Two Group Tours You Don’t Want to Miss at Patriots Point!

Catherine Turner Mar 16, 2023

The USS Yorktown can feel like a labyrinth during your first visit. The ship is vast. Visitors can spend only two hours flying through the four self-guided tours – or they can meander at their own pace, which might take a whole day. If you’ve got a group… this could get interesting.

There are two fantastic options if you’re looking for a ninety-minute guided tour overview. Pay attention to the group size and specs below so you can choose the best fit for you!

The Captain’s Guided Tour

Bulldog Tour guides take you into the Captain’s Quarters, the Fo’c’sle (or Anchor Room), and through the B-25 Bomber. The cost is $15 per person in addition to your paid admission. This tour can accommodate groups of up to twenty people.

You can learn more by checking out the webpage below. Don’t forget to book at least one week in advance!

Bulldog Tours: Captain’s Tour Aboard the USS Yorktown

This tour does involve climbing ladders/stairs – if you’re looking for a tour to accommodate any mobility challenges, check out the Wings & Things Guided Tour listed next!

Wings & Things Guided Tour

Check out the aircraft in the hanger bay and the flight deck of the USS Yorktown on this group-only tour! A group qualifies as ten or more visitors covered by one form of payment. This tour also includes a look at the Apollo 8 Space Capsule (check out the link for more background) located on the hanger deck.

There are two great things about this tour: first, you can have a large group attend at the same time! Wings & Things can accommodate numbers ranging from ten to two hundred. And second, there’s an elevator between the hanger deck and the flight deck – making this a great tour for anyone experiencing mobility challenges.

Don’t forget to book this tour two weeks out to guarantee a spot! You can see a preview below.
