    I would like to do a business team building event.
    Please provide the cost for 10-people, what the requirements are and restrictions if any.
    Days/dates available.
    Would fishing be allowed or if we arrived by boat is docking available overnight.
    Please advise.
    Thank you.

    Please provide the same information that you sent to John Sheriff. Our firm is interested doing this in August for 14-16 people.

    It may end up being just a day trip instead of overnite.

    Thank you for your service and time.

    I would like to thank everyone of the staff members who allowed the Morenci High School Symphonic Band to play on the ship. You are all amazing people. Thank you for the amazing time and experience.

    I would like to book a overnight but was wondering if it would be possible to pay more for fewer than a 10 person group to experience the paranormal activity on the destroyer

      Hi Cobey,
      We do not allow paranormal investigations on our regular overnights. Any paranormal investigations must be booked through Metro Paranormal Investigations. You can reach them through their website HERE.
      If you are interested in just staying on board with a group of 9 or less, we do have 2 public overnights scheduled this summer. The first is June 9 and the second is August 25. Information can be found on our event calender.

    My daughter and I just went on the Edson for the overnight program. It was an amazing experience. The Paranormal and life stories that were told by the volunteers and crew members added so much to the experience . You can tell that they have a great passion for this ship and the Navy, in which they served. We had the opportunity to visit places that were normally off limits to the public, Which may the experience more memorable. I think we even got a visit from Paul ( a sailor that died on the ship) because we found a penny on the top bunk the next morning after my daughter hit the bell 3 times with her coins. I think he wanted her to do it again. I would recommend this event to anyone that has a passion for naval ships, Paranormal experiences, or just wants the history of this ship. Thank you Carla, Bill and the rest of the volunteers for making our time on this ship unforgettable .

    I am a Scoutmaster and Navy veteran, and I would love to bring my Boy Scout Troop for an overnight experience next spring. Could you please send me some information and any details on group discounts?
