A surviving liberty ship that saw action on D-Day and is still in sailing condition is a sight not to be missed for anyone with an interest in naval history. The exhibitions on board bring the wider context of WWII and the Normandy invasion to...More

Of the 2710 Liberty Ships built during WW2 only a handful survive. The Jeremiah O'Brien is one of those and it's been fully restored, ready to go to sea - although it limits excursions to San Francisco. It has operated cruises of about five hours...More
