A must!
Sep 2020
This was a self guided tour that explains everything about this huge retired icebreaker. It shows how they make a path for the freighters through the very thick ice. We seen everything from the hull all the way up to the bridge. There were video’s explaining along the way. There’s a lot of stairs to climb.

Awesome vessel worth the trip
Sep 2020 • Couples
Amazing ship to tour and learn her history. Did the self tour today with hubby and completely enjoyed it even though it was his request. Found the ship very interesting and we were able to see her top to bottom and tip to tail.

She is amazing in size and scale and it was great to see the inner workings of such an amazing vessel.

I certainly think she is worth a visit.

This is a great tour to take with your family. Walk thru this ship at your own pace as this is a self guided tour.

Interesting History
Sep 2020
The self guided tour was well laid out, and provided a very interesting history. The guide was retired US Coast Guard and had done a few tours on the ship.

Great access
Aug 2020 • Couples
I've toured a number of ships and this one gives you great access to see most of the ship. Considering Covid I was very happy. There are a number of short movies playing that are all worth watching. The volunteers onboard were all very friendly and helpful. This is an incredible ship that is like no other and well worth the visit.

Neat ship!
Jul 2020 • Family
This was a very neat ship to tour! It was kept up very well and lots of things to see. It’s impressive at how large this ship really is! The ladders are quite steep so you’re advised to be careful. Everyone was helpful and will answer any questions that you have.

Fantastic...especially for ship geeks!
Jul 2020
Absolutely wonderful time; no complaints whatsoever. The ship's history is very interesting and is told using photos and info signs throughout. Everything is well maintained, direction signs are easy to follow, and the people were all very friendly. Depending on if you read everything, plan on about an hour on board (for ship geeks, like me, a little longer).

The interior is utilitarian, not luxurious (it's an icebreaker, not a cruise ship), so don't expect palatial. Admission is $12 per adult for the self-guided tour, which is a bargain.

Overall, a great experience!
