Tour USS Hornet aircraft carrier in Alameda

Admission fee: $15/person     (Optional meal offship: $10-$15)


The USS Hornet is a decommissioned aircraft carrier ported at Alameda Point (former Naval base). Self guided tours and group tours (some in off-limits areas) are available.

Once a month the Hornet hosts Living Ship Day.  There is use of the aircraft elevator, mission briefings, movement of aircraft and so on.  We will be touring on the July Living Ship date.

If we have enough attendees, we might get our own group tour.  If not possible, then we'll join the public tour group.

A suggested dining place after the Hornet tour is the The Wescafe.

Because of current low attendee count, I've opened this up to be a cross-post event with GLBT 40+ Social Group.

    It's quite interesting. I haven't toured for a couple of years, so am expecting to see some new displays. See you there!
