Fleet Week SS Jeremiah O'Brien Cruise

ID : 42805   
« back to classes page
Hurry to register. This trip sells out immediately! Celebrate the Bay’s great Navy heritage aboard the SS Jeremiah O’Brien, one of two surviving operational Liberty ships. Built in just 56 days and launched in June 1943, she made seven voyages during World War II. In 1994, the volunteer crew of the O’Brien returned the ship to the beaches of Normandy for D-Day +50 years. This Commemorative Voyage was made in honor of all those, in the war zones and on the home front, whose sacrifices were vital to the war effort. Once aboard, you will sail out and under the Golden Gate Bridge. A continental breakfast is served in the morning and a BBQ hot dog/burger lunch is served on the main deck in the afternoon. Tour the engine room, or wander up to the Flying Bridge. Later, enjoy the BEST aviation show, featuring the US Navy Blue Angels, as well as vintage planes performing amazing gravity-defying stunts over the spectacular backdrop of the San Francisco Bay. The Blue Angels fly, weather permitting, about 3 p.m. Since traffic is so heavy after the air show, once we dock you will be given free time to have a no-host dinner before the return trip to Modesto.
