Live music will be provided by the San Mateo Elks Concert Band. Passengers can tour the engine room to see the triple expansion reciprocating steam engine, as seen in the movie "Titanic", or wander up to the Flying Bridge for a breathtaking view of the San Francisco Bay. For more information and photographs of the ship visit http://www.ssjeremiahobrien.org.

      The S.S. JEREMIAH O'BRIEN is one of two remaining fully functional Liberty Ships of the 2,710 built and launched during WWII. The S.S. JEREMIAH O'BRIEN has the distinction of being the last unaltered Liberty Ship and remains historically accurate. Moored at Pier 45, Fisherman's Wharf (Google Map), she is a premier San Francisco attraction.

      A living museum on the National Register of Historic Places and a National Historic Landmark, the O'Brien transports you back almost seven decades to when sailors braved the harshest of high seas and threat of enemy attack.
