Overnighter – Battleship Cove

What is Battleship Cove?

With Five National Historic Landmark US Naval ships and other craft, Battleship Cove is America’s Fleet Museum.  You will experience firsthand what it was like to serve on board a navy warship from the WWII era. You’ll be sleeping in authentic sailors’ racks. Built of tough cotton canvas stretched across a sturdy aluminum frame, these racks will give you a firsthand feel of what it was like to be a sailor in World War II.
