishing a commercial pier for whale-watch and charter boats, and generating more revenue for the city. Two weeks ago, the mayor and other city officials flew to Seattle to meet with representatives from Holland America Line, a major cruise company that stops at New England ports. Recently, she created a new part-time position — port development manager — in the hope of generating more business and revenue for the city’s waterfront.
Under pressure from public health groups, environmental organizations, political leaders and community members, Dominion Energy of Virginia has taken another important step toward closing Salem Harbor Station, its 60-year-old, coal-fired power plant in Salem, Massachusetts.

Each destination section contains detailed information on navigation, marinas, public dockage, Harbormaster contacts, fuel docks, anchorages, launch ramps, fishing options, service and repair.
From tuna to scup, the Fishing section contains valuable, updated information on rigs, lures, baits, hot spots, and techniques.
Whether you want to be entertained or informed, or both, you'll find something of interest in the video library. Salem does (supposedly), and plenty of them, along with warlocks, sorcerers and other purported practitioners of the dark arts. The Salem Harbor power station, one of the 10 largest powerplants in New England, dominates the shoreline, occupying 65 waterfront acres. Another unfortunate landmark is the city’s sewage-treatment plant, located just northeast of the powerplant. The island, once home to a military installation, is now a marine recreational park featuring seasonal dinghy and rack storage, a boat ramp, RV and tent camping, scenic picnic areas and the Fort Pickering Lighthouse. The town of Salem recently purchased the dock and property from the power company, and plans to use the dock for small cruise ships and other commercial vessels.


Built more than 200 years ago, the massive stone wharf stretches into the harbor for a half-mile. Built in the late ’70s on the site of an industrial oil facility, Pickering Wharf is home to condos, shops, restaurants and, most important to boaters, slips, moorings and a launch service. Another option for touring the city is the Salem Trolley, which circles Salem’s popular destinations, allowing passengers to get on and off at will. A bit farther south, at buoy G “3”, is the channel (8 feet MLW) leading to Dion Yacht Yard, a full-service boatyard offering haulout, engine repair and more. The river offers a couple of protected coves for small-boat exploration or anchoring, as well as the McCabe Marina and Recreation Area. The city has also received state funds to dredge the South River basin, which runs along a new harborwalk between the Congress Street Bridge and Lafayette Street. Before that he served as the editor of Northeast Boating from 2005 to 2009, and as managing editor of Salt Water Sportsman magazine from 1995 to 2004. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. You'll also find videos, links and info on places to shop, dine, and local points of interest. Get the scoop on recent search-and-rescue ops, marina news, dredging, boating and fishing events, weather alerts, fishing reports, and anything else that happens along the coast.
It's also where you can learn about recent noteworthy catches, watch entertaining fishing videos and find links to state regulations and license information. Yes, it’s true that this historic seaport on the North Shore of Massachusetts is best known as the site of the infamous “witch trials” of the late 1600s, in which 20 people were killed for supposedly associating with the devil, but boaters will find a lot more to love about Salem than its dark past. Its 5 stacks extend upwards between 250 and 485 feet, and a 150,000-ton coal pile and 10 oil tanks sit adjacent to the massive plant building. Last but not least, a sprawling, white, former mill building (now an office park) forms a visual wall near the southwest end of the harbor.
In Salem’s heyday as a commercial shipping hub, the wharf received some of the largest and grandest sailing vessels in the world.
It’s an ideal place to keep your boat, as it affords immediate access to the downtown area. You can get a sense of what life was like aboard these boats by visiting the Friendship, a replica of a 1797, three-masted merchant ship that floats alongside the wharf. It’s a great place to launch a small boat or kayak for exploring the river or fishing the area’s many hotspots.
