Throughout Fleet Week(Oct 1st to 9th - 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM), thousands of visitors climb aboard amphibious carriers, destroyers and cruisers docked at the Embarcadero to get a glimpse into the day-to-day lives of the sailors serving in the U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard and Canadian Navy.
The public was encouraged to attend tours and interact with Sailors, Coasties and Marines.
When touring the ships, visitors are encouraged to bring as few items as possible when arriving for their tour and are recommended to wear flat-heeled, closed-toe shoes. High heel shoes are not permitted.
No pre-registration or RSVP is required; first come, first served basis.
All persons visiting the ships 18 years of age and over are required to show a valid US state/federal government issued photo identification card.
Tours may not be appropriate for those with certain medical conditions. There are steep ladders (stairways) to climb and uneven surfaces to traverse during a ship tour, and thus, tours may be difficult for parents carrying young children.
Failure to consent to screening and inspection will result in denial of authorization to enter the property.
