The Lane Victory is the last working "Victory" ship that was utilized in World War II. It was a supply ship that ferried supplies to allies and US servicemen across the water. The difference between the Lane Victory and the Iowa is that you can tour almost the whole ship on Lane Victory whereas the Iowa is limited. It's great... More

After visiting the battleship Iowa some months ago I was anxious to see the nearby SS Lane Victory sitting all alone at the very end of the San Pablo gentrified waterfront. Parking is extensive and free. Access to the Lane Victory is nominal, so both free parking and inexpensive ship access was a refreshing change from the rather expensive Iowa... More

This is an AP2 class naval auxiliary. Commissioned near the end of WW11 and serving in Korea and Vietnam she is a great example of this duties this type of ship carried out. She is dedicated to the service of the Merchant Marine during WW11. Now operated by volunteers you do a self guided tour that is divided into three... More

We had attended the Tall Ships Festival, which happened to provide us access to both the USS Iowa and the SS Lane Victory. The Lave Victory was by far the better tour. Access to a huge portion of the ship was available including climbing down into the operational boiler room. The volunteer staff were very friendly and well informed on... More

This is a self guided tour which will last about 2 hours. It is very interesting for the history buff. Watch out the they try to get your money at the gift shop and you must walk through to exist. The ship receives no outside funding for restoration. Keeping that in mind what they have accomplished is incredible!

Went onboard to (a) fly my US Flags onboard the ship and (B) to do a pod cast for my internet radio show. This ship us just so neat and it's stories are intriguing. Skip all the tourist places in LA and see the really special stuff . If you are a veteran this should be a mandatory stop. Permalink:... More

I recently stumbled upon the SS Lane Victory and was very happy to do so. The hours were 9-4 on a recent Friday. Entrance for adults is $5 and $2 for children. Once aboard, you'll feel like you've taken a step back into time. The ship has plenty of decks to climb and halls to explore. There is also a... More

Well, I got a Groupon for this ship and I'm glad I did. After seeing the magnificent USS Iowa, the Lane Victory doesn't really compare. It's waaaay out at the end of the harbor all by its lonesome. The regular cost is only $5.00 and it's really worth to see for an hour or so at that price. We walked... More

If you have the opportunity to take this 1 day excursion you will really enjoy it. Plenty of free parking and short walk to the ship. Once onboard there are areas set up with lots of fresh pastries and coffee, juice & bottled water. There is plenty of seating throughout the ship so you can enjoy the smooth cruise out... More
