We are looking forward to staying overnight on board an actual World War II submarine!
• Minimum age – 6 years old, with appropriate supervision • We are limited to a maximum of 48 participants (kids and adults) • Each child must be accompanied by an adult/guardian • $45 / person
What to bring:
Each crewmember is responsible for bringing his/her own sleeping bag and personal items. The bunks on board the submarine do not have sheets or blankets. It is also recommended that you bring the following, but pack sparingly (remember, space is limited on a submarine!): - Warm jacket or layers (the sub is warm inside, but nights can be chilly on the pier) - Pajamas and change of clothing (if desired) - Toiletries - Flashlight - Camera - Cards, board games or DVDs (we do not stock any entertainment, but the sub has a TV/DVD player if you choose to bring your own movies) Contraband (items not allowed aboard the boat):
- Radios, portable CD players, iPods, etc. - Handheld electronics/gaming devices - Cell phones are allowed (for adults), but please keep them on silent or vibrate and refrain from using during the guided tour. If it is necessary to use your phone during the overnight program, please be discreet as it generally takes away from the experience of all on board when phones are ringing and participants are not engaging in the tasks onboard. - No one should have any personal food. All food brought to the program should be collected at the beginning of the program. This helps us to prevent infestation and damage to this National Historic Landmark. No gum! - Alcoholic beverages and smoking are not permitted onboard. The San Francisco Maritime National Park Association is not responsible for any lost or stolen articles. FOOD: Please eat dinner prior to your arrival and plan to have breakfast after disembarking in the morning.
Please be advised that there is no cooking allowed on board the submarine. As stated above, no one may have any personal food; however, you may wish to bring a group-wide snack for the evening and/or morning. When selecting foods to bring, consider the ease of preparation and clean up, as you will be responsible for any spills---bagels, donuts, juice boxes and prepared sandwiches are ideal choices – please, no popcorn or trail mix type foods or gum. Due to heightened nut allergies, snack with nuts (trail mix, peanut butter cookies, etc.) will not be allowed on board. There is no refrigeration available, so be sure to bring a cooler if you have perishables. You will also need to supply plates, napkins and utensils; we will provide your group with cups and paper towels. Please do not bring portable gas stoves, barbecue grills, etc. We will provide hot water for use in preparing hot beverages. We will also supply instant coffee, tea, drinking water and cocoa for your group---if you don’t see it already set out in the crew’s mess area, just ask. Eating space is available in the mess deck of the submarine, where there are four tables with bench seats. However, as was the case on board all World War II submarines, eating space is limited. If your group is large you may want to plan on eating in shifts (just as real submariners did). Registration is due April 1, 2017
