Make new friends, learn new skills, hear the sea stories from Merchant Marine and Naval Armed Guard veterans, and feel amazing adding your effort to conserve this living monument.
No mariner experience is needed, and you don’t need to have been a crewman or sailor of any type.
Of course, we are always looking for experienced mariners and steam engineers.
Mariners-by-trade and landlubbers alike are always welcome.
Each individual works when they can work, and they do the work they choose to do.
We do have crew work days on Wednesday and Saturday mornings, but if you can’t work on those days, you can work on the days that fit your schedule.
However, no perk can match the satisfaction of knowing you are on a team of outstanding people who maintain and perpetuate the legacy of individuals who risked their lives in times of need, to preserve the world as a better place for mankind and to assist in defending those unable to defend themselves!
Volunteers with 200 or more hours of service become members of the “Working Crew” and are eligible to work the summer cruises, when we are cruising, with the approval of their respective department head.
