The SS Red Oak Vicory is open to the public on weekends and two days during the week (Tuesday and Thursday) from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm. The environment is casual and the hours are flexible.

If you want to know more about any of our volunteer opportunities, please contact me by phone or email at the address below, or better yet, drop by the ship and say "Hello". We will be glad to show you around and talk about making the SS Red Oak Victory great again. Please contact kristen@redoakvictory.us.

The crew has been working since 1998 to bring the ship back to life and we are hopeful to be able to light off the boilers in 2017 for the first time since 1968 when the ROV made its last voyage from Viet Nam to San Francisco.

We are looking forward to meeting you!
