Since 1984, the U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Marines and international navies have joined together in the special New York event called Fleet Week. This New York event is intended to pay homage to this country’s very rich naval and maritime history.

This New York event includes many exciting exhibits that most people won’t have a chance to see anywhere else. In addition to the ship tours, visitors will view fighter jet flyovers, watch Marines as they display their martial arts skills, see Coast Guard drug dogs put on live demonstrations and have the chance to chat with some of the 10,000 sailors, marines, soldiers and coast guardsman that will be in the city for this event.

Visitors who plan to take a ship tour should keep the following in mind:

  • Bags will be searched before boarding the ship. Searches similar to those given when boarding an airplane will also be conducted.
  • Be sure to wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Also, visitors should keep in mind that they will be walking up steep ladder-like stairwells. For this reason, women may want to wear pants instead of a skirt.
  • Steep ladders will be part of the tour. Those who may have difficulty navigating these stairwells may not be able to take the tour.
  • Ship tours are not handicap-accessible. There are, however, many other Fleet Week exhibits that are handicap accessible.
  • Strollers, cans, bottles and weapons of any kind are not allowed on the ships. Visitors will be allowed to bring a small water bottle, diaper bag and handbag.
  • Ship tours are available during Fleet Week on Thursday through Tuesday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The lines will likely be shut down at 3:00 p.m. Lines can get quite long, so visitors should try to get there early to ensure a spot on one of the tours.
