    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 was a Quartermaster on the USS DuPont DD941. I’d like to bring my wife over from Holland to visit the ship. Will we be able to see the Bridge and chartroom? What about my berthing compartment, aft, two decks down, amidship?

          Hi Casey,
          We can definitely get you onto the bridge. The Chartroom is closed to the public but you can see inside. There are a lot of old charts and we didn’t want to rsk them getting stolen or damaged. I’m not sure about your berthing compartment. I would suggest making a reservation at least a week before your visit so we can arrange a tour guide to walk through with you. The guide would be able to get you into any areas that you want to see that aren’t on the tour route.

    I would love information on this for our family get together. We usually have around 35 people. My brother, Dad and couple of brother in laws were in the navy and I think they would find this very fascinating. I would love information on cost and whether or not we would have use of the kitchen. We usually do a weekend in September. Thanks so much,
    Karen 🙂

    Hello! I want to find out about a Girl Scout overnight. There would only be 2 girls and 3 adults—all Girl Scouts.

    What an awesome experience! Staff were so welcoming and kind! Our family made some wonderful memories. We recommend very much! So glad they cared enough to save this ship for future generations.

    Hello, me and my friend are beginning paranormal investigation team, and we would like to know how we could get access to an overnight to ghost hunt and talk to the spirits on board of the ship. We would rather go to a place that is legal to go to and have permission to do so just Incase and I thought this would be the perfect first place for us!

    I would like to say thank you to the group of the USS Edson on our recent overnight stay. Bill was top-notch in his tour of the ship. He shared a wealth of knowledge and it was a pleasure to not only learn about the ship, but hear the many stories attached to the ship. It was also a joy to meet Annette (loved her). Anne was a wonderful host (good to see her again) and thanks, Jack, for taking our pictures. You all were great and really made my stay enjoyable. I definitely want to come back with my brother as he was on another destroyer back in the seventies. I know he will love it. Thanks again!!
