The SS Jeremiah O'Brien is one of two remaining fully functional Liberty ships of the 2,710 built and launched during World War II. Built in Maine and launched in 1943, the O'Brien had a distinguished wartime duty, participating in the D-Day invasion in 1944. Still operational today, she welcomes visitors at Pier 45 for daily tours and occasional cruises of San Francisco bay. The O'Brien has the distinction of being the last unaltered Liberty ship and remains historically accurate. Contact us for more information, or visit us at Fisherman's Wharf today!

"...only a fraction of what there is to enjoy aboard this WWII Liberty Ship..."

My grandfather is one of the volunteers on the ship, and when it came time to decide upon a venue for my wedding, the O'Brien was a no brainer. Our ceremony was held on deck with the backdrop of the City, and the reception was in Cargo Hold #2. Our guests enjoyed scenic San Francisco views and spent the cocktail reception exploring the ship and learning about WWII history in the museum. The staff and ship volunteers helped set up and were a great help. I could not have dreamed of a more beautiful wedding on such a unique and historic setting.

A treasure for all ages! A piece of living history restored and maintained by a dedicated crew and volunteers. Come on board to see what it must have been like to set sail for Normandy during WW2, The JOB crew took the ship back to Normandy in 1994 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of D-Day. While the Coast Guard had concerns the crew was too old and didn't think they could withstand the trip, they were proved wrong! The crew did indeed arrive safely in Normandy in time to celebrate D-Day where many brave soldiers fought for our freedoms! Where there's a will, there's a way! The Jeremiah is docked at Pier 45 in beautiful San Francisco, CA. Come spend a day in the City by the Bay and tour the Jeremiah O'Brien and experience history

Exceptional and unique piece of living history; much to see on the ship, particularly the engine room; docents very helpful; All actual sailings are worth experiencing; views of San Francisco and bridges as well as Alcatraz and Angel Island are spectacular;

The SS Jeremiah O'Brien is a must see historic attraction when visiting San Francisco. Climbing down the rungs to the engine room where the Titanic was filmed is an adventure in itself. That's only a fraction of what there is to enjoy aboard this WWII Liberty Ship. It's a self-guided tour so you get to explore like an adventurer. Stories unfold with the push of a button throughout the journey and knowledgeable volunteers love to chat with you. I've been aboard a few times and it's a joy to watch kids in utter amazement every step of the way.

I lived in SF for 20 years and enjoyed the O'Brien immensely. I'm a history and engineering buff, so naturally the ship and its triple expansion steam engine were an endless attraction. I would suggest that you go when "steam is up" (when I was there this was once a month or so) or for the ship's Fleet Week cruise. That engine, when it comes to life, is an amazing beast. The old timers who run it are the best history guides too. Ask them about their incredible journey to the D-Day commemorations. It is another world compared to the new SF affectation, the Prius or Tesla, which you can hardly tell has been turned on.

The O'Brien is an amazingly wonderful example of living history. Everybody should visit the ship at least once in their lives, and multiple visits will enhance your enjoyment of history. Every child should absolutely visit the ship. Every parent should take their child, and make a real attempt to be underway (the ship moving). This gives every person a real understanding of the history of WW II and is one of the few "living" museums of great historical importance. Different than a warship, this type of merchant ship saved Britain, made our entire war effort possible. As maritime history is my hobby, I have been involved with the O'Brien for over 20 yrs, with some volunteer work included, and have been underway over a dozen times with the ship. Not to be missed.

The Jeremiah O'Brian is an important historical experience. I highly recommend the bay cruise during fleet week, not only is it an amazing way to see San Francisco from the bay, but an exhilarating vantage point for the airshow. The hospitality on board is tops, with continental breakfast, hot dog lunch with beer and wine. The docents are extremely knowledgeable and share detailed information about the ship and the ships role in WW2, along with emotional personal stories. It is a fascinating piece of living history.

I was on board during the parade of ships for Fleet Week 2000 and had a wonderful time, and again in December for a Holiday Dinner for SFPD's Ingleside station. Wonderful history and venue. I recommend people take a cruise on this maritime treasure.
