For the explorer at heart, bring a friend and join us for a unique, behind-the-scenes tour of un-restored areas of the
Battleship. The four-hour tour consists of small groups with guides. Guests explore the bow (officers’ country,
boatswain locker), third deck (Radio II, brig, after gyro, storage rooms, ammunition handling, Engineer’s office),
Engine room #1, superstructure (Captain’s cabin, armored conning tower), reefer, aft diesel, the Marine
Compartment, and climb inside the fire control tower to the top of the ship. The Azalea Coast Radio Club will be in
Radio II to explain their work on the ship’s radio transmitters. It’s the tour that brings out the “Indiana Jones” in all
of us, without the snakes!
The program is for adults only (ages 16 and up) and limited to 40 participants. It is not appropriate for those who
have difficulty climbing narrow ladders or over knee-high hatches. Wear warm, comfortable, washable clothing,
sturdy, rubber-soled shoes and bring a camera! Registration and payment are due Thursday before the event.
