We had a tour by Art that lasted at least an hour. You could tell he had a love for the ship and enjoyed imparting knowledge and telling stories. It was great.

The Slater was a better trip than I thought it would be, not that I thought it would be bad but I didn't expect the kids to have a blowout of such fun! As a group sleeping over, the tour was informative but free time is where the kids get to use their imagination and roam the boat freely with their friends. The guys running the tours are fantastic, thank you for the great experience!
The ship is in great condition. The tour guide was very good, and knew the ship well. It's a great piece of history that lets you see how our sailors lived in WWII.
