For the explorer at heart, bring a friend and join us for a unique, behind-the-scenes tour of unrestored areas of the Battleship. This 4-hour tour consists of small groups with guides.
Guests explore the bow (officer’s country & boatswain locker), third deck (Radio II, brig, after gyro, storage rooms, ammunition handling, Engineer’s office, torpedo area), Interior Communications and Emergency Radio, Engine room #1, the US Marines quarters and the Captain’s Cabin, 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 and sturdy, rubber-soled shoes, and bring a camera!
