I attended the 30th Anniversary of SOCOM on board this beautiful ship. It truly is a hidden treasure and I think only known by the locals. Please visit her and see Authentic Naval History. The views from all angles of the this ship are breathtaking,...More

We spent about 2 hours aboard the ship, free to explore. I would caution bringing wild or small kids on board as everything is metal with sharp corners. You'd likely need a tetanus shot. The history of the boat is fascinating and the guide is...More

It is right next to the Florida Aquarium which is great. You can walk around the liberty ship with many exhibits inside, guides to answer questions.

First: The nuts and bolts. The ship can be hard to find and there is poor signage. Our GPS signaled three blocks too early and yours might too. Plus, Channelside Drive is also a major cruise port. When the cruise ships are loading or unloading-...More

I always enjoy visiting navy ships. It is amazing to see the crews quarters and the kitchens. Not expensive and a good location. It is right behind the aquarium.

Really neat to explore this old ship, and really nice to do so on your own. You're not bombarded with information and are left to explore what/how you want. Of course if you want more information there are tons of volunteers available. There are a...More

My husband and I decided to visit the Victory. My husband enjoyed touring the Victory. He immediately began explaining the inner workings of the ship. He said it reminded him of the old Navy days. If you are in Channel side, it's worth a tour.
