SS Jeremiah O'Brien Tours

SS Jeremiah O'Brien
San Francisco has one of the only remaining historic World War II Liberty ships docked in its bay, and it is open to visitors. Named for American Revolutionary War ship captain, the SS Jeremiah O’Brien is one of only two currently operational World War II Liberty ships afloat of the 2,700 built during the war. The ship survived the storming of Normandy on D-Day in 1944, and is now a National Historic Landmark visitors can tour near Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco.  

The preserved Liberty ship is completely unaltered, allowing for an authentic and accurate historical experience of exploring the ship just as it was made. Walking through the hallways and on deck, one can truly experience a time and place of being on the ocean in wartime decades ago.  Everything from the engine room to the flying bridge is accessible to visitors, allowing a rare glimpse into life at sea and at war at that time.

Practical Info

The ship is open daily from 9 am to 4 pm on Pier 45 at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. On weekends the main steam engine is operated so that visitors can see an engine in action.
Address: 11 Pier 45, San Francisco, California, USA
Hours: Open daily 9 am to 4 pm
