Overview
More
During World War II 563 Destroyer Escorts battled Nazi U-Boats on the North Atlantic protecting convoys of men and supplies. In the Pacific, they stood first in line to defend naval task forces from Kamikaze attacks. Today only one remains afloat in America. Step back in time. Return to 1945 aboard USS SLATER. See how Sailors worked, hear the sounds of a living ship, touch a piece of American history, and walk the decks where hundreds of Sailors have walked before.

This boat is well kept. The tour of the boat is made by groupe of 10-15 person. We had a very good guide who took time to answer the question of every one and did not press us.

Very informative and interesting tour. We had visited after a Memorial Day parade in town. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to go up and down ladders and stairs. Well worth it!

Mr. Smith was a great guide. He really enjoys the subject and looks forward to questions on the tour. There is some climbing up and down ladders. The ship was renovated after it was re-acquired from Greece. The work looks great. We walked from our...More

I thought I knew a lot when it came WWII naval vessels but Mr Fox was outstanding! His knowledge for the USS Slater was off the charts. If I were at the helm of your group I would steer them to be in Alan's tour....More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit!!! We learned so much about our naval history! Art was a wonderful guide and answered all our questions!!! The highlight was sitting and moving on real anti-aircraft artillery!!! The tour was over an hour and half but it flew by!...More

Everyone of us (family of four and 70 years old grandma) enjoyed the tour, especially our two boys, 7 and 10. Thorough tour of the ship, every room and weapons. The boys got to try the machine guns (not armed of course)!
