  • Definitely worth the time and small amount of money. Can tour the entire ship.
  • Great idea, can't wait for completion
  • Great docent! Seen many lighthouses and climbed every one I could but never toured a lightship! Great for children too!
  • Great educational tour of a preserved timepiece of our nautical history. Worth the trip
  • Very informative tour that is inexpensive at only five dollars per adult, it is an impressive thing to think of lighthouse service and later coastguard out in the mouth of the Delaware bay on one of those ships. Talk about an exposed anchorage. The ships themselves were basically floating air compressors and generators to run the fog horn light and radio beacon. The boat lists because it is aground in its slip, the current on the lewes channel silts the slip in, about 17,000 hours so far have been put into the restoration of the boat and it is in pretty good shape for a 75 year old steel boat. The park and marina that it is near is very well maintained and right off the main drag of Lewes Delaware with excellent food options, and shopping.
