January 7, April 29, October 7, 2017 For the explorer at heart, bring a friend and join us for a unique, behind-the-scenes tour of un-restored areas of the Battleship. The four-hour tour. from 12 PM until 4:30 PM, consists of small groups with guides. Guests explore the bow (officers' country, boatswain locker), third deck (Radio II, brig, after gyro, storage rooms, ammunition handling, Engineer's office), Engine room #1, superstructure (Captain’s cabin, armored conning tower), reefer, aft diesel, the Marine Compartment, 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, sturdy, rubber-soled shoes and bring a camera! Registration and payment of $50 per person or $45 for Friends members or active military are due the Thursday before the event.
