Event Details

The Maritime Administration Ready Reserve Fleet is a group of ships waiting for a call to action. They occupy the piers of the former Alameda Naval Air Station in a 5 day standby call up status. They are part of the nation’s quick response sealift capacity; former commercial ships with a new government mission. See them up close and hear of their past lives and current mission. No one else offers this tour.

 

The cruise is planned to take a scenic swing under the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco waterfront, thence to Alameda. The return to Pier 45 will take the ship under the new Bay Bridge span. The time will be from 10am to 2pm for a nice weather window.

 

Natural Gas Jazz Band will provide the tunes, dancing is encouraged. Hot dogs, deli-sandwiches, salads and cookies/ice cream are available for purchase with complimentary beverages to keep you hydrated.

 

Don’t sequester your fun; come cruise with us in October.

SS JEREMIAH O'BRIEN

SS Jeremiah O'Brien

Launched on June 19, 1943, the SS Jeremiah O'Brien is distinguished as being America's last unaltered Liberty Ship. A 441-foot veteran of the Normandy invasion, fully restored and maintained in her original condition, she is as functional today as when she served as a key component of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's "Bridge of Ships" in WWII. The ship is a National Historic Landmark. She and her triple expansion reciprocating steam engine are a National Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark.
