The SS Jeremiah O’Brien is a World War II Liberty Ship open to the public. It is one of only two fully restored, operating ships out of 2,710 that were used during the war. In addition to being available for private parties, the ship conducts San Francisco Bay cruises in May and October. You can also visit the ship’s store to get yourself a small token of your visit here. The “tour” is self guided. Basically you just walk around with some literature they give you and explore on your own. There is very little here that is off limits so it’s really about how much time you want to spend and how high you want to go. There are crew cabins, captain’s quarters, kitchens, dining areas, sick bays, etc to check out. All small but packed with artifacts from the time period. The engine room is also a sight to see.
The SS Jeremiah O’Brien is located at Pier 45. Admission price to SS Jeremiah O’Brien is $12. The SS Jeremiah O’Brien was salvaged from the moth ball fleet located in Suisun Bay. Liberty Ships were built to transport cargo and as such smaller in size than battleships.
