Please lock your car and secure valuables out of sight.
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled tour time.
Your tour guide will meet you at the kiosk located in the main ticketing location at Patriots Point and walk you to the Yorktown.
Tours take place rain or shine. In the event of dangerous weather, your tour will be rescheduled or your ticket will be refunded.
What to Wear & Bring
Please wear closed-toe shoes, and don’t bring or wear anything that could encumber your passage through narrow areas or steep staircases.
The ship is hot in the summer and cold in the winter, so dress accordingly.
Safety is a priority. It is imperative that you stay with your tour guide and carefully follow their instructions while on your tour.
Cameras are permitted; however we ask that you do not record or take pictures while your tour guide is speaking. Many of the stories you will hear are of heroic sacrifice and we ask that you are sensitive to the surviving families and other veterans that served on the Yorktown.
The Yorktown hosts camping groups on Fridays and Saturdays and has special event rentals available year round. On the Haunted Tour, we are not alone on the ship and will come across others enjoying the ship as well.
All tour guests will be required to agree to and sign a waiver of liability prior to boarding the Yorktown. Please click here for a copy of the waiver. Anyone under the age of 18 must have this document signed by a parent or guardian.
You are encouraged to ask questions and you may even find your tour more immersive if you do ask questions. If you feel inclined, gratuities are accepted.
Please contact us directly if you have any questions.
