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!

The self-guided tour was an enriching and at times emotional experience. The history of this ship is made even more tangible and real by the friendly and knowledgeable docents - many of whom are happy to recount real stories from the Jeremiah O'Brien's glory days as a successful Liberty Ship in WWII. I strongly recommend this experience to anyone, and definitely don't miss out on the engine room. The engineer on duty when I visited was a wealth of knowledge!

The SS Jeremiah O'Brien was truly an awesome tour to come aboard, I highly recommend visiting it if you're at all interested. The crew is incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic, as they restore _and operate_ the vessel. The Jeremiah O'Brien is a _working_ WW2-era vessel they occasionally take out on cruises. They do all the repairs using the same methods and materials as the original vessel. The staff greatly enhanced the tour of this massive vessel, and I spent a decent amount of time aboard. It was well worth the cost, which wasn't much anyways. Very little of the ship is cordoned off, I was able to visit from the engine room at the bottom, to the bridge at the top, and from bow to stern.

Had a great experience with the overnight program. Great group activity for scouts and schools. Very well organized, educational and fun tours. Kids had a great time. Highly recommended.

They let you go virtually everywhere on this vessel. The engine room is open for the most part and is by far the coolest part of the ship.

An amazing ship/museum that has a very knowledgeable group of volunteers taking care of her. Don't forget to leave a donation so that she can sail for many more decades.

I have been on the O'Brien only once at its pierside berth. It is full of history and displays depicting its participation during WWII. Something that one doesn't think about are the various views from the O'Brien of San Francisco. As the ship sits high over the waterfront, it offers smart photographers an opportunity to get unique City views that aren't seen by others at street level. I'd like to spend more time on the O'Brien while it is underway one day

Great tour for the GoCard. Spent time in all compartments. I was surprised at how open most of the boat was for tours. Boys enjoyed the front gunnery position that was open if you climbed up into that position.
