Shadows of the Ship Tour

  • Ages 11+ Only

    In this exclusive 60 minute tour, participants will get a chance to explore areas of the USS Yorktown (CV-10) not seen since her decommissioning in 1970. Campers will grab a hardhat and headlamp as they descend into the bowels of the Yorktown exploring the shadows of the ship. Campers will learn about the functions of Damage Control and keeping the ship from sinking, Plot Rooms with gun fire control, and how to safely stow bombs and explosives while standing on the bottom of the ship.

    Due to the nature of this program, it is available for overnight campers ONLY as an add-on program, with a maximum of 12 people per tour. Campers must be 11 years of age or older and able to climb up and down 7 flights of ladders. This tour is not recommended for individuals with claustrophobia, breathing or mobility issues.
